I make digital games and interactive art about bodies, relationships, and emotions. At its best, I see play as a utopian project that contains a critique of the present and the seeds of potential futures. My games are directed towards non-traditional game audiences, inviting interaction and play with the goal of challenging players’ preconceptions and experiences more so than their reflexes or logic.

It's about hurting someone who wants it.

It’s also the first game I’ve sold — you can get it for as little as $2 on Gumroad or itch.io.

You can read more about my motivations in making the game in this piece by Patricia Hernandez at Kotaku, and in this interview I did with Leigh Alexander for Gamasutra.

April 2013

I had initially planned on making a dating game where the player took on the role of a sentient (but silent and immobile) gun in a first-person shooter for the Pulse-Pounding Heart-Stopping Dating Sim Jam. I got tired of the idea a few hours in and around 2 AM decided that it was really important that I write a poem about some first dates I’d been on over the past few years. The next day I plugged them into Twine, using Leon Arnott’s replace macro to allow the player to read each piece at their own pace (and end each date earlier than I did, if they so choose), and the result is this.

March 2013

A cephalopod wealth accumulation sim for two players. Maybe it's also about relationships? Mostly broken but kind of fun. An attempt to create a two-player cactus block.

January 2013

You are a magical girl and are there are two hours until the end of the world! Will you be able to rescue your teammates and banish the forces of evil? An interactive fiction/board game inspired by Arkham Horror and childhood memories of Sailor Moon. Title image by Maddox Pratt, additional art by Emily Carroll. Soundtrack: The Gits, Team Dresch, Sleater-Kinney.

There are five endings, but the game is pretty linear and there isn’t much new to do on subsequent playthroughs. If you want to see the other endings, you can use the secret ending select mode.

December 2012

A game I put together in a few hours on New Year’s Eve for friends to play at a party I was unable to attend.
