    Software Developer

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    I started developing games a couple of years ago after my teaching contract expired. I have hopes of creating my own company or working on a bigger project. My limited tenure as a developer has involved many game jams (most in less than 72 hours). I have tested development of rpgs, puzzle games, casino games, platformers, idle games, and board games. More recently, I have been creating my own techniques for integrating computer AI that reacts to the player rather than just a simple set path.
