The soundtrack for Heat Signature was primarily made with DSI Tetra, Arturia MiniBrute, Korg Volca Keys, and Korg Gadget. heatsig.com

Innkeep EP is a VST sample of the upcoming soundtrack for the upcoming game Innkeep. Full version of the soundtrack will consist of (at least) 58 minutes of music and is in production right now. innkeepgame.com

UNLIMITED was made using DSI Tetra and Korg Volca Keys, as well software emulations of Minimoog, Oberheim SEM, and Jupiter-8 by Arturia. And of course, Hatsune Miku V3 English.

30 minutes of Synthy Music is a compilation of random or rejected tracks I’ve accumulates over the years. Was made using literally every piece of synth gear I’ve ever had.

The Worst in You is a 12-track old-school-ish power/thrash metal demo album that I essentially wrote 10 years ago but only recently got around to record at least a minimalistic demo of. It’s not going to sound great, yet it’s coming some time 2019.


game design

across zero(2014-now)

Originally it was a turn-based story-driven RPG (very limited world exploration element, think SMT or Persona games). The GDD reached 200k+ words when I decided to make a simplified dungeon crawler out of it. Later, I started working on its actual script (before I only had a detailed story outline). I’m currently writing/organizing the story in HTML and plan to release it here in several chapters (3 or 4) as sort of a text adventure (probably with music but without blackjack or hookers). There is a pretty big chance this is how I’ll end up leaving it. Chapter 1 will be done soon.



A 2D turn-based dungeon crawler RPG I put together using the already existed systems of Across Zero. Didn’t get to finish it mostly due to having scared myself shitless with my own artwork.



2D sidescroller/shmup. Its GDD was 45k+ words but unfortunately the team didn’t quite make it through the early stages of development. If I ever make a sidescroller and/or a shmup, it’ll probably be based on this GDD.

English <–> Russian <–> Japanese. I do those. Yep. (🤙call me🤙)

If you need directions on your way of becoming fluent in English, Russian, or Japanese, don’t hesitate to ask for shortcuts the idiot polyglot who’s been through all possible good and bad language acquisition practices. I’ll be more than happy to answer any of your questions and show you all the tools you’ll ever need to become fluent in any language. Spoiler: they are free and you already have access to them.
