I was invited back for Pirate Jam 2020. It was a crazy time because when we started the trip it was at the rising edge of COVID. In this video, you can see me talk about combining stop motion clay animation with 2D sprite animation game engine technology to animate a Dragon. You can see the final game and makeshift arcade cabinet below.

Babycastles Bank Manhattan’s Deposits Only is a video game built out of a hacked ATM machine for Babycastles gallery. The purpose of the game is to raise money for the gallery. The ATM was hacked to only accept money via a coin and bill slot and not give money out. The high-score screen shows how much money was donated to the gallery. Since its delivery, the game has brought in thousands of dollars in donations.
