Sandbox Zombies (2015 - present)

Sandbox Zombies

Sandbox Zombies is a god game where you can place a variety of units with a variety of powers and weapons and watch them fight to the death.

I built this from the ground up in native Android with OpenGL, then "ported" it to LibGDX and released on iOS.

It has 500,000 downloads on Android with a solid 4.4 rating.

Cellular Automata (2017)

For a class project I created my own variation of cellular automata with JavaScript, initially in 2D and then visualized in 3D with WebGL.
The tile colors are meant to represent things such as forests, fields, wildlife, civilization and such.

Retro (2015)

This was another college homework assignment, created in Processing. For this we had to recreate an asteroids-like game to test our knowledge of vectors. There were some pretty tight restraints on what we had to make gameplay-wise, so I decided to try to have fun with the graphical side of it with shaders.

Deep (2015)

Developed in Processing for a college homework assignment, we had to create a scene with a moving character and had to use a few forms of random number generation. This was my result. I used Perlin noise for the ground and reeds, guassian for the fish and bubbles, and added a simple post processing shader to give a bit of a wavy underwater feel.

Polterspook (2015)

Polterspook preview

Developed in Monogame, Polterspook was a group project for class in which my group and I went above and beyond the requirements to make a solid, fun, polished game.

It's an asymmetrical 4v1 multiplayer game. 4 Players use controllers to control heroes trying to fight their way through an endless haunted house, while a fifth player takes the role of a poltergeist, spawning enemies strategically to thwart the players.

For the level generation, the levels are generated in chunks of pre-determined terrain structures we called "nodes." We made a tool to create those easily:

WarehouseZ 2 (2014)

WarehouseZ 2 preview

Developed in Java with Swing, WarehouseZ 2 is essentially recreation of WarehouseZ, but with vast improvements in graphics, gameplay, and underlying code.

I recommend you also check out Sandbox Zombies, which is essentially the same thing recreated for Android and with many improvements.

Guards (2013)

Guards preview

Guards was a great learning experience and I had a blast creating it. It was the side project where I really started to stretch my legs as a programmer, and I came out of the project much more proficient than when I started. I created an inventory system, implemented really basic A* pathfinding, and created a bunch of cool enemies and weapons. I don't think the final out come was all that impressive in the end, but I'm still proud of the work I put into it and what I learned.

WarehouseZ (2012)

WarehouseZ preview

WarehouseZ is a top-down sandbox god-game in which you can place units such as zombies, humans, werewolves, and witches, and watch them kill eachother.

This was my first ever non-text-based video game. I recommend you try out the two better reimaginings of it: WarehouseZ 2 and Sandbox Zombies.
