Game Maker

I spent a lot of my free time from age 12 to age 18 designing games in Game Maker. Most of them are not available online anymore, but here's a game I made for a Game Jam at RPI in September 2013. Game Jams are competitions in which you have 24 hours to design a game based on a theme. I designed "Boxsmith" on my own, and it won the "Most Polished Game" category as judged by representatives from Vicarious Visions.

Chip's Challenge

I am a fan of the rhythm game series Dance Dance Revolution and related sorts of games: In the Groove, Stepmania, Pump It Up. I have a pack of thirty songs for which I've designed stepcharts, compatible with Stepmania, titled Apackalypse.
