Hi, I'm Charlie, and I'm a programmer that focuses on building video games and related tools.
I've worked for multiple games/software companies, where the products I have worked on have been played by millions of people across the world.
I am currently working as a Senior/Lead Programmer at Wushu Studios on an unannounced project.

The Box was made as part of the 2019 Global Game Jam. The theme of the jam was 'what home means to you'. For this project, we created a series of isometric perspective mini-games, involving a time puzzle, memory puzzle and shoot 'em up.
The Box attempts to capture the imagination of youth, where a simple cardboard box and your imagination could allow you to become an astronaut, a pirate - or live in the wilderness.
Strategic Depth is a tower defence war game, where structures have a realistic line of sight and limited ammunition. The game map presents different terrain challenges to you and your enemies, as they will react and attempt to perform coordinated attacks, retreat and flank your defences. Use the features of the terrain to create the ultimate defence against the incoming invaders.
Ragnar's Sons is an interactive museum experience, where the player can experience the viking history of Ragnar and his sons by navigating and interacting with a 3d world in virtual reality.
