Today, our scientists are inventing Artificial Intelligence and Lethal Autonomous Weapons (LAWS) simultaneously. This game is about our future if we continue to allow these technologies to be developed and combined together.

Artificial Extinction is unique because it's a Sentry Defense game involving Real Time Strategy elements played from the First Person point of view. The story is very relevant to today's topics of the race to invent Artificial Intelligence, LAWS, AI Murder Policy debate and military's implementing robotics and drones on today's battlefield.

Set in the future, you play a colonist seeking a peaceful planet for your new home. Your mission is to find a safe place on the planet for your family to join you in 9 days. The planet has had terra-forming robots working for decades in preparation for human colonization. But the AI humanity invented has become an enemy and discovered this planet. Are the robots on the planet waiting for you hostile?

You have 9 days to find a safe place on the planet. At the beginning of the day, the ship will drop you off on the planet and then orbit above you where it is safe. You have to setup a miner to collect fuel for the ship but hostile robots will advance towards you. You have Sentry Weapons that you setup around you to provide you protection while the miner is collecting fuel. Once enough fuel is collected, your ship will descend to pick you up and you continue your journey looking for a safer place on the planet.

Artificial Intelligence is making news headlines every day and there is a global tech race to lead its innovation, but are we carefully considering the dangers of what we're inventing? LAWS can independently search and engage targets based on their programming. Giving drones and robots life and death decision making authority is being developed without adequate protections and policies in place.

In the game, the enemy robots continually adapt to your defensive strategies and you have to also adapt to survive. The enemy AI learns, shows creativity, improves their technology and changes their strategy. To be able to survive, you must always stay one step ahead.

This game is about survival, battlefield tactics, strategy, evolving technology and resource management. The story is relevant and important to consider, all played with the immersion of a first person shooter. I hope you enjoy it.

"Blinkbot" is a difficult 2D side-scrolling platformer game. You play as a youthful little robot (named Blinkbot) whose objective is to collect multiple shards of a shattered crystal that once provided eternal energy for his home planet. These shards are scattered around an alien planet, each being defended by a legendary guardian that Blinkbot must defeat.

The core mechanic of the game is the 'blink', which is the ability to teleport a short distance in any of the four cardinal directions (up, down, left, or right). 'Blinking' is the main method of navigating throughout levels, allowing Blinkbot to gain distance, teleport past obstacles, and even kill enemies. The player can only 'blink' once while airborne, but it will be refreshed when landing on the ground. 'Blinking' through an enemy will kill it, refreshing the 'blink' and allowing the player to use it again. This can make for challenging level setups that require the player to precisely chain 'blinks' together through several enemies.

Blood will be Spilled is a narrative spaghetti western 2D hand-drawn action platformer with turn-based combat, taking place in a harsh world inhabited by insects. You follow the story of Jack, a mosquito gunslinger, on his path of revenge. But soon he finds himself neck-deep in the vicious scheme that is more than he bargained for. Back from the dead, heavily outgunned and outnumbered, Jack will need not only the help from a few rather unusual allies, but also his unique set of skills and abilities to even the odds. And most of all shallow graves for all those who would stand in his way. The game is our tribute to the spaghetti western genre, that we love.

Cave of Illusions surrounds a series of events in Looninville, New Hampshire, where an eight-year-old girl vanishes abruptly. Her name was Addie Baker, and strangely enough, she is not the first to disappear in Looninville. For Lesley Jacobson, now a private phenomenon investigator, Addie Baker was her best friend and neighbor growing up. Twenty-eight-years later, Lesley is still haunted by the night Addie disappeared, as she was the only one to witness it, or was she?

Deciding to combine her personal and professional life, Lesley returns to Looninville to close the mystery and move forward in life with her daughter. Lacking to find any concrete evidence or input from the skittish locals, Lesley returns to the one place that appears to be at the center of these strange occurrences, a cave.
