Rings of Orbis
The Rings of Orbis was the first game ever created for a Young Adult Novel. PJ designed the game, all of the item art and even coded large portions of it. It was a home grown effort that still has loyal players after 10 years of play. The game was featured on the cover of the New York Times, and received many accolades from educators who used the game to attract reluctant readers.
