 Personal Projects


Bindstone  (C++, SDL, OpenGL)
I have been developing this tug of war mobile game in my spare time over the past 3.5 years with my fiancée, it features a custom game engine built on low level libraries in C++ and target platforms will be iOS, Android, and Windows: http://bindstone.online

Vampirism Beast (Jass/WC3 World Editor) (2007-2009)
Warcraft 3 map (mod) which reached the top 5 most hosted maps when it first came out on Blizzard's western server out of over 10,000 (according to mapgnome.org).  I originally developed this project on my own under the pseudonym M2tM. I created most of the original items and game modes using the scripting language JASS.  After achieving popularity I transitioned support to two other developers so that I could focus on my career and other projects.

Dark Sky Fire (C++, SDL, OpenGL) (2007)
This project started life as a very simple missile command style game and an gathered some popularity on free game sites after I posted it online.  Most of the scores for the older version were very positive hovering around or over 80%.  The highest review scored the game at a 91%.  The game is available on my portfolio: http://MichaelHamilton.com
