PEW PEW PEW!
I've been making games since I was a kid. This is my first attempt at creating an actual portfolio for them. I'm still trying to work out how best to go about that. While I've worked on more games than you can see here, I haven't figured out a way to include them all in a single format. That said, I've been going through my history of game development and have been working on putting the most recent and relevant ones on this page. I've also been adding as many of my games as I can to my Itch.io profile.

- Xibalba Station - A small custom multi-player (1v1) map for Starcraft 2 built with the included Galaxy Editor. Throughout the map, at strategic locations, are hostile creeps. Resources are available in the starting base location as well as in various locations, mostly guarded by hostile creep units.
