Memory Shell Game

The old game of "memory" with a twist. Can you keep track of swaps? Try to find the shells which have matching colored "peas". Clear the board to go to the next level.

Hard Choices

There are struggles inherent in the coming together of two sentient species. Why do we always seem to flub the hard choices? Choose your adventure through Tina Connolly's "Hard Choices".

Saber Duel

Saber Duel is a blindfighting game. There are no fancy graphics, no sprites flying around the screen. When you don the training helmet, you will be blind except for the HUD showing hits, misses, and your best streak. This game requires stereo sound!


Ice-9 is a fast-paced color-matching puzzle game; rotate groups of ice clockwise or counter-clockwise to match 3 or more of the same color. New ice forms around the old ice periodically. Keep the ice from spreading past the edge of the board!


Based on the xkcd comic, a mood-lifter for any Tetris afficianado.


Based on the xkcd comic, fun to afflict on any Tetris afficianado.


An art/story/experiment.... "discover your answers"

Cupid's Revenge

Based on Yar's Revenge, this has Cupid, tentacles, and flaming skulls!


For the immature foul-mouth in all of us...or some of us, anyway... the old "remember the pattern" game.

Hate Hate Hate

A somewhat physics-based mouse/particle avoider game

Dodge Cupid

A simple auto-generated maze where you have to avoid multiple cupids following weird sinusoidal paths....


Let your toddler paint your screen with fingers and toes—a screenful of notes and colors will keep them entertained for hours, dragging their attention back if they stray. For iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch!


You may think you've played this game before—but you've never played it like this! Dodging the asteroids with your accelerometer-happy device is just the beginning. TAPPING the asteroids to destroy them has never been more satisfying!

Spot the Hustle

The old game of "memory" with a twist. Can you keep track of swaps? Try to find the shells which have matching colored "peas". Clear the board to go to the next level.

iTunes or Amazon App Store

TumbleDots is a fast-paced match-3 game that uses your iDevice's accelerometer. Tilt the board to line up groups of three or more gems of the same color...sounds simple, but there's a great puzzle challenge made trickier in the motion.

PC/Mac Apps

Detritus is a fast-paced shoot-em-up strongly based on the old classic Asteroids. Replenish your shield with power-ups and gain new weapons. "Cleaners" appear periodically, so watch out! The keyboard controls should be self-explanatory. Written in c++ with SDL, OpenGL, and OpenAL libraries.

Falling Up

Yet another "falling tetronimos". Written in c with GLUT, OpenGL, and OpenAL libraries. Compiled with MingW/gcc on windows, gcc on os x. Haven't had a chance to compile it for linux or *bsd, but the source code's free, so ... feel free.

I am soooo fake pre-loading this image so the navigation doesn't skip while loading the over state.  I know I could use the sliding doors technique to avoid this fate, but I am too lazy.
