I just finished my first iPhone/iPad game, Snack Words. You play head-to-head against other people, racing against the clock to find as many words as you can. I loved other games of this type (Jumbline, Word Warp, etc), but I really wanted to play with other people. Hope you enjoy!
For several months now, my first online game, Parliamentarian, has been in a playable testing phase. Even after months of testing, it's still a little rough around the edges, but our small player base seems to enjoy it. The game could use some more players, though, which is why I turn to Metafilter Projects. Vote on bills, stand in elections, and guide your political party and state to dominance in a Dune-like science fiction setting. After signing up, you will have to wait for your state to hold new elections.
I made this multiplayer bingo game to help you keep your sanity at SXSW (or any other place you find yourself drowning in social media buzzwords). Invite your friends to a game, then click off egregious jargon as you hear it spoken around you. Get five in a row and you "win"! Or lose, depending on how you look at it.
Zoom around the galaxy in a giant farting/vomiting/burping sumo robot, battling (and consuming) vicious space cannibals. It's a daft idea for a Flash game pushed completely over the top with music, animation and a storyline of conflict, betrayal and turbo-charged flatulence. [more inside]

A top down, 3rd person, 3d shooter game coded in one month for the TIGSource "A Game By It's Cover" competition. [more inside]
Somehow, Rob Manuel and I were lucky enough to be entrusted with Graham Linehan's beloved characters, so we've tried to pack the game with references to the show and daft memes. Apologies in advance for the rat song getting stuck in your head...
A nomic I started with some friends. We've only gotten through eight turns, so it's still fairly close to the original ruleset. Runs on phpBB 3.
Every week, I ask the strangers of the internet to submit the title and short description of a video game that doesn't exist. I'll then draw the box art for someone's pretend game and post the results each Saturday. A semi-dorky blend of lulz-y photoshop practice and a heartfelt love for video games.
I'm teaching myself AS3/Flash, and this is my first attempt at a game. It's very simple, and has a combinatoric soundtrack based on nine improvised counterpoint-ish things I recorded yesterday. [more inside]
