About

Welcome to alxm.org, this is where I write and post about my projects. I like drawing silly things, making video games, and learning how technology works. I have a soft spot for DOS games, obscure platforms, and everything 16bit.

Other places where you can find me:

I wrote my first video games for the TI-89 back in 2004, with TI-Basic and C.

A bit later I stumbled on the GP2X. Learned about Linux, cross compilation, the SDL library, all that good stuff. In 2007 I wrote a tower defense game that people liked and which shipped on every GP2X Wiz sold.

These days I focus on Linux and Windows PC with a touch of Arduino.


BONUS: My First Video Game

LCD games were everywhere growing up, and most of them were pretty fun. The score just wraps back to 0 after 999 though, real bummer when you finally get there...
