An inspired safety series

I happened to catch one of a LA Metro’s “Safety begins with you” ads on streaming, and they look very familiar.

See more of the same on YouTube.

I guess someone liked my cartoons.

Boyz from the Dwarf

Join Lister, Rimmer, the Cat, and Kryten aboard the crashed Starbug 1 from the BBC sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf. Complete with bazookoid, Talkie Toaster and grilled space weevil. The red-alert panel even lights up (though going to blue alert does mean changing the bulb).

The hologram Rimmer is made of trans-blue, Kryten the service robot features a groinal-attachment egg whisk and nipple nuts, the evolved Cat is sharply-dressed for piloting the craft, and Lister even has his little beer gut.

Outback Scene

The bushman and his bluey stopped their ute outside a billabong, when a sheila rocked up with her kookaburra for a snag under the gum tree. Reckon old mate in the billabong wants a bite?

The gates on the bushman’s ute flip down so he can tie down the wayward croc and relocate it to a safer habitat. He comes equipped with a stick and shovel, a tucker box with a sanga, tin of VB, and of course… a knife. Just don’t let the dog on the tucker box!

Dr. Hertz Disease Destroyer

In 2018, I led a team of two other developers, a musician, and a graphic artist to create a unique game in under 48 hours as part of Global Game Jam. We were competing against professional game developers, artists, and graduate students, who were producing amazing, professional-grade work over a short time. To stand out, I knew we had to be different.

Our game is based on the (unproven) harmonic resonance theory, and we have only one controller: you mouse’s X-coordinate. The goal is to adjust the frequency of your device to rattle apart the bad cells under your microscope without harming the good ones, and as the levels increase the frequency overlap between the good and bad cells get closer and closer.

The judges liked what they saw, and we were recognized with the “Now Why Didn’t I Think of That?” innovative excellence award.

Play Dr. Hertz Disease Dismantler.
