Hello! I am a computational biophysicist currently working on Fluctuating Finite Element Analysis at the University of Leeds, UK. You can get in touch with me at [email protected]. While you're here, please take a look at my CV and LinkedIn profile!

I’ve been developing games in my spare time for 12 years, and doing it well for at least 2! I would consider myself a game design formalist and am always looking for ways to create interesting and fresh designs. I release all my games for free, so please try one out! My current ongoing project is Lawyer Guy: Defender of Justice.

Tower of Solomon

Tower of Solomon is a free couch multiplayer tower-climbing game for 2-4 players. Build blocks to climb the tower, and try to outlast the other players. If you die, you turn into a screaming skull, so don’t do that. You can also find the game on my itch.io page.

The North Side is the first test area for Lawyer Guy: Defender of Justice, an action-platformer set to be released sometime. I started developing Lawyer Guy in around 2008 as a joke, abandoned it for around 6 years, then started working on it again in late 2014. This article is about┬áthe design and implementation of The North Side – being the first playable area, it took quite a lot of work.
