Play the part of the daycare robot that must protect babies from hazards like fire pits, robodogs, and zombabies. Bring babies to their parents when they arrive, and protect your children and your commission as a daycare robot!

Sidescrolly Funtime

Sidescrolly FuntimeI participated in another game jam last weekend, and this game was the result! It seems like a standard platformer at first, but there’s a bit more to it than that. You’ll have to play it for yourself to see!

This game was created with Henry Lutts, David Yousefi, Ryan Horn and Raymond Wong.

New Monster Commander Demo

I’ve been hard at work on Monster Commander, and I’ve decided it’s time to share some of the progress I’ve made. I updated the game’s early demo. While there are a number of small but significant additions to the AI and user interface, the most significant changes are new game modes. It’s now possible to generate a random battle, which can be played against the computer or a nearby friend. Random battles include a number of new monsters and spells. There are 11 monsters and 29 spells added so far.

As a reminder, the game is still very early in development, but there’s already plenty of fun to be had with it.

Multiplayer Monster Commander

While Monster Commander is primarily going to be a single-player experience, it will also have a local multiplayer mode! I’ve been demoing the multiplayer in my area, and at the insistence of some of the people who’ve played it, I’m putting the multiplayer demo online.

Check it out on the Monster Commander page!

Monster Commander Demo

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything about Monster Commander, but I’ve been hard at work on it for some time now. While it’s still a very early work-in-progress, I’m releasing a demo for anyone interested in the game. It is entirely controlled by the mouse.

Monster Commander will be a tactical RPG with an emphasis on smart decision-making over grinding and luck. Your army will consist of monsters recruited from the ranks of your enemies. Each monster will have very different abilities, and forming the right team will be crucial to achieving victory.

Update to Dungenerations


DungenerationsI’ve just made a small update to Dungenerations, my procedurally-generated roguelike shooter about the connection between parents and children.

It was created in two days for the 2013 Global Game Jam, so I didn’t have time to add sound or fix every bug. Those oversights have now been addressed!

Super Dracula Track and Field 1514

Super Dracula Track and Field 1514I created another fun little game for my third Purple Monkey Game Jam.

As Dracula, you need to run and jump past obstacles in order to reach your coffin before the sun rises. In darkness, you’re fast and invincible, but in light, you’re slow and vulnerable to attacks.

Use the arrow keys to run and jump. After draining the blood of 5 enemies, press Space to transform into a bat.

This game was created in two days with Takorn Sueksagan, Freddy Garcia, Jonathan Bowman and Changbai Li.
