Hey, all. I just made an itch.io page where you can now play all three of my finished flash games in browser for free in one convenient place. Check them out and enjoy. :)
As an aside to other game devs, itch.io has a fantastic and smooth interface for hosting and distrbuting all sorts of games. So far I highly recommend it.

Reflections from a Hayao Miyazaki fan after hearing of his retirement.

After the class ended I went to the now defunct Kim’s Video on St. Marks and bought the film and watched it again that night. I had never really watched any foreign animation up to this point and as someone who never really loved Pixar, the style and tone of this amazingly beautiful, hand-drawn film made for adults just blew my mind.
