Ludum Dare 25
This weekend I took part in the Ludum Dare game jam competition. The competition challenges solo developers to create a game from scratch in 48hrs based on a theme. The theme for this Ludum Dare was Shapeshift.
My entry, called Freeform, is a simple arcade game based on big-way skydiving. The idea of the game is to shift your skydivers into different formations in order to score points. It was made in Unity, with graphics assets created in Blender and Photoshop, and Audio assets made with Ableton Live and Audacity. This was my first time taking part in Ludum Dare, and although I ran out of time to implement all of the features I wanted, I'm still happy that I managed to get playable game finished. It was a really fun experience, and I hope to take part in future competitions.

Crossfire Launches on Android
I've just released my new game for Android! It's a fun little arcade shooting game with a 2-player local coop mode.
This is the first game I've released as a solo developer. Almost all of the assets for the game were made from scratch by myself including graphics, music, sound effects, and scripts. It was made using the Unity3D engine, with graphics assets created in Blender and Photoshop, and Audio assets made with Ableton Live and Audacity. Total production time was around 2 months.
It's available for download now on the Google Play store!
