My Latest Code

Evolution – Javascript Game

I am working on developing a few games. I found inspiration for game development after reading an article about a game programmer that makes a profit of $100,000 a day.

It is unimaginable how I could use an income similar to this to develop technologies that will improve society. It is also next to impossible to do so in such a competitive game development market. Regardless, it’s worth my time to try.

A large voice, shouting in my head instructs me: “If you build it, money will come!”

A derivative of mikestratton.net has been created, via the Github Organization, Dirty Dog Game Studio.

My Latest Project

CMS by MVC Horse

I have developed my own WordPress!

Using Laravel and some good old fashioned elbow grease with a touch of IQ has resulted in the development of an easier to use WordPress. The eventual goal of this project will be to transform my current company from mikestratton.net to MVC Horse, as my wife and I are going into business together. As co-founders of MVC Horse, my wife will own 51% of the company with my ownership being 49% (yes, she wears the pants in the family).

Interested in a demo of the CMS by MVC Horse? Please call me.
