SiIvaGunner: King for Another Day Tournament
Music I Made:
Promo Video Reel:
King for Another Day Tournament was a 2019 multimedia event primarily hosted on the YouTube channel SiIvaGunner, a sequel to 2018's King for a Day Tournament.
It was primarily made up of three components:
• a community participation event focused around an elimination-style popularity competition featuring various figures from video games and popular culture, aesthetically themed around the concept of crossover fighting video games (i.e. Super Smash Bros.)
• an original soundtrack of rearranges and remixes of related source material — a real soundtrack to a fictional crossover fighting game
• a year-long promotional campaign with character reveals, streamed video presentations, in-universe lore, and more
It was an extremely complex affair involving innumerable moving pieces, coordination of hundreds of hobbyist creatives, tons of effort, numerous complications, creative disagreements, and even the tragic loss of one of our team members. I began spearheading the promotional efforts almost immediately after the project announcement, then pivoted into a lead role when the original lead director fled the project. Successfully landing the ship while keeping the team held together and seeing every ounce of our collective creative vision realized is my proudest achievement.

one arrangement music track produced
Music I Made:
I also contributed to the smaller 2018 prequel to the 2019 event. My main contribution was a shooting gallery credits minigame, once again inspired by the Super Smash Bros. series, made in Unity. I'm very proud of the polish on this game, especially for being made in a very short period of time!
I also contributed one music arrangement (of a song from Splatoon 2) and provided the bulk of the announcer voiceover work.
Sonic Time Twisted
music director and lead composer
level concept contributions
This Sonic the Hedgehog fangame by Overbound Game Studio attempts to strike a balance between the styles of Sonic CD and Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Started from scratch 4 total times during its incredible 12 years of on-and-off production, the soundtrack "Dueling Ages" represents 8 years of my musical growth as a composer, arranger, and producer, from amateur to journeyman (and also happens to feature an incredible two-song contribution from the wonderful Andy Tunstall).

Key to Adventure: Episode 1
project lead, co-programmer, music, level design, most but not all of the art
I wanted to make like 10 episodes but this was all I did

Super 3D Portals 6
(someone actually cared enough to speedrun this game multiple different ways... I'm so honored)
various other games that reached varying states of not-completion, between 2006 and 2011 in Flash or Game Maker (representative example), and between 2012 and 2016 in Game Maker, C++, or Unity
5 years of extremely silly contributions to YouTube channel SiIvaGunner — including the infamous "DK Rap (Unused Version)" and co-directing the "Totino's Mania" project — between 2016 and 2020 (now retired from channel management)
three flash cartoon series (20 episodes total between them) made as a teenager between 2005 and 2009 (please don't go digging 'em up for my sake lol)
uhhhhhhhmmmmmm… when I was a little kid, inspired by the characters from Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants books, I drew my own handmade, hand-stapled comics that were mostly about Pokémon and Digimon and even my own knockoff I called "Mega Monsters"
I was born, at some point before that…
