Maze Moves

Maze Moves is a maze game that randomly places a player in one of several starting locations. The player is then challenged to find their way to any exit within a time limit. This is a game built in HTML/CSS/Javascript created for a program that includes many other similar activities. A custom game engine was created for this one that was used in several other games in the program. It has the capability to freely and dynamically add buff and nerf pickups.

Camel Cup's' Mod Garage

Camel Cup's Mod Garage

This activity was built as a companion application to exist alongside the Camel Cup activity. This was a 100% custom-built application that allowed a player to customize a racing camel. That customization was then digitized and stored in a user profile that could be retrieved for the Camel Cup activity to display a customized camel. Later, this was also used in several other activities as a method of sharing a common customized camel in other activities that weren't necessarily racing related.

Mudpie Melee

Mudpie Melee

Another Flash activity, this one uses a custom built game engine for shooting items into 3d space. The activity was part of a larger program that contained dozens of similar activities. The engine itself allowed almost white-label creation of levels and featured extensively reusable components that could be created and configured entirely by designers without programming or coding experience.

Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Corporation Website

Just one of many websites created in my tenure at BFG Communications, this website was one of the first where besides maintaining the website I also performed server maintenance and various server migrations. The website featured a fully customized .NET administration panel that allowed advanced WYSIWYG style editing and generated static HTML pages for website optimization.

Camel Clone

platforms: flash, html
client: RJReynolds
brand: Camel

Many of the applications that I've created over the years have included heavy user customization and creation components that allowed users to create their own and unique versions of something. In this case, that concept was taken a step further and combined both the customizable metrics as well as a matchmaking survey. This survey allowed users to "find their clone" with other users that shared common attributes both physically (as in their customized avatars appeared similar) and mentally (their survey answers matched against an algorithm).
