The games on this page were all created for game jams, contests or classes. Due to the time constraints under which they were created, they are not quite as polished as my other games. That doesn’t mean they aren’t fun, though.
This bullet hell shoot-em-up is different every time you play. The enemy bullet patterns are procedurally generated, so you never know what to expect.
Use the arrow keys to move your ship, and the Z key to attack.
This game was created as a class project. I am extremely pleased with how it turned out, and I may expand on the concept in the future.
Explore the twilit seas as a spirit of light.
The game plays somewhat like a shoot-em-up. However, you have no physical form, and can only travel by moving your spirit from one body to another. Rather than shooting enemies, you must enter their bodies to restore them to their normal forms.
You will move with whatever body you currently inhabit. Click on another body to instantly move to its location. If the target was an enemy, this will restore it to normal. If you move off-screen or collide with bullets, spikes, or tentacles, you will take damage. On the other hand, if you pass over green items, you will be healed.
The game is somewhat complex, but if you take the time to understand it, it is a fantastic experience.
Dungenerations is a procedurally-generated roguelike shooter about the connection between parents and children.
Each time you start a new game, you play as the child of the previous player character. You can leave items with your children so that they will be available in the next playthrough, but any items on your person are lost forever when you die. Leaving behind a legacy is necessary to defeat the DungeonLord, since each character has a limited lifespan.
This game was created in two days for the 2013 Global Game Jam. I may expand the concept in the future.
To achieve Nirvana, you must pray at the shrine at the top of the temple. However, reaching this shrine will not be easy. It is a task that will take many lifetimes.
By praying at small shrines, you gain karma. Your karma determines what form you take when you are reincarnated. Each form has different abilities that will allow you to reach different parts of the temple.
Use the arrow keys to move, and the Z key to jump.
This game was created in two days with a team for the 2012 Global Game Jam.
This game requires four players.
There are a series of conveyor belts in a factory, carrying a variety of strange items. You need to catch the good items in a bucket, and avoid collecting the bad items.
However, moving the bucket requires the cooperation of all four players. The bucket’s position is determined by how many players are holding their buttons down. Trying to coordinate everyone is a chaotic, hilarious experience.
