Heroes of Umbra
HoU is a 2D multiplayer platformer role-playing game written in Java using libgdx. Multiplayer is possible with kryonet, a library that simplifies much of the server/client socket creation and object serialization. I am responsible for all development and graphics, with some supplemental assets (new equipment, etc) created by the community and a soundtrack generously composed by bXmMusic.

Ambush! combines turn-based tactical gameplay with the randomness of trading card games. In Ambush!, players will utilize various units that are placed on a grid to ambush your opponent's units and gain control of their base to prove who has both better tactics and luck. The game was originally designed as a physical card/board game that evolved into a full on multi-platform video game in development.
