Miscellaneous Pirate Kart V Submissions (2012)
Four Pirate Kart V submissions too questionable for solo posts. The first, Stop Using Your Gut: How to Efficiently Measure ROI was yet another Kickstarter reward based on the suggestion “make a game based on the title of any talk scheduled for GDC”. This time, inspiration was provided by Curtis Onuczko of BioWare Edmonton. The second, Coolmann, is a Choose Your Own Adventure game built in Twine. It was a collaboration with two friends of mine (who may or may not have been inebriated at the time) which was released under the pseudonym ‘Von Lemaggio’.
The third, Pixel Perfect Gaiden, is a fangame of toaster’s Pixel Perfect also inspired by Jory Griffis’ Pixel Perfect 3.5: Fan Mix. It was my first foray into GameMaker HTML5. The fourth, The Negging Wife: Gaiden: The Rhinoceros Poop Adventures is a sprite edit of markp0rter’s The Nagging Wife: The Dog Poop Adventures.

Crudquest VI: Quest for the Sacred Jewel of Manzar (2003)
Finished at age 13, but the vast majority of the game seems to have been made around age 11. After receiving BlitzBasic as a present from my dad at age 10, I went on to make several pseudo text adventures (since that was the only thing I could figure out how to program on my own). Only this one survives. I’m pretty sure I’d never actually played a text adventure at this age, which is probably why this game features a generic fantasy setting and lacks things like verb based commands or using single letter shortcuts for compass directions.
