Made for Klik of the Month Klub #48, marking a five month streak of participating in Klik of the Month Klub that ended tragically when I was busy during Klik of the Month Klub #49. This game is entirely mouse controlled. The audio featured is a massively degraded version of Hung Bunny by the Melvins. The audio has also been reversed, with surprisingly little effect.

Piss Christ: The Game(s) (2009)
An Experimental Gameplay Project submission made at age 19. The theme was art game, so I set out to turn the infamous photograph Piss Christ by Andres Serrano (NSFW) into a game and hopefully make fun of it in the process. That was done in three days, so I used the rest of the week to make a sequel set in space. Judges of your score in Piss Christ 2 are, from left to right: Robert Hughes, Etienne Dumont and Sister Wendy Beckett. I felt guilty creating this game and I still feel guilty posting it now. However, nobody’s ever told me they find this offensive. Let me know if you’re offended!

Kocmoca (2008) | Space Invader vs. Pac-Man: The Revengening (2008)
Both made at age 18. Kocmoca and Space Invader vs. Pac-Man: The Revengening are modified example games submitted to the 2008 Teatons Game Contest. Kocmoca was made in collaboration with Liam Bowen. The vast majority of the game was constructed by Liam, who seems mostly interested in breaking gameplay as severely as possible. Space Invader vs. Pac-Man: The Revengening is based on Smarty’s Defender Loop demo.
These two terrible games are the only ones I released in 2008, although I did also contribute some backgrounds to Macarena of the Missing. Years with few releases usually mark times I was working on large projects that were never completed. I might throw some of these unfinished games up here one day.

Eyeball: Trinity of Evil (2006-2007)
Eyeball: Trinity of Evil collects the first three games in the Eyeball series.
Attack of the Killer Eyeball Attacks was made at age 15 for the Teatons Project floppy disk challenge, which involved making a game and leaving it on a floppy disk in public. The Teatons Project was an experimental art movement / cult initiated by Jonny Smeby in 2005 which was responsible for over 2,000 nonsensical cartoons being stuck in public places around the world, among many other questionable achievements.
A sequel, entitled Attack of the Killer Eyeball Returns Strike Back was made at age 16. This game was requested by AaronKI (Duck Fight creator and fellow Teatons participant) as a special Halloween addition to the Teatons website.
The third game in the series, Eyeball 3: Rorschach % Dungeon, was made at age 17 for the Retro Remakes Top-Down 2D Dungeon competition. This entry continues the tradition of terrible titles, but ditches a lot of the intentional cruddiness found in the previous two. In fact, it was decent enough to be featured on the IndieGames.com Weblog (back when it was the Independent Gaming blog), an achievement that made me extremely happy since that was the website I visited pretty much every day to learn of cool new indie games.
