Hello! My name is Tomáš "Frooxius" Mariančík and I love to create stuff! Check out my work! :) Warning: This website is still under construction and content is being filled in.

SightLine (sightlinegame.com)

An award winning game prototype for the Oculus Rift (but works on screen too!) currently in development. SightLine offers an unique world, where things change the moment you look away, placed on board the stellar station HeLiOs. Your task is to make sense of this surreal dream-like world and save the human race from the danger spreading through the universe.

CardMatch 3D (cardmatch3d.com)

The "AAA title" of card matching games! (but actually indie :) ) It has many unique features: Power-Ups and Power-Downs, Customizable game rules, Online Multiplayer, Artificial Intelligence Opponents, 4 different themes and interactive environments and of course, fully in 3D!

DeCalc (decalcgame.com)

DeCalc is a puzzle game that makes math fun! It's like reversed calculator - you get a result and your job is to arrange the buttons so when pressed in given order, you get that result. There are several twists and rules that enrich the puzzles as well.

OverLight (overlightgame.com)

OverLight is an addictive game with an unique concept using glass blocks and laser beams - you break the right blocks, lasers get redirected and intersect, overheat and explode the blocks for which you receive points. You can even chain the explosions into combos, but you must think fast, the clock is ticking! Your goal is old classic: Get as many points as possible.

Early Works

I've been creating games ever since I got my first computer when I was 12. My first attempts were of course very bad and full of awful mistakes, but my early games were a great learning experience - after all, we should learn from our mistakes. Here's a list of my early games (period 2003 to 2008) - at least the ones that survived if you're intersted how I started.
I've made many, many games. Some small, some larger, many of them lost. Two most worth mentioning are DeathFall and Tank X-Q5:

DeathFall Trailer (2008)

Tank X-Q5 (2006, my first 3D)

Video compilation of my early games (2003 - 2008)

World of Comenius

Educational virtual reality metaverse. Can't say much more now, but check out some of the concept videos for interaction (it's in early prototyping stages):

VR Solar System Model

This application shows a simplified model of the solar system with ability to render orbitals based on selected "center", primarily Sun or Earth. This allows to visually show differences between geocentric and heliocentric solar system models as well as the reason why heliocentric model replaced geocentric - the orbitals are much simpler. It was created to accompany a lecture about science.

MusicString (musicstring.solirax.org)

MusicString is a programming language for writing simple tones and music using just a few ASCII characters, allowing easy sharing of such tunes via text-based media like webpages, forums, micro blogging services (e.g. Twitter), IRC chats or Instant Messaging. The goal is to provide a simple way to write music and tunes with as few characters as possible, while keeping the syntax simple and straightforward.

BitSqueeze (Download)

A silly lossy text compression algorithm that throws away the text capitalization information (as well as most special characters) to encode input string in a fewer output string characters. It's not a serious thing, just a fun thing I made one day to prove a point that you can "Write 8 letter word with 7 letters".
