Here are some projects that I have worked on in the past. Some of them are available for download!
Falcon Five's XNA Platformer Engine (in progress!)
This is the third video I have made of my platforming engine in C++. It has actually since this video been ported to XNA C# for Windows PC and Xbox 360, and many enhancements have been made... I need to create a new video to detail progress since the port.

Chapman Satellites Outdoor Advertisement
This is a promotional advertisement that runs on a loop outside of my job. I created it using the fantastic free OpenOffice.org, recorded it using the similarly fantastic (but not free) FRAPS video recorder, and burned it onto a looping DVD. It plays on a big screen television that we have set up to point outside through a large window at night. It is quite noticeable from the street outside our storefront!
Dinosaur Island II
This is my first platforming game. It was made in C++ with Allegro. It has three levels and plays similar to the old school Megaman games for the NES. Click this link to download. Read the readme before trying it out to see the controls and other information.
Zombie's Game of Life
This is a recreation of Conway's Game of Life using C++ and Allegro. Click this link to download. Read the readme before trying it out to see the controls and other information.
As you can see, this is a more graphical route to the more common block versions of Conway's Game of Life. I thought it would be more fun with zombies.
Final Fantasy Overworld Demonstration
This is a clone of the style of overworld exploration found in RPGs such as Final Fantasy made in C++ and Allegro. Click this link to download. Read the readme before trying it out to see the controls and other information.
This is the first game I've ever made with C++ and Allegro. Me and a friend made it-- it's a very simple, very short, graphical text adventure. The video above this shows how to beat the game. Click this link to download. Read the readme before trying it out to see the controls and other information. I did not make the graphics for this game.
Disclaimer: Try these games out at your own risk! I claim no responsibility for any problems you experience with your computer after trying these games out.
These games require Windows, but will probably work in Linux under Wine.
