We make games and things

Terrarium is a one-person studio creating games and interactive art. Here you’ll find the games we make, the tools we use, and the ideas we learn along the way.

This site started as I found there are tons of great tools and quality resources for creating games, but not a great way to find or navigate those materials. In addition, for those just getting started in games, there is just so much to learn. There a broad range of skills and knowledge required, and limitless possibilities. It’s a lot to take in.

Here you’ll find tools and resources that have been helpful. Start with basic guidelines because making games gets complex quickly. Projects will start small and can grow into something greater.

Why games?

Games are flexible, expressive, dynamic, and engaging. Games give us unlimited opportunities for combinations of music, art, animation, interactivity, narrative, and so much more. A game can tell compelling stories and share new ideas. Or it can simply be fun and playful. It can be for you, or it can be for your friends.

Most importantly, you make your world and share it.
