Hi, I'm oaktal! I also go by Sam. Welcome to my capsule! I'm an amateur game developer on the west coast of the United States. I like writing, worldbuilding, playing Dungeons and Dragons, and I'm a furry.

There's not too much on here at the moment, but there will be soon! In the meantime, feel free to check out my projects or the lists of stuff I enjoy.

My Projects


WORM•HOLE is a little PICO-8 arcade game about trying to survive and destroy asteroids in the orbit of a deadly wormhole.

My dotfiles repository.

I'm quite proud of my *nix dotfiles, which include a simple theming system based on GNU Stow and a language-agnostic modular status bar that I built using lemonbar, shell scripts, and Go.

My capsule at unix.dog.

I've got a few short stories about (mostly) furry characters set in my Dungeons and Dragons world up on my capsule at unix.dog, if you're interested in that sort of thing.

Stuff I Enjoy

Need recommendations for an article to read, a video essay to watch, or a game to play? I'm not sure why my opinion would hold any value for you, but if it does, check out these lists!
