Stuff...but more importantly, Happy Holidays

Hola. It's getting to be Christmas time. Hope you had a nice Chanukah. I know nothing about Kwanzaa, so if you celebrate it or any other tradition this month, good will to you. Anywho, it's time again for what I have dubbed as a mind dum...

I made a game based on Darius! Judge me on it!

So, I made a visual novel for Glorious Trainwrecks' (the Pirate Kart guys) special SPAAAACE themed game jam. Okay, it might not be a game in the traditional sense, but I have absolutely ZERO coding experience. None. So while this migh...

My Greatest Failure

"We constantly have to revisit 'Why would Donkey Kong do this?' or 'Why would this environment be like this?' And then we start thinking: 'We're making a game about a gorilla wearing a tie.'"
-Michael Kelbaugh of Retro Studios on Donkey Kong Country Returns



"I have to say it's kinda scary how much you know about this game."
