My 2D high-speed action game, The Supernatural Olympics, and my 3D high-speed platform game, George Game 13, are the the two main projects I'm working on. I have abandoned one project that I may start on again a while later in the future. Also included are tutorials for using Gamestudio.

To you, a computer or video game may seem like pressing a bunch of buttons and getting through levels solving puzzles and battling enemies and bosses along the way. There's a lot more to a computer game than meets the eye. Where do you suppose the behaviors come from or even the level? How about the game mechanics such as how jumping, falling, or swimming work? Sometimes, the same key can perform multiple tasks. To make a game, planning, artwork, level design, programming, and testing must be put together to form a full working game. It may seem simple by words, and in some cases it is, but there are even puzzles to solve that are never in the game such as how to fix a particular bug. I have the capabilities of doing all this to some extent.

1 Tips and tricks - From math shortcuts and tricks, and using the computer, to food and drink, and tips to save money, I have tips and tricks to make things easier and better. (note: some documents in here haven't been updated since 2003 (or 2005 for a select few)).

2 Help promote my site - If you like my site, feel free to promote it using the banners I've created. Instructions for using them are given on the page. Caution: These haven't been updated since 2002 (!) and do not apply to my site anymore now....

5 Games index - Games you can make and play using common household objects like dice, paper, and marbles. My games often allow for solo play, but can be multiplayer as well. Caution: These documents haven't been updated in a long time (from 1 to 3 years), but are still generally correct.

6 Stories - a collection of various stories, especially The Legend of the 10 Elemental Masters, The Secret in the Basement, and details of very well-recalled dreams.
