Games I've made

Here are some games and game-esque things I’ve made. Anything released pre-2011 is quite old and no longer supported, but I keep it all here for posterity. Unfortunately, the older stuff will only run on MS Windows.

[Linux]Released: 27 November 2017

The least accessible “game” on this page. This is a Linux VM hosting a community blogging website called Trollcave. The website contains a number of vulnerabilities which can be used in conjunction to root the VM (i.e. get access to the root user and read the file /root/flag.txt).

Recommended tools: VirtualBox, Burpsuite, Netcat
