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:
- @alxmdev on Twitter for game updates and GIFs
- alxm on Github for source code (mirrored on GitLab and Bitbucket)
- alxm on itch.io for game jam downloads
- email@example.com if you want to say hello
I wrote my first video games for the TI-89 back in 2004, with TI-Basic and later on with C.
A bit later I stumbled on the GP2X. Learned about Linux, cross compilation, the SDL libraries, all that good stuff. In 2007 I wrote a tower defense game that people liked and which shipped on every GP2X Wiz.
These days I focus on Linux and Windows PC with a touch of Arduino.
BONUS: My First Game
Not the first I made, but the first I played. LCD games were everywhere growing up, and most of them were pretty fun. No one really knew we were missing out on the Game Boy. The score just wraps back to 0 after 999 though, real bummer when you finally get there...
