Week 5: Wendel the Lamp

It’s been an exceptionally busy week, so my weekly project is a tiny one. I needed an adjustable lamp for to illuminate some figurines I was painting, so I built one with stuff I had lying around. I call it Wendel. The base and adjustable arm are built from a Tamiya

Week 4: Leaving Seoul

For my fourth weekly project, I’ve done something quite a bit more personal than the previous ones: I’ve written an essay about someone I once loved, and about the two biggest failures of my life.


Turns out absinthe burns with a rather beautiful blue flame. (100mm macro at f/3.2, 1/4s, ISO 800. Don’t try this at home, kids.)

Week 3: Atlas of the Inner Sea

In a couple weeks I’ll be running a Dungeons & Dragons game for a group of my friends, for the first time in many (many) years. I’ve really missed the thrill of creating my own world and guiding a group of unsuspecting suckers intrepid adventurers through it, so, as my third Weekly

Week 2: Save the Tomato

This past week I’ve been learning Unity‘s new UI and its 2D graphics and physics systems, so for my second weekly project, I’ve made a little game with it. It’s incredibly simple and rough, but here it is (click the picture to download; Windows only): I bought all of the art

Phase Shift: Ludum Dare 30 Postmortem

This past weekend’s Ludum Dare game jam was my second (and the third overall game jam I’ve participated in); here’s my entry if you want to play it yourself. My first thought was to take the theme–“Connected Worlds”–literally, and make a game around multiple planets–perhaps a simple 4X game or something based on orbits–but that felt a little too

9V Battery Discharge Experiment

During a break on working on my Ludum Dare 30 entry (which I’ll post about a bit later), I conducted this little experiment: You might want to watch it in HD on Youtube. The changes are subtle! It’s a timelapse through a macro lens of a 9V battery (with the outer

Week 1: μShooter

The Microview is a tiny Arduino-compatible device with a built-in OLED screen. It’s really nifty, and I’ve been looking forward to mine ever since backing the Kickstarter earlier this year. The other day it finally arrived, so as my first weekly project, I’ve made a simple game on it: a minimalist Gradius-style side-scrolling shooter. The source code

One Project a Week

Lately I’ve often found myself sitting at my desk at home, staring at my computer screen, trying to decide between a bunch of different hobby projects I’ve been meaning to pursue and ending up doing nothing. So, I’m going to try something new: every week I’m going to work on a small,
