New Game: DIG_IT!

I just released the in-development version of my new game, DIG_IT!, which is a retro-inspired roguelike/dig-dug-like written in lua with love2d.

New 3D Printable Object: NES Cart Covers

I designed this simple NES cart cover to use as little material as possible, but still be robust enough to print even on janky printers. Hopefully this will help keep your NES carts safe and sound for future generations. It’s available on thingiverse for the low price of FREE.

Rassler

Rassler is a little 2D 1980s-inspired pro wrestling RPG that I’ve been developing in my spare time, using the Love2d engine. It’s free, I’ve been doing updates pretty regularly, and plan on continuing to do so. Currently only built for OS X, but Windows builds are coming soon.

Spatial Computing

Working on a new niche-specific tumblr lately, Spatial Computing, tracking how the growth of using new sensors and positional tracking will alter human lives. But in a fun way.

Super Micro Paint

Super Micro Paint is a very simple, very fun, web-based version of the simple pixel-based animation and drawing toys I had as a kid. It exports animated GIFs and has one-click upload to imgur, too.

flickgame

Tiny, web-based, game engine for creating games contained to 16 drawings (each an individual color). Makes me think of WarioWare Inc.

Transformy

“Transform your whole list, with just one example.” Paste in source data. Type in the format you want. Source data is massaged to fit new format. Very simple and works great.

COBE

Yes, please: COBE stands for Code of Business Ethics. Cobe is a conversation simulator, originally a database backed port of MegaHAL but a bit more now.” As you know I’m a bit of a sucker for chatter bots that learn.

Genetic Football

As a big fan of genetic walkers, and genetic cars, this is right up my alley. Can I get a baseball version please?

Hex Preview

Dead simple hex color scheme web app. Just type in your hex codes, and it will update in real time. You can add any number of colors at once to see how they look together, too.

All Major Browsers Fall At Pwn2Own Day Two

What’s that they say about castles built on sand? Two researchers on Thursday took down the four major browsers, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Apple Safari, as Pwn2Own, the annual hacking contest that runs in tandem at CanSecWest, wound down in Vancouver.

Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander

A new game from Massive Damage: A rogue-like sci-fi strategy survival game with base building, tactical combat, crew management and emergent storytelling. 90% of the words in that sentence make me so happy. Feels like equal parts X-Com, Civilization, and FTL. It looks great, too. The visual aesthetic is this kind of atemporal “18-bit” style […]
