artbeat (2013)


Explore the beautiful relationship between sound and color in this immersive musical experience. You play as a glowing orb that collects musical loops that each adds a layer of complexity to the composition. Different colors correspond to individual instruments, and a changing background corresponds to the subtle changes in harmony.

This is my first game with dynamic music, i.e. music that responds to gameplay!

kairos (2012)


Kairos is an innovative puzzle game in which the player is gifted the power to control the forwards and backwards passage of time unique to objects in his or her world. These objects exist in two categories: Manmade and Nature. While advancing time on the manmade structures will cause them to deteriorate and eventually decay, nature will in contrast grow and flourish. Your hands over time will be your power to solve puzzles.

Kairos was a game developed in 48 hours at the 2012 Philly Game Jam and won the Judges’ Choice and Most Innovative awards against 9 other teams. The theme for the Jam was this picture of a rusted merry-go-round amidst an overgrowth of trees, grass, and shrubs.

Genre: puzzle platformer

The game gets more difficult as time goes on and the track fills with more and more copies of you.
