working on Avoyd - programming, design, business

I'm programming the game Avoyd using Runtime Compiled C++, a technique I co-developed with industry friends; and enkiTS, my lightweight task scheduler.

An experienced game developer, I was previously Technical Lead of the Game Architecture Initiative at Intel. I've worked in the games industry in roles ranging from the R&D development manager at Crytek to head of studio at Strangelite, as well as lead programmer. An early interest in games development was sidetracked by a doctorate in Physics at Oxford University, and two post-doctoral posts as an academic researcher in experimental nonlinear pattern formation, specializing in fluid mechanics. My fondest childhood memories are of programming games in assembly on the ZX81.

Open Source projects


In the process of developing our game, Avoyd, we create and maintain open-source software for game developers and blog about it on our website. In addition, we advocate indie games and developers using technology independent of commercial engines, and engine agnostic technology for games on @IndieGameTech.

Our hope is that with your support we will be able to dedicate more time to our game and open source work. We would love to open source more of the code we've developed for Avoyd, along with making more videos, articles and content to go alongside these projects. All our open source projects are permissively licenced under zlib. See below a sample of our ongoing work:

Runtime Compiled C++ - RCC++

Runtime-Compiled C++ is a cross platform way to reliably make major changes to your C++ code at runtime and see the results immediately. It's aimed at games development but can be useful in any industry where turnaround times are a bottleneck.
