Custom Games
For marketing & education

Games can do more than entertain: they can teach, persuade, and sell. I can work with you to build anything from a traffic-boosting web game to a 3D game controller, maze puzzle and ball 3D trade show experience.

Programmed and illustrated for FridgeArt, who supplied characters for the final version.

The Mathematics of Chance: Invented by Sir Francis Galton in the 19th century, the “bean machine” shows how a probability function known as the normal distribution or “bell curve” can predict the likely outcome of a random occurrence—such as falling beans.

This same educational 3D game could be deployed to iPad, iPhone, Android and Windows Phone as a free app download.
