Portfolio - Programming Professionally Experienced Programmer (9+ years of experience)

Greetings and salutations, I am Mason Thompsen, an independent contractor with over 9 years of Game Maker Studio programming experience under my belt. I have programmed games, shaders, demos, senior projects, map designers, and assorted other applications. I begin programming what seems like yesterday, but reflecting back it's been all of 9 years. I begin programming in JavaScript at the age of 10 years of age, when my mother introduced me to Khan Academy. I have been programming every year since, with a business opened in 2015, and closed for nearly a year now due to housing issues and a rough patch in my life. But I'm back!

I have worked on Cookie Swirl World, a game which has been downloaded over 1,000,000 times, and is rated 4.6/5 stars. I was hired on by Alex Montgomery (contact is available on the website: Contact | Dyad Games )

Among other things, I worked on the UI, Game Play, Minigames, Visual Effects, GUI, and Menu system for the game.

I have also worked on shaders before:

Dolphin Improved (shadertoy.com) (warning: due to an undetermined bug, the image may differ based on PC specs. The above image was captured using 32GB ram and a Nivida 3080 GPU)

For my final piece of showcase work, I point you to Purity of Blood, a 2D Hack-n-slash which I did intensive graphical and gameplay work on, and have worked on nearly every aspect of, including custom room loading system, map designer, and more.

1. GML
4. Python
5. UnityScript
6. JavaScript
7. Java
8. C Suite (C, C++,C#)
9. Json
11. R

I am capable of networking, shader coding in both HLSL and GLSL, Project Optimization, UI Design, Artificial Intelligence (including advanced pathfinding), Automation, Game Play, Mini Games, Map Design Tools Development (level designers), and a host of other skills. Basically, contact me about it, and I'll let you know if I'm incapable of performing the task :)
