Below is a list of projects I have worked on.

Droplet: States of Matter (Unreal Engine game)

Logo

Coming soon

Droplet: States of Matter is my largest, ongoing project to date having been actively worked on since January 2018. The game is a 3D platformer being created with Unreal Engine 4. It is in beta phase, and it is currently undergoing playtesting and quality of life implementations.

I am the main programmer using Unreal Engine's Blueprint visual scripting language, and I created the majority of assets for this game, including the models, environment, storyline, gameplay, UI and most of the music. Many of the textures originate from Unreal Engine’s starter content pack or the UE4 marketplace.

Dreamwalkers: Sleep Descent was my previous project before starting work on Droplet: States of Matter. Created for the purpose of learning how to use Unreal Engine 4, Dreamwalkers is a JRPG-inspired game featuring story-driven gameplay and a semi real-time battle system. The game is a prototype featuring approximately one hour of content.

I created the vast majority of assets for the game, primarily the Blueprint scripts, the models, environment, storyline, gameplay, UI and most of the music. I received outside assistance with the storyline, some of the music tracks and 2D graphics.

SkyScape - RuneScape in Skyrim (Skyrim mod)

DWSD_logo


SkyScape is a mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that features characters and locations from the MMORPG RuneScape. The project is headed by Brendan "TripleSixes" Ambrose. I used the Creation Kit to design many of the environments for this mod with the majority being islands and interiors. I also played a role in blocking out areas that would get replaced by custom 3D models made by other artists. With the Creation Kit, I also designed other dungeons based on the Dungeoneering skill which were later merged into this mod.

Chef Pierre's Cooking Craziness (Clickteam Fusion game)

Logo





Chef Pierre's Cooking Craziness was a game I created in 2008, and it is one I consider a significant milestone. Most of my other games from before were often made just for fun, but this is the first one I made competitively. I entered this game into the Technology Student Association competition for Electronic Game Design and won first place in the state of Virginia. I was the lead designer of this project.

Droplet and the Prototype Machine (Clickteam Fusion game)

Logo



Droplet and the Prototype Machine (then known as Droplet) was a game I created in 2009, and I consider it one my greatest hits. This game won both first place in the state of Virginia in the Technology Student Association Electronic Game Design competition and first place at the national competition held at Denver, Colorado. I was once again lead designer while Patricia Ast helped with the background graphics.

Krayfish Entertainment (Games Website)

Krayfish Entertainment features over twenty games that I created using Clickteam Fusion 2.5. I exported them to HTML5 so that they can be playable on a browser. The website includes not only my most recent games, but also polished up versions of the games I created from middle school, high school and beyond. Chef Pierre, Droplet and Dreamwalkers can all be found on this website.

Omniverse Nexus (Worldbuilding Community Website)


Logo




I am one the co-founders of the Omniverse Nexus, a MediaWiki-based worldbuilding community website that features four main settings: Galactic Crucibles, a science fiction space opera; Erudite Tales, a high fantasy setting; Infinite Histories, an alternate history, science fiction setting; and lastly Dreamwalkers, a portal fantasy setting. I created the website that hosts the stories and articles, and designed a large part of the lore for Galactic Crucibles and Dreamwalkers.

The Dreamwalkers setting served as the foundation for Dreamwalkers: Sleep Descent.
