My name is Andrew. I'm an Android engineer by day and a game developer by night. I'm passionate about rapidly creating and testing software in a collaborative and challenging environment.

Notable Projects

Heroes of Umbra

HoU is a 2D multiplayer platformer role-playing game written in Java using libgdx. Multiplayer is possible with kryonet, a library that simplifies much of the server/client socket creation and object serialization. I am responsible for all development and graphics, with some supplemental assets (new equipment, etc) created by the community and a soundtrack generously composed by bXmMusic.

El Matador

El Matador is a collaborative effort between myself, another developer, an artist, and a sound engineer in which we all created the core mechanics for an arcade-style game in a weekend. The workflow consisted of several two-hour iterations in which we picked tasks from a backlog and developed as fast as possible. El Matador is written in Java using the LibGDX framework.
