Magic GitFtp

Let's say I have a git repository of a web project, and I'm getting tired of manually copying files onto the FTP-server. So I download a tool called git-ftp. GitFtp allows you to save the FTP-servers host and password info into the repository, and automatically deploy the current commit to that location. But it's still a bit lacking: First of all, I didn't like saving the password (probably in plain-text) in the repository config, and I need multiple different branches to deploy to different locations on the server, and this tool only allows for one directory to be saved. So here comes my own extra utility: Magic GitFtp. It's like a manager-interface for git-ftp. Profiles are encrypted, and the ftp-password is stored in there. It is only configured in the repository while deployment is happening. The profiles then map a specific branch to a location on the server. It uses my own console library to make the UI easy to use and navigate, despite being a console application.

Rankpoll

A very useful website for easily creating polls using a fair voting system.
Visit
Rankpoll is an easy way to create ranked polls for you and your community. There are many problems with traditional first-past-the-post voting. Rankpoll uses a system that solves all of them, by allowing voters to rank their favorite options instead of just choosing one favorite.
To make the system more transparent, you can see how votes were counted to arrive at the final result. However, if you don't care about the details you can simply create your poll, share it with your voters and rest assured that the result is fair and accurate.

Archives of Pandemonium

My interpretation of Borge's "Library of Babel". Here you can browse through a gigantic library of every possible tweet-sized message in existance, presented as a short game experience.
Visit
Library of babel is a short story written by Argentine author Jorge Luis Borges about a universe which is basically just a huge library. In this library, every possible 410-page book exists somewhere.
A guy named Jonathan Basile created the website libraryofbabel.info, which does an extremely good job of staying true to the original short story. On the site, you can choose any of the countless hexagons, choose a wall, a shelf, a book and a page.
What felt really unsatisfactory to me, though, was that fact that you basically just had to input one big text for the hexagon, and then make a tiny insignificant choice at the end.
Here I've made my own version where the user is presented with equal-sized choices at each intersection.

You arrive at a seemingly abandoned dungeon-school where students learn about shield combat. Discover what happened while blocking projectiles throughout.
This game was supposed to be a small game created in one month, but I ended up spending a lot more time on it through that month that I had planned. I was having so much fun writing a story, building a world and composing my own music, something I haven't done for a game before.
I hope you enjoy!

This action-RPG was made for my first-term exam. The constraints of this project included making the game in Windows Forms. We weren't allowed to use any kind of engine, so a large part of the process consisted of building all the engine infrastructure like handling GUI, physics, rendering and so on.
Despite being just a first-term project, the game was nominated for Dania's Game of the Year Award.

Hankyou Cards

A flashcard app aimed at studying Japanese kanji and vocabulary using KanjiDamage. However, custom decks enable users to study anything by adding their own cards.
Visit
I've been studying Japanese for more than half a decade, and in that time, I've created countless small applets and gadgets to assist me in the study of vocabulary and the Chinese Characters used in the Japanese language.
Hankyou Cards is my latest creation. Compared to my previous projects, Hankyou Cards is much more sleek and incorporates efficient spaced repitition, and allows users to create custom decks to memorize anything, not just Japanese.
A card, representing a piece of information the user needs to memorize, is reviewed, and then sleeps for a time before being reviewed again. If it's remembered correctly, it sleeps even longer than before, but if it couldn't be remembered, it will reset and come back more often.

QuizBuzz

Players take turn to count a number, but must substitute certain numbers with a quiz answer.
Play
On Tom Scott's Game On, they showcased a game David Bodycombe had designed called "QuizBuzz". It's like the traditional FizzBuzz, where players take turn to count, and substitute each number that is a multiple of certain numbers with the phrases "Fizz" or "Buzz".
In this variation, the contestants must substitute the numbers by answers to a quiz prompt such as "A President of the United States".
The day before my friends and I went to Nordic Game Jam 2016, I decided to make a game we could play in the car, and this implementation of QuizBuzz was the result.
How to play:
Let a gamemaster hold the device, and enter the amount of players. Each time a player says a number, the gamemaster clicks the device. They can see the prompts, and if a player was supposed to substitute it by a quiz answer. If they get it wrong, let the timer run out. They will automatically be removed from the game, and new factors and quizzes will be chosen.
