From the Depths
This game was created as part of the Metroidvania Month Game Jam 22 through a collaborative effort between Adrian ‘@d__adee‘ Corpuz, lashman and myself. Adrian contributed the player sprite, lashman the music, while I handled the game design, coding and enemy sprites.
External resources were used for the boss, SFX and the tileset.
Tiny Isaac is a little game prototype I’ve been working on. This project has been my playground for diving into new aspects of game development, particularly delving into procedural generation.
The key question driving Tiny Isaac is this: “What would The Binding of Isaac be like if it were designed for the Game Boy?” It’s a nostalgic take on a classic concept, merging the familiar with a touch of retro charm.
A sequence of unsettling events has cast a shadow of unease over the people of Hatchwell.

It’s worth mentioning that this game was solely developed by @d__adee, and the soundtrack was crafted by yours truly.
During the Godot Wild Jam 44, I took on the challenge of crafting this game and all its components, starting from a blank canvas, and I managed to accomplish it within just 8 hours. The central theme that guided my creative process was “FRAGILE,” and I also successfully incorporated all the sub-themes: “no health bar,” “boss theme intensifies,” and “level menu.”

In the realm of business management, the pursuit of not only maximum profits but also ethical considerations has become increasingly significant. Corruptica seamlessly merges economic simulation with ethical dilemmas. As players navigate the complexities of running a globally operating textile business, they must constantly grapple with the competing interests of stakeholders and make principled decisions.
This game was a collaborative effort involving a team of 7, a pivotal part of my master’s degree journey at the University of Mannheim. Our mission was to create an interactive platform that allows players to experience the ethical implications of their business choices. Throughout the span of a year, we crafted this game from the ground up, immersing ourselves in all facets of game development.

YOGOB!, which stands for “You Only Got One Button!”, was created within a tight 72-hour window using Unity 3D for Ludum Dare 28. This game holds a special place for me since it marked my first-ever game jam participation and the completion of my first game.
I teamed up with Zerano for the development, and the game’s music was composed by Tommy Bulpa. If you’re interested in taking a look at this project, you can find it here: YOGOB. It’s a humble beginning in my game development journey, but it holds great sentimental value.
