I had the pleasure over the last few months to work with Dan Kondratyuk and fellow composer and sound designer Travis W. Hendrix on Dan’s open-source plank puzzle game, Nodulus.
Nodulus is a puzzle game with a clever twist. Based on the mathematical theory behind plank puzzles, consists of a grid of cubes and rods which can be rotated with a swipe. Turn the activated cubes to reach the end cube to win the level.
◉ Original concept – designed and developed by a math lover
◉ 20 increasingly challenging levels that will test your problem solving
◉ Quick and easy level select
◉ Abstract atmosphere with relaxing music
◉ Optimized for touch devices
The game is open source under the MIT licence and is available on GitHub.
My involvement in this project included making most of the game play and user interface sounds (the musical notes for moving rods, whoosh to the level select screen, the victory arpeggio, error sounds etc.)
Over the last few months I’ve been learning how to code and also learning how to incorporate sound effects with audio middleware. This all culminated in a simple game that’s got the rather goofy title “Boaty McBoatface Island Adventure”.
If you haven’t already, then download the game here!

The second installment of Mata Mata focuses on post-independent Singapore in the late 60s to 70s — a time when Singapore underwent great transformation as a new nation. Seen through the eyes of young women police officers, the series continues to explore the trials and tribulations they face in maintaining law and order, and also delves into their lives and personal relationships. Mata Mata is inspired by true events and its historical references will enlighten younger Singaporeans and resonate with pioneers who lived through that exciting era.
