Welcome to alxm.org

I make video games for different systems old and new. These days it's desktop Linux and Windows, and the more obscure Gamebuino META, GP2X and Open Pandora handhelds. Check out @alxmdev for frequent updates, and thanks for visiting!

I wrote an article about building Gamebuino META games with a Makefile from the command line, instead of with the Arduino IDE. This gets you faster builds and more control over your projects.

(Updated Sep 18, 2019 after the big Arduino SAMD update)

Quick update Trap75 0.1.1 saves the hiscore.

Trap75 preview build 0.1.0 is out for Gamebuino META! This is a rewrite of the GP2X game with the same name.

I started a Linux Mint notes page that I'll continue to add to over time.

Neonrattle version 0.9.0 is out for Gamebuino, and you can play it in a browser window too! This update brings:

  • Web version saves the last unlocked level
  • Built with the latest Gamebuino META lib 1.3.1
  • Smoother camera movement
  • Lots of fixes and optimizations
