These are games that I've created using Game Maker by Mark Overmars.
Seiklus Released 2003.08.15
This was my first Game Maker project, and it took me about six months to create. You can read about it and download it on this page.
Elu Released 2003.11.07
This isn't exactly a game, but a life simulator. You can watch what happens or take an active role. Inspired by Jph Wacheski's "Seeds."

Johnny's Nightmare Released 2006.02.04
This is another Johnny fan game. I spent about twice as long on it. I'm not sure why I made two of these--I normally dislike using other people's characters.

Works in Progress
This is a joint project with darthlupi. It's a platform game that tries to capture the feeling of flying in dreams and also has exploration, puzzle, and action elements.
We sometimes neglect this project for extended periods of time, but we'll finish it eventually. Here's a very short demo:

In this game, you pilot a ship on a rescue mission in a dream world. This is a pretty large project, and I hope to have it finished in
"I booted up the game and looked at it. It was deeply depressing. 'Think of the game as an old car youíre fixing up in your spare time,' Tomi suggested, urging me to resume work on it. This old car has an engine block thatís rusted solid. I canít even think about how much work lies ahead."

An action/adventure game. But not a normal one. This is on hold for now, but here's a short demo from 2003:
