Who did this?

My name is Ryan. I run I help develop SDL. I'm on twitter.

Can I give you money?

You can! I build wild things like multizork for my patrons over at Patreon. If you want to support me, please don't be afraid to throw in a few bucks and see what I do next: Become a Patron!

I also sell a game engine called DragonRuby Game Toolkit, which lets you build 2D games quickly and pleasantly in Ruby. One-time sales and Pro subscriptions help a lot!


I have more questions!

I wrote a deeply technical blog post about multizork here. But you can just hit me up on Twitter if you have more questions!
