Matthew Woelk, EIT

My name is Matthew Woelk. I am a Computer Engineer from Winnipeg, Canada.

Video Games

I make video games! You can find them all at spacewagon.games, but here are some highlights:

Propaganda Llama (now released on steam and itch!) is a one-button timing-puzzle game about spreading propaganda to the llama masses.

Words With Foes: Quest For The Lexinomicon won 5th place in the "overall" category of Ludum Dare 45 (out of 1600 games, world-wide), and 5 of us made it in one long weekend. Progress through a dungeon using your scrabble skills to take down monsters, gaining the letters of their name as ammunition/health.

DJ Hamstarz: Aspiring Mix-Lord was made in one weekend, and is a music-sync'd vertical shooter.

I also talk about games and how to make them on twitter. Come say hi, or join my mailing list!

Board Games

I run a YouTube channel and podcast called Games Explained, where we succinctly explain how to play certain board games, and talk about games in general.

Older Things

My masters thesis project (paper) was related to data visualization using web technologies, and its goal was to make Structural Health Monitoring data easy to work with. Here is a simplified demo (alternative link).

My undergraduate final year design project was building an Artificial Intelligence strategy for a simulated soccer team. Feel free to read the large, detailed report.

I've also written a morphogenesis simulator (alternative link) (paper) for a course in Agent Based Modelling.

I ran a workshop on using git which was recorded as a screencast. It includes a helpful list of commands for using git, with detailed explanations. This was done as part of my duties as the UMSATS satellite team's Team Lead Internal.
