At any given moment, I’m probably working on a number of different solo and collaborative side-projects. I’m a member of a group of developers called Plus Ultra, making weird comedy games at plusultra.ninja. You can also find some of my stuff on itch.io.
My biggest long-term personal project is Six Months, a novel-length choose-your-own-adventure game where you play a sweaty nervous plutocrat who’s trying to solve his wizard brother’s murder. You can find the demo here and my posts about it here.

A demo of Six Months, the long game I’ve been working on and writing about on this blog since 2014
The Galactic Snub — a submission to the Fermi Paradox Jam. About pestering alien ambassadors at a cocktail party.
Words Must Die — a submission to the Pippin Barr “Game Idea” Jam. A game where you shoot a gun to select choices in a hypertext game, but then the choices fly across the room, and also the story is about being in a gunfight, so also you have an imaginary narrative gun in the story also, and– well, go check it out.
The Brigand’s Story — I made this story/game for Halloween 2016. It is a short interactive experience based on a cyclical story that my friends and I used to chant in grade school.
Frog Fractions 2/Glittermitten Grove — I wrote the SPAXRIS sections of this game!
Slaughtertrain Draft One — a submission to the GameJolt Adventurejam. It won #16 overall out of 86 games and was ranked #7 for “most funny”. (And #11 for “most charming,” whatever the hell that means.)
Corgi Summer School: Supreme Court Edition — a submission to the Corgi Jam. A silly joke game written in reaction to the pair of landmark Supreme Court cases decided during the week before the jam.
Slaughtertrain — the updated version of Slaughtertrain! 102 train cars, art, music, sound effects. A big game. Biggest game I’ve ever worked on outside work.
Monstr for LD33 — the first Ludum Dare jam I ever did. Plus Ultra teamed up again to crank out a dating website for monsters. The game itself is here, but check out our LD submission page, too. And read more here.
Meeting Strangers in the Street — an essay I wrote that ended up front page on Hacker News. People seemed to like it a lot. It’s about the few months I spent in the Bay Area playing Ingress like an obsessive immediately before I moved to Los Angeles.
Verified Facts — a conspiracy-theory generator. Containing over 10,000 words of content, this program is capable of producing long and rambly accusations about a large number of topics, including me. Read more here.
