Skelattack is an action platformer game, where you play a skeleton who is trying to stop the humans raiding his home. I joined Ukuza with the role of game developer. This meant I was given both design and programming tasks. This game got picked up by Konami who published it.

In Rescue Wings you play as a dog who needs to extinguish forest fires. You do this by diving underwater with your plane, to collect water. Then you can use that water to drop water-bombs on the forest fires. For my thesis I researched the ways multiplayer gamemodes could be added, and I prototyped these.
- Designed and implemented Local Multiplayer Gamemodes
- Thouroughly tested and documented the designed gamemodes
- General Switch Port Adjustments

Homewords is a Game Inspired by Earthbound and Ace Attorney. You play as a boy who cannot talk who has to help a 7 year old girl find her parents on an alien planet. Since the boy cannot speak, the girl has to do all the talking for him. However she was raised a bit poorly and tends to run her mouth. So during the game you have to listen closely to what she is saying and interrupt her if she is about to upset someone. I am currently working on this with the help of one artist, who helps me with the character portraits.
Reddit Quest is a user content generated battle game where players can fight Reddit posts. Reddit users can post a picture with a title to Reddit. Then other users can create comments on that picture. The game loads in all the information it needs, and pits you against enemies that are created by the Reddit users. The game below is a proof of concept.
- Loading in external posts through the Reddit.NET framework.
- Parsing data to enemy attacks using regex
- Creating the logic for the reddit autoModerator to enforce a formatting on the Reddit page.
For our course "Automated Game Design" we were tasked to implement A.I. in to a game. We chose to make a simulation in which the player can design a world and after that they no longer have any input. Then the player could see the units interact with the world, and based on the stats of those units they would make smart/stupid decisions. Besides the source I have also included the research paper down below.
- Basic units
- Breeding among units
- Determing unit's next action
Tellingly is an application that has been developed for Wortell. The app is based on the theory that every person
has a preferred communication style. This app uses deep learning to guess your communication style based on a picture of you. The project has shown positive results. Due to the usage of pictures of Wortell employees to train the model, I am not allowed to share a download link.
- Screen Design

Tinochi is a serious game made for Waag Society. This game was made to help motivate pregnant teenage mothers who smoke, to stop smoking. In this app you have to take care of a little creature, a Tinochi. Ever day when you log in, he will ask you questions about your smoking behaviour. Based on your answers he will reward you. One keypoint for this design was positive feedback. People who use this app already know that smoking is bad, else they wouldn't use the app. So we wanted to reward the user for even the smallest of achievements

- Animation controller
- Textbox input
The Other Hero is a small adventure game inspired by "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past".
This was a solo-project that I made in about 2 weeks for my first year course: "Game Basics"

In Parrot Hilton your goal is to get as high as possible by platforming on randomly generated levels. This was my first Project for the University of Applied sciences in Amsterdam. Out of all games made for this project, our game was voted 3rd best by other students. Because of this we got to present this game in the
Tuschinski Cinema in front of the other 700 IT students.

This was our entry for the Global Game Jam of 2019. In this game you play an underage boy who has gotten drunk, and now tries to sneak back in to the house unnoticed. I worked a lot on the art during this Project, however sadly due to poor planning we did not finish this game within the given timeframe.

This was our entry for the Global Game Jam of 2018. In this game 4 players compete with each other in a 2 vs 2 team battle. On each team one player gathers dough, while the other player throws ingredients on it. The game was finished on time, however lacked any good in-game tutorials.

Rhythm Masters is a game where you have to press the right button to the music to score points (Similair to Osu and Guitar Hero).
This game was made for a contest on the Dutch Gamemaker forums. The theme was music and sound. To celebrate my 5 years of developing games at that point, and to save time, I used graphics and music from my previous games.
"Welcome to the Mansion Remastered" is a re-imagining from my first game: "Welcome to the Mansion". It shares the same premise as the original,
however the execution came closer to what I had in mind. I spent around 5 years on this project before announcing the cancelation in 2018.
During these 5 years however, I spent an enormous amount of time polishing this game to the best of my power. And to this day it is still my most polished game.
There is a demo that I released in 2015 which showcases 45 minutes of gameplay.
100 Invasions is a space shooter, like gradius and space invaders, made for a small contest on the Dutch GameMaker forums. The goal was to create a game with a 11 x 16 resolution. It is a fun little game, that gets really difficult as it progresses.
Welcome to the Unknown is the prequel to Welcome to the Mansion. The premise is the same: You are kidnapped together with 4 others, however one of them is the person to orchestrated the entire kidnapping. The game is heavily dialogue based and has horror elements.
In Mister Pig's Quest for Pants you play as the titular hero, Mister Pig, who needs to find a pair of pants to enter a party. On your journey you meet a cast of
weird animals who have you do little tasks for them.
Just an Adventure is a platforming game heavily inspired by Rayman Origins and New Super Mario Bros. I made this game to be an exact contrast of Welcome to the Mansion. I wanted to create a positive game that people could come to to relax.
Welcome to the Mansion is the game where it all really began for me. In this game you play as a boy who got kidnapped together with his 4 friends. However one of those friends is the person who orchestrated the kidnapping. The game is a horror adventure game made for the Creative Game Challenge 2013, a Gamemaker competition held by the University of Utrecht. I won second place in this contest, which was huge for me. Before this, making games was just a past time for me, however this was the point where it became my passion.
Project Tanmute was a game I worked on inbetween 100 invasions and Welcome to the Mansion Remastered. You play as a girl who finds herself in an underground bunker. Your goal is to get out of that bunker, in this 2d survival horror game. The main focus of the game was player freedom, where the player was left completely free to explore the rest of the bunker. Sadly I never got to finishing this project, but I am still very proud of what I put down.
