Here is an introduction to Castaways, one of his cool games:
After a violent storm smashed your ship against some rocks, you, and your fellow survivors wash up on the shore of a hostile land filled with Goblins. Using the limited supplied, scattered across the beach from your ship, you must put together a settlement to keep your people from starving. Building placement is important, and I’m sure people will develop drastically different strategies for where they should be.
At the end you must gather enough supplies to build a ship, and enough supplies for the journey, and to sail away from the island.
Note: Beneath each introduction of the game, there are two links:
An Audiogames link, which takes you to audiogames.net to the forum of the game.
And the second link, which displays the games’s name, is the actual download link.
Go ahead, and download all his games and software. That’s what i did.
And, if you’re stuck, go visit the forums for all the answers.
