F*ck This Jam Entry (And Beyond Probably) - Calorie Quest!
After a 7-month hiatus I'm gonna work on making a game for the F*ck This Jam. The concept is to make a game in a genre you hate; my chosen genre is "fitness games." I don't particularly hate the genre, I simply haven't found a good one yet, so I'm gonna see...

Song of the Day: "Mama Said Knock You Out" by Five Finger Death Punch (LL Cool J Cover)
Happy Mother's Day! To celebrate, I figured I'd find a Mother's Day related song, and while the song is technically about LL's grandmother, the song is still far more fitting than I ever would have originally imagined. See, James ( L adies L ove Cool J ames...

Popup Dungeon - Papercraft Roguelike Awesomeness - on Kickstarter
I'm not really a patient person. When I buy something, I'm not against spending an extra few bucks to get it in the store instead of waiting for a week to get it in the mail (unless, you know, it only costs a few bucks anyway). This is always the problem wi...

TOEFL Test - iBT Practice Free App
Note: I was unable to try this app out myself, so the below comes only from developer info, the app's page and other online sources. A few years ago, I ran a word-of-the-day game called Million Dollar Words: Daily Edition. It was a lot of fun to put togethe...
