Welcome to my blog!
I am a software engineer/tools developer/game developer in cold and rainy Manchester, UK.
I will post my latest projects and occasional products of hackathons here.

I am quite happy to say, I've been a bit busy lately.
Late in June I started working at Burke & Best in Canterbury, a lovely studio in Kent, working on titles of all sizes and platforms.
It's been very exciting and exhausting but I'm having a great time shifting gears mentally to do game development as a full time job rather than just in my spare time.

Looking forward to taking a trip to Japan soon too
I'm going to see amazing sights, get inspired, and hopefully make some more games!

I felt like making a little mobile game since it has been a while. This is a version of Lights Out I made over the last 2 weekends, I made use of the wonderful open assets of Kenney (known on Reddit in /r/gamedev as Asset Jesus) to create a simple clean look.

If you'd like to try out my totally free android game and see what I've been up to , its available at on Google Play now. Get it on Google Play

Finally, I've decided to polish this as much as possible and get it out there on
It's a one level demo of a SHMUP prototype with a unique capturing mechanic I wanted to try out. See the page for more details.

Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Any bugs, I can address them as they come up :)
