CTNX is here, and I have a table! If you are attending, stop by and say Hi. I'll have you know I learned to talk at a young age so I got really good at saying Hi. I made some doodads and whatsits (necklaces, books, prints, stickers) and I can sell them to you if you are a consumer of material goods. If you are more into looking at things, that's cool too. I won't judge.

Since I am awfully clever, I made a map that shows you where my booth is. Unfortunately the folks at the Marriott wouldn't let me paint an arrow on the floor of the convention hall leading to my booth. So if you aren't good at maps you might have to resort to wandering around aimlessly until you find me.

Indie Speed Run 2013 - Kingly Speed Run

I recently participated in the 2013 Indie Speed Run: a game development challenge where teams create a game in 48 hours incorporating a Theme and an Element.  The games are now up on the website and ready

Our theme was "Retreat" and the element was "A Green Triangle"

We made a game where a cowardly king retreats from a dragon throwing peasants as indicated by green triangles and jumping over small objects.

I made all the art assets designs and animations in 48 hours. It was exhausting and a lot of fun to make a game from scratch in so little time. (I don't take any credit for the programming, music or sound effects)

Please play and rate my game at: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/content/indie-speed-run/?game=382
If that doesn't work try playing here: http://poemdexter.com/unity-player/indiespeedrun.html

Don't forget to rate it with no less then 5 stars.

How to Poop Game

For the month of July I participated  in a game design challenge: to create a game in one month. The theme for the challenge was 'Subversive Edutainment' - A game that either teaches something that maybe shouldn't be taught, or, teaches something entirely different from what it proposes to teach.
You can check out all the entries -Here-

I teamed up with Robert Seaton to mak"How to Poop"  
The interactive guide on the act of defecation!

here are some screenshots:

I recently finished work for a video for a nutrition app with How it Works Media. I  did the storyboard and  illustrated everything. It's a cute video and I like how everything turned out.
