Hi all,

I have had a few people tell me to make a post here. I just never wanted to step on anybody's toes.

I was a biology professor before becoming a game developer. Right now I develop Stencyl games/apps as a full time job. I might be the only full-time Stencyler - at least the only one I have heard about. I have helped out on various projects, been a part of a few collaborative teams, and been a member of design teams writing up game design documents. I've only had two tutoring contracts so far. However, I have made many games and apps for clients:

http://brainathlete.com/ultimate-memory-matching-game/
http://www.stencyl.com/game/play/31518 (I do not know the real link, but they told me I could have it in my arcade)
I also created a shooter similar to Galaga and an Arkanoid brick destroy game for a client - both are under NDA and cannot be displayed until they choose to go public.

Of the list, I think the Obama Llama stands out. It has an integrated database function that works across iOS and Android. It also has a pretty nice scrolling feature for the two text screens.

The Destiny Weekly Checklist is also interesting because it has a weekly timer function to reset all of the data (on the client side). I am pointing out both because they are not games themselves, but rather companion apps to a board game and an MMO, respectively.

Finally, Dead6hot has 50,000 downloads on Steam.

For most of my potential clients, I create demos. My arcade of prototypes can be viewed at: http://www.stencyl.com/users/index/221939. Keep in mind, they are not full games, so do not expect fantastic graphics or even fully functional mechanics for any of them. A few of them are my Ludum Dare entries, made in ~48 hours.

I am available any day of the week. I can do any time as long as I have some prior notice. I am fine with connecting through Skype, google+, teamviewer, trello, making videos, or whatever else your preferred method of contact is.

Let me know if you have any questions. My skype is hakarn1 and my work email is ceosol.feedback@gmail.com.

Bests Regards,
Chuck

Chuck helped me recently with a problem I was having with my code and was able to come up with a couple of suggestion. Friendly and professional.

Thanks Chuck!

I changed status to unavailable. I am currently tutoring two people and working on three games. I will update things when I become available again. Still, feel free to send me a message or email if you need to get in contact.

Things are calming down.

Glass Ceiling Jane has been released:

Dead6shot is almost finished its main development and just waiting to be greenlit:

I have some free time if anybody needs some help or wants me to create a game/app for them.

I updated the first post with a few more game links.

Currently, I am developing a training app for an academy. And I am working with a client from the Stencyl forums. I have been tutoring a student since September. We have a few games together that I hope to publish soon.

Ceosol, i'd like to talk to somebody about realistic ways of publishing, intergrating ads, and monetising the game i'll be publishing very briefly. Steam/kongregate/iOS, google play. I know you have plenty of experiencing with "the last 10%". Do you think we could have a chat?
