I am a 30 year old criminal defense attorney. I'm also in a band called FIGHT BACK MOUNTAIN. So far, games I've made include: Trash Planet, Super Maria RPG, and Hellbound.

I am working on , which I am announcing on January 2nd, 2023.

I like:
90s anime, criminal law, bad 80s movies, weird video games.
Dystopia. Mutants. Friends. Lobsters.




How's the development ?

It's coming along! I think I'm about 70-75~ of the way finished with the game. Unfortunately I don't have as much dev time as I'd like, cuz of my job, but I think an early to mid 2024 release is definitely possible.

If Twitter kicks the bucket, might start posting my game design thoughts here or Tumblr

I thought tumblr kicked the bucket too?

I've heard some chatter of gamedev types going back to Tumblr. It's still online but it definitely hard a sharp drop in active users when they banned a certain type of content


Thanks for the review! If I was playing this game today, I would have rated it a 3 out of 5, so I am grateful for the extra half star you gave it. If you liked this one, you should check out my game TRASH PLANET that I put out back in 2020!~


I really appreciate your comment! Thanks for playing and enjoying the game. I'm glad you got something out of it.

As for the things you brought up, I realize that the game is super difficult especially when it comes to currency balancing. This was mostly intentional; I wanted the game to make you the player feel the weight of limited resources that the party has to deal with in Trash Planet. This is also the reason why the issue you brought up in #2 is the way it is: I wanted the game to be more brutal and make you feel those losses more. As for #3, not sure why that would have happened but maybe the cheat code thing messed with the numbers on the Care Package. As for #4 there were actually even fewer hats when the game first came out and I added more in, haha.

Maybe I'll make a sequel one day! I'm definitely going to keep working on games. Thanks again for the comment.

It's been brought to my attention that there's some spelling / syntax errors that I missed in Trash Planet. I'm gonna make the changes and re-upload the game file tomorrow night, so, uh, don't download it until then if you haven't yet!

Even months later I'm still finding spelling errors in Weird and Unfortunate XD Don't worry too much, these things happen

Sometimes all it takes is a fourth of fifth set of eyeballs over the project to find all the spelling errors

The Featured Game Thread

Eh, if you don’t wanna feature it that’s fine.

Please keep in mind that, while I'm on site staff, I don't decide what game to feature. In this matter, I'm but one voice among many in the community. However, I won't make any promises, but, I may decide to out Trash Planet to see if my opinion of the game holds up to the reviews it does have.

Gotcha. Just throwing my name out there, it’s all good. I didn’t really understand how it works. I’ll try and drive some more traffic to the page and maybe get some more reviews.

The Featured Game Thread

I've no particular issue with featuring Moonsong: First Verse. That said, Exile's Journey only had one less vote for GTOY than Moonsong. Could be an alternative consideration?

*Edit: The aforementioned Trash Planet, well, it's currently a highly rated game with two reviews to it's name. I'll note that both Moonsong and Exile's Joruney are both highly-rated too, and have one review to their names. They also happen to have won Misao awards. Maybe this is just me being crazy/weird, but, I think I would be more okay with Trash Planet if it had more, like, four of five reviews under it's belt, and still manage a four-star rating?

Eh, if you don’t wanna feature it that’s fine.

The Featured Game Thread

If y’all haven’t picked a featured game for February yet, I’d like to throw my hat in the ring! Trash Planet has been out for a hot minute now, but I just posted the update in December (bug fixes, more content, etc). I’ve also got flashy new promo art featured on the game page that might look nice on the front page.

If you have a different game in mind that’s cool, but figured I’d throw my name out there if there hasn’t been one selected yet.

2021 Misaos - Thoughts, Ideas, Plans

I'm not sure if someone said this yet, but if it's possible, making the "Nominate" button more prominent and / or more clear might be a good step towards getting nominations. If people are new to the site, they might not know what "Nominate" means, what it does. Also, the button is kinda hidden and nondescript if you don't know what you're looking for.

I think having a "Nominate for Misao Award!" Button in its place might be kinda neat. That's obviously not gonna fix the whole 'lack of nominations' problem, but along with the community changes other people have recommended, it would probably help.


This looks so goddamn good.
