About Me

33 year old software developer with 11 years experience. I have experience with dependency injection, n-tier systems and TDD albeit only a few years experience in indie game development. I'm an old-school gamer that would rather play Final Fantasy 1 over Final Fantasy 13 (I got bored of it after 10 minutes).

Project Details

C# RPG engine / framework built with MonoGame. Uses Tiled to edit maps and game objects. Current project is an old-school turn-based side battle RPG like Final Fantasy 2. Other RPGs are welcome and can be built using the framework e.g. action RPG, platform RPG, tactical RPG, etc. My ultimate goal is to create a real-time strategy RPG similar to Baldur's Gate with a scripting engine.
