Complete Timeline of My Work


One of my favorite little pleasures is discovering an artist and pouring over their body of work. It's fun to see the little arcs their output takes over time. Often this requires a kind of make-shift archaeological approach, since many artists don't take pains to preserve their old work.

I've been posting stuff on the internet for many years now, and I've built up a significant backlog. I like to think some people may take interest in those little arcs in my work. So here it, as complete a timeline of my oeuvre as I can put together, including a few collaborative efforts.

Obviously I don't stand by all of it now -- the glowing Other M review is a particularly aggravating stain -- but it all speaks to the person I've been, am, and will be.

Psychic Hummingbird Lovers Supernova


Anna and I made a new game! You can play it right here. We released it back on July 13, so now it's finally recorded here for posterity. It's about two cute birds that love each other a whole lot bouncing around the solar system together.

The movement is mouse-based, the first game I've worked on that involves the mouse at all. I coded up the motion mechanic several months earlier, then in just one night Anna helped me work it into a nice little story. I hope you enjoy it!

ZEAL Article on SaGa 2


I wrote a new piece for ZEAL! Well, new when it was published back in April. It's a piece on the classic GameBoy RPG Final Fantasy Legend II, the second game in the SaGa series. It's a beautiful game, and I'm proud to have written about it for a site as valuable as ZEAL.

You can read my piece here.

ZEAL also has sublime works that discuss the first and third SaGa games, both by the site's creator Aevee Bee. ZEAL is a vital resource, and is well worth supporting on Patreon.
