Not all of my projects expand into the large works that Legend of the Elements and Learning Pixel Art have become. Sometimes I just write small games, or create custom things for other games, or am just working with seeds of ideas. This page is for those other projects. Some of these have their own pages, while others link directly to the game's PDF.
A Skin for Monsterhearts, the Doppleganger is all about self-loathing, hero worship, and the vicious cycle that those two traits lead to. The Doppleganger can become the very people they idolize, and in doing so discover that they're not a hero: they're just a person like you.
The Ghost (tLBP Version)
A Skin for Monsterhearts. The Ghost is one of the core skins, but it didn't really go about its themes or mechanics in a way I personally found fulfilling, so I redesigned it to suit my needs. This version of the Ghost focuses on how, despite trying to be caring and empathetic, helping people is still a move in the social environment and hierarchy. It uses Conditions in a novel way, and tries to fight the tendency toward passivity and inaction that the original Ghost has difficulty with.
A small game of superheroes! This game fits on the front of one page. I wanted to make a minimalistic superheroes game that could still emulate my favorite things about the genre without all the bloat and focus on specific powers that I see in most supers games. The game has never been playtested, so if you try it let me know how it goes!
This is a game about a succession crisis in the Roman Empire. It fits on the front and back of a single page, and is about desperation, fear, ambition, and petty squabbling and maneuvering in a time when only unity can save the Empire. Though historical, no prior knowledge of Rome necessary! Loosely inspired by Ben Lehman's Amidst Endless Quiet.
TITAN/child (click for full page)
A game about special children piloting an ancient alien colossus, forced to struggle with its mind for dominance of the body as invaders arrive to destroy the earth. Heavily inspired by Neon Genesis Evangelion, but focused on only a single aspect of that series.
