Other Projects

What other games have I made?

Over 9 years of indie game development, I’ve made at least 25 games. For the past 3 years, I’ve completed the “Seven Day Roguelike” contest (7DRL). I won a programming contest for “Who can write the best ‘Space Invaders’ clone with the fewest lines”. I wrote an Atari ‘Star Raiders’ clone in 500 lines of code. I have worked in pure text, ascii, 2D, and 3D. If there’s another D, i’ll get to it, but *after* I finish “Approaching Infinity”.

Random Realms, my major classical roguelike:

Random Realms took me 4 years to release, and there is still nothing else out there like it. Every time you start a new game, an entire host of 26 monsters is created from a list of 45 different abilities and 10 stats. So it’s not just the dungeons and items that are random. It’s everything. It even invents a new background story each time! Of course it also contains other common roguelike elements, such as potions, scrolls, an identify system, selectable skills, leveling up, traps, and a complete magic system.

88 Pages (7DRL 2013)

A Puzzle-Roguelike you can win in 20 minutes. Collect the 88 Pages and recite the spell to ascend. Fight elemental monsters with elemental magic. Features an ever-changing single level that can transform from forest to dungeon to swamp to cave. Don’t Lose Hope!

The Well Of Enchantments (7DRL, 2012):

Subtitled, “An Exploitation of the Superclass”. Eat your sword to gain invisibility? Zap a lightning bolt out of your sandwich? Wield your boots as a weapon? Wear a scroll as a helmet? A roguelike where any item can have any  power!

  2. Really cool to see another game designer from the Northern VA area. Maybe we should get together and chat or even team up? I work with a small team at Happy Square Productions: http://thelandofeyas.com/

    I’m a game designer and artist – always looking for someone to do program for me haha.
