Welcome

Hi!

I'm a software developer living in Melbourne, Australia.

Utensil Quest

Made in 48 hours, for Global Game Jam 2015.

A cooperative stealth game. One player must sneak past the guards to retrieve the utensils they need to eat their dinner. The other players control the security cameras. Player one relies on their buddies to tell them where the guards are and when and where it's safe to move.

Me vs Me

Made in 48 hours, for Global Game Jam 2014.

Me vs Me is a competitive hot-seat game. Players take turns controlling the one character, a gummy bear roaming across a giant birthday cake. Each player can only control the gummy bear for a few seconds before control switches to the other player. Player 1's goal is to cover the cake in icing, as many squares as they can. Icing will appear on each square the gummy bear walks on while under Player 1's control, and Player 1 gets one point per iced square. Player 2's goal is to steal as many birthday candles as they can, and take them to a candle drop-off zone to score points for them.

Players can jump their existing streams, or go under their previous jumps, to earn more points. The more risks you take, the more you score!

The Crusade of Halvard

Here it is, after months of hard work!

Take command of a team of warriors to kill a demon and his evil minions. Just tell your troops what to prioritise and they'll do the work. You will need the right combination of healers, defenders and attackers, as well as the right orders, to achieve victory.

Created by a team of six programmers, led by me, joining forces with a team of six artists, for the Academy of Interactive Entertainment Melbourne final project.
