Smart Sump Pump w/ ESP8266

I spent a couple months in a house with a really humid basement which is not at all good for PLA filament. So I bought a dehumidifier. The dehumidifier had to be emptied twice a day. Ung, that’s robot work! I could buy a sump pump (technically a condensate pump) for around $50 whereas a […]

PC Controlled Arduino Tank

“What the hell is that?” – The Neighbors The title says it all but I’ll expand on it. Over the past 6 months I’ve been further increasing my ability to mix real world and virtual world together. Not through VR/AR/MR but through actual physical devices. (I’ve also ended up doing my share of XR, but […]

Building A 360 VR Tour

We all live near cool places with cool stories right? And sometimes those stories are very physically connected. The history of that lamp on that table isn’t as meaningful in a book, but it’s also maybe not something that everyone on every tour cares about. Enter virtual reality touring. I’m gonna start of with the […]

We Must Go Smaller! (Mini Microcomputers)

This story begins the usual way really, couple of guys making games, submitting said games to cons. Trekking out to said cons with said, said games. But when you’re so small the machine you’re showing with is your personal laptop and main dev machine… there’s some stress involved in going to the bathroom or grabbing […]

Preparing for GDC

Wow , it’s that time of year again when I double check my little webpage about myself that I never post to. My last post was almost exactly a year ago but it feels like three. My life has changed so much from getting Mark of the Old Ones funded, biking to work over the summer, […]

GDC 2014

It’s Friday, the last(official) day of GDC! During the week my boss, Jordan, sent me the latest trailer iteration for Mark of the Old Ones. So, not all of this is ‘official’ footage nor guaranteed to be in the game. I haven’t put a lot of time into my blog since I got hired at […]

Dev-Jam @ Cipher Prime

I’m pumped for tonight’s “Dev Jam” at Cipher Prime. The theme is racing so I think I’m going to PoC an idea that’s been bugging me for a while. What makes it a “Dev Jam” and not a “Game Jam”? A game jam is conceiving and making a game in a set period of time. For the […]

Skype for Windows Phone

So I may or may not have mentioned that I managed to hook up QuadraTron with some Windows Phones back during the Global Game Jam. Long story short on the Windows Phone: I like the OS, and straight out of the box it would beat an Android hands down… BUT the market place is pretty bad […]

New toy!

I have myself a new toy, a Samsung Galaxy Tab. I’m really excited to try making an app for it! Not really sure what to do for an app/game though… Maybe after Too Many Games. I’ll make another post about that later in the weekend.

First Post, and Portfolio taking shape!

Whew, been a crazy semester for me but I finally found a moment to sit down and organize some of this stuff. On my portfolio page I’ve put up some of my old art and a couple of the games I’ve worked on. Now I just need to figure out which programming examples to put […]
