New Game Released: Snow Day

Friday, August 31st, 2012

I'm happy to announce the release of a new game: Snow Day! This game was my entry into the latest contest from MochiMedia. The contest theme was "too cool for school" and had a rule that game control was to be restricted to a single input device. I found out about the contest a bit late and had less than a week to get my game done. All things considered, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

The game itself consists of four casual, winter-themed minigames. The premise is pretty simple: school is cancelled due to snowfall and so the neighborhood kids get together for a day of fun! By going the minigame route I was able to really capitalize on the single input device rule and offer smaller, but different experiences in terms of gameplay. Also, the quick games and leaderboards encourage players to compete for higher scores without demanding a huge time investment.

Try the game now at Newgrounds!


A Better Work Week

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

I had a great time today at Barcamp Orlando! I saw quite a few interesting and funny talks and was able to grab a speaking slot for my presentation on working a more efficient 4 day, 32 hour work week. It seemed to go over really well; there were some great questions and feedback from the audience.

I've put the presentation online if you want to look over the slides. However, I'm not sure you'll get much out of them without the talk to give some context. They were more or less just shorthand notes so I could remember what to talk about next.
