The Woodsman

Text Adventure

The Woodsman is a choose your own adventure game in which you are your own worst enemy. You play as both a surly detective and the violent criminal he’s pursuing, swapping control at certain story beats. This means the game has a balancing loop where the better you do in one section, the harder the next one is and the greater chance something might go wrong. You can find it here! Just click download and it should start up.

Here’s some examples of my work. Some of it was done for class projects, some was done on my own, and some are a combination of the two.

Scofflaws

A unique 4-6 player party card game about deception, anonymity, suspicion, and cheating.

The Woodsman

A noir style twine game about a murder. There’s a twist though. You control both the killer and the detective.  While a single playthrough might be quick with 200+ unique screens, 19,000+ words, and 20+ endings there’s a lot of different paths to explore. 

Keep It Together

An abstract puzzle platformer in which you must tear off your limbs to progress. This was a joint project between Max Cronce, Jake O’Neill, and Ethan Chong. Aside from trying out some level design this was also intended to get across a certain tone without using words.
