** He has in fact used pen names for most competition games since ''I-0'', including ''1981'', a short game featuring a [[Main/VillainProtagonist stalker protagonist]] submitted to [=SmoochieComp=] (a competition for ''romantic games''), which led to one review starting "Adam Cadre, [[Main/SignatureStyle is that you]]? If it's not, I'll eat my hat."

* StepOneEscape: Played with in ''Lock & Key'': You start in a prison cell, and can't continue until you've figured out how to escape. When you do, it turns out you're a security expert who's been hired to test the prison's security, and the rest of the game is about making it properly escape-proof.

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: In ''Lock and Key'', after the "hero" leaves his companion to be eaten by piranhas.
-->'''Tyrak:''' I see Boldo's an [[UsefulNotes/{{Objectivism}} Objectivist]].

Added DiffLines:

* WhamLine: In ''9:05'', [[spoiler:"Who the hell are you?"]]

Added DiffLines:

* HitchhikersLeg: In ''I-0'', a sketchy guy will pull over and offer you a lift if you actively try to hitchhike but he'll also do so automatically at random intervals if you're not wearing a shirt (or not wearing pants).

Added DiffLines:

* DiscoveringYourOwnDeadBody: In ''Shrapnel'', the player can die repeatedly and find the resulting corpses. This is because [[spoiler:you're stuck in a TimeCrash caused by the accidental destruction of a time machine. Those bodies are technically from deaths that occurred in alternate timelines.]]

* TrialAndErrorGameplay: ''Varicella'' and ''Lock and Key''. Since both require engineering a specific set of interlocking circumstances to achieve the desired goal (eliminating all your rivals in the former, assembling an inescapable deathtrap in the latter), winning on the first playthrough (or the second, or the third, etc.) is next to impossible: you need to figure out how the different moving parts (literal or figurative) interact before you can hope to win.

''Varicella'' lampshades this in one of the endings, where a villain points out that not everyone has had the chance to try things over and over again until they find what works.


His conventional fiction output consists of several short stories and one novel, the dark high school comedy ''Literature/ReadyOkay''. His WebComics (hosted on his website) are ''Academy X'', a deconstruction of the ScienceHero set at an academy for [[OmnidisciplinaryScientist Omnidisciplinary Scientists]], and ''Evil Creatures'', a continuation of the plot from ''Academy X''. Additionally, he has also been part of two amateur rock bands, paints, blogs, and runs the annual LyttleLyttonContest (which challenges readers to submit horrible made-up novel opening lines). He's something of a modern RenaissanceMan.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Lock and Key'' is a mild example; while the protagonist is purely mercenary, the entire point of the game is to construct an inescapable deathtrap for a Conan the Barbarian-type adventurer at the behest of a tyrannical king.
