  • Overview
    Introduction

    Streamer of retro & indie games. I love discovering new things that are old, or vice versa.

    About Me

    Most of my streams focus on a main game from my "to-do" list which is several hundred games long and includes many retro and indie titles. By the time I get around to a newer game, it'll probably already be retro.

    Once a week I check out new-ish indie games, playing them until I realize they're terrible or for at least an hour if they're not. Some of these games end up on my to-do list.

    I also do speed runs once a week, although the only game I'm any good at is Ristar.

    My Background

    I'm a game composer, sound designer, and developer. My work has a strong influence from retro and indie titles. I've been gaming since I could hold a controller, and have no plans to stop.

    I first got into Twitch streaming to showcase development during a game jam and show people my audio work, but it was way more fun to play games on stream, so I shifted toward that focus. I figured if I'm going to play games anyway, I may as well share them with others. Interaction with chat is the main reason I stream because I love talking to new people and learning from them.

    My Gaming Goals

    Since I focus on retro and indie games, I hope to share a new experience with a player who otherwise wouldn't find the semi-obscure and/or old games that I play. The modern world is filled with games and sometimes it's hard to pick out the good from the bad. I also hope to discover new perspectives from viewers, new ways to think about gaming that can help in my music composition and game development.

    My Favourite Games

    Ristar is probably my favorite. Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Mega Man X4, Shadow Hearts: Covenant, and Hitman: Blood Money are pretty close behind. I could go on for pages about all the games that I love, but the most important thing to me is a strong experience which piques my interest and makes me feel empowered. I love the discovery of new gameplay, worlds, and ideas that only games can provide through challenges and unlockable content.
