Note that the scope of the project is denoted by a number of hours worked on that project followed by the total number estimated.  The games towards the end of this list are mostly minigames and comparatively small projects for this or other websites.

PANORAMIC WORLDS 255/320 - A massive series of explorable fantasy worlds in varying styles, created in the Unity 5 game engine.

VIVID MINIGOLF, version 2 180/270 - A miniature golf game in which the graphics are made with scale models.

PRODIGAL 175/175 - Made with my dad for Galilee Games in 2009.  It's a retelling of the Biblical parable of the Prodigal Son.  

WORLD PINBALL 30/130 - A set of pinball tables inspired by different sections of the world.

ISOLA 200/450 - An old adventure game project I'm now looking at restructuring in realtime 3d using the experience gained from Panoramic Worlds.

SPIRAL SKIES 80/110 - Ongoing mini-adventure game set on an alien planet, now aiming for release on Itch.IO, Steam, and my shop on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux) but may not have an HTML5/WebGL version after all, just Windows/Mac/Linux, so forget NewGrounds & Kongregate.
MADE TO ORDER MUSEUM 25/25 - Product just launched on eBay.  It's a realtime 3d modern museum that people can order customized versions of on eBay, and have their own pictures (family photos, etc) inserted into the art frames.  

MINIATURE MULTIVERSE - Precursor to 'Panoramic Worlds', allowing players to explore miniature art worlds in first-person view. It has recently been revived and is in active development.
There was a Kickstarter I launched for this that failed miserably in 2011, but in the end I'm getting it made regardless, over 5 years later. I'm aiming for a release on October 21, 2017 on Itch.IO. Check out this link also:

VORTEX 60/125 - An eerie futuristic mind-bender of a game

TROOP 4: THE ADVENTURE GAME 60/150 - a silly third-person adventure based off of the legendary Houston scout troop.

Traveler's Enigma 160/220 - old, ambitious game project that became vaporware due to the discontinued game engine I was developing it in.

FANGAME PROJECTS 110/145 - some assorted stuff based on a classic adventure game series.

MISSIO DEI: THE GAME 5/5 - a tiny minigame that barely qualifies as anything.

SEQUESTERED SECRETS - A minigame I made for my family a couple years ago.

MINI RACING 15/25 - Top-down racing game concept.  Has charming hand drawn graphics.

ROOM 108 PREVIS project 16/16 - A previz gig I did for a room redesign.  

REDEEMER BUILDING VIRTUAL TOUR 67/290 - a 3d reconstruction of a now dismantled church building I grew up spending a lot of time in. The church members raised a reasonable amount of money in hopes I'd get this one done by early 2018.

CLONETASTROPHE 15/80 - A mini-RTS I'm throwing together based on the old Send in The Clones video series.  I have a promising prototype.

MIND'S EYE 24/24 - A 2007 Flash presentation about mental illnesses made for a college course.

THE LORD OF THE RIGS: THE NATION OF HOUSTON, TEXAS 21/21 - Another Flash presentation during college.

HORNBOSTELIA 15/15 - A warped minigame RPGish thing about a family gone mad. Ended up as a board game and not interactive.

CHURCH PREVIS TOUR 75/75 - A previs job done around 2006, with a 62-room proposed building modeled inside and out in 3d.  It was a ton of work.

WEIRDSCAPE 9/32 - A short experimental platformer on an odd alien world.

HOUSE TREK: VOYAGES 3/12 - A simple scrolling shmup based on another old video series.

SCOUTER STAN & THE CURSE OF THE WERE-LLAMA 1/60 - Not even starting this yet but it's a 'choose your own adventure' type comedy thing.

I'm testing some [limited] ad slots again for the next ten days, from Project Wonderful. Given the increasing quality and quantity of web traffic lately here, might actually be worth doing now. Below this message is a promotion from another website owner, unrelated to my own web network. I'm not responsible for anything on their sites, nor do I personally filter the ads that rotate through the slot, so good, bad, amazing, dumb, hilarious, crazy, questionable or otherwise, so don't credit/blame me for whatever link appears down there. I don't control other peoples' websites. Okay?
