My name is David O'Toole. I am an independent game developer based in the USA, and I work primarily in the Common Lisp programming language. Since 2008 I have worked on many projects for the PC platform. All my games are available for free and are compatible with Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX, and GNU/Linux.

I can be contacted by emailing dto@xelf.me, or on twitter. You may also wish to visit the Lisp Games Wiki and visit #lispgames on Freenode IRC to learn more about writing games in Lisp. I have also written a lisp game engine.

I also sometimes write about games. I wrote a retrospective on home versions of Atari's Centipede, and a review of Final Fantasy XIII.

You can browse and download all my games for free from my page on itch.io, or scroll down here for an author's overview with cool animated GIFs and a blurb about each game.

Enjoy!
