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.










'Chicken Story'

This is a small-ish project that I started working on in December as a holiday thing (all the game ideas were Rob's though… he's amazing!) I don't have any plans to polish it up into a fully functioning game, but I had a ton of fun creating it. Maaaybe I'll go back to it one day!

Eheheh you two are so great

NASA’s Most Shocking Image

This image is a 1.5… *BILLION* pixel photograph of the Andromeda Galaxy.

To view the image in all its glory go here.

NASA is the coolest thing that’s ever happened.

alltogetherterrible oh gosh

I zoomed in and I was like “yeah right” while it loaded and then my jaw actually dropped?

holy shit

i mean i knew theoretically what this was supposed to look like, but i didn’t actually expect to see it

but then when i zoomed in, all the noise turned into ACTUAL STARS, that you can see individually

good job, NASA

each one of those dots is a star, and every one of those stars has the potential to have rocky planets orbiting them.

I’m glad to see this on the dash — it was a pointed moment last night. The whole thing here.

In America the most comprehensive and intelligent news is provided by comedians on the Comedy Central channel while those channels purporting to be actual news stations are laughable - yes Faux/Fox News & CNN in particular.? It’s no wonder that American politics is so fucked up.

A Day in the Life of a Troubled Male Antihero (via bbc03isstillhere)

He woke up ambiguously. “Hmm,” he seemed to say as he looked warily around him. Time for another day of swords or drugs or making business, whatever his job was.

(via stayinbedgrowyrhair)

He lit seventeen cigarettes, because who the fuck cared. “I’m a man,” he announced to the room. “I’m a goddamn man and sometimes I have to make the tough decisions that no one asked me to make and my jaw looks like a shovel and I have an important job, so fuck you,” just in case someone was listening.

He picked his daughter up from wherever she had been before he picked her up.

“You look different from before,” he said to her.

“Different how?”

“Like older.”

She nodded. “Oh, yeah. That’s from time.”

He thought about it for a minute. She might be interesting after all. Not like her mother. That bitch. He handed her a cigarette.

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.




I wish my friends would take random pictures of me when we hang out because I’m an arrogant prick and I want more pictures of myself that aren’t selfies.
