Amygdala is a platforming action-adventure game in which a disembodied head ventures forth into a mystical world of treacherous obstacles, cunning traps and dastardly enemies to confront the wizard that stole his body.

The game is built for desktop and Android using LibGDX, Box2d and a modified version of Box2dLights for display at the Indie Games Room at Avcon 2013. I roped Sam Entropy(Sam Morris) and Blackwoolholiday(Emily McAllan) to help me with the code and art respectively. It features a large menagerie of enemies and dynamically generated levels with multiple themes. My role as project instigator was to head the design and implementation of the game’s core mechanics and play style and it’s various mobs. The game received an hugely positive reaction on début at the Indie Games Room and launched on October 17 2014 on Windows, Mac and Linux.

Love Nature’s symmetry - Camellia japonica (the Japanese camellia) is one of the best known species of the genus Camellia. Sometimes called the Rose of winter

I was like “one of the best known species”? How do they determine that? Is there an objective scale of which flowers are better than others? Do they make the flowers have flower battles for supremacy?

And then I realised you mean lost of people know and recognise it.

THIS CROW FUCKING UNDERSTANDS WATER DISPLACEMENT. WHY THE FUCK DO I HAVE TO BE TOLD EVERY YEAR BY A TEACHER HOW WATER DISPLACEMENT WORKS. DO THEY THINK I’M LESS INTELLIGENT THAN A FUCKING CROW? FUCKING DONE.

Crows discovered the principle of displacement in the third century BC, when the philosopher Awkimedes, upon noticing the level of his bird bath rose in proportion with the amount of his body that was submerged, reportedly exclaimed “EURECAW!” and flew through the streets of Athens shouting his discovery.

So I’m babysitting my little cousins for the weekend while their parents are away on some romantic thing and I just put the littlest one to bed (she’s 4) and she asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up so I said I wanted to help people feel good about themselves then I asked her what she wanted to be and in the tiniest, softest voice ever she said a caterpillar
