Who are you? What is this?
I'm Phil and I design web pages and print materials, trade show booths and video games. I write code, write copy, and shoot and edit video. For the past 20 years I've been a web developer, startup grower, and so on. Here are some of the things I'm working on now.

Streaming Video Games
You can catch me streaming games like RimWorld, No Man's Sky, Fire Pro Wrestling, and more on my Twitch channel

Rassler is a retro pro wrestling career simulation RPG, a hybrid of DOS-based management games (remember the publisher Wizard Games of Scotland, or Impressions? That.) and the early NES game design aesthetic. Gameplay focuses on trying to make ends meet and progress up the ladder in the weird world of professional wrestling during the territorial era. It's pay-what-you-can, and it's fine if that's $0. Developing Rassler is something I really enjoy, and I think it's a unique take on a genre of game (and sport) that is criminally under-served in modern times. You got, like, the WWE game every year and that's it. Fire Pro World is a welcome recent addition to that legendary franchise, but I still think there's room in there for a gutsy little indie joint.

Haunted Floating Eye is a "Lair Defense" game where you, a floating eye monster, hoard gold and defend yourself and your posessions from heroes and other interlopers while building a dollhouse-cutaway-style lair of traps and treasures.
