Smelly Cheese Studios' Games

About Smelly Cheese Studios

Smelly Cheese Studios is a one-man studio established by me, Sheppe Pharis, as an entity from which to release my indie games. I have a heavy history in software development for PC, but use Smelly Cheese Studios primarily as an outlet for my mobile development.

The tool I currently use for mobile development is Corona SDK. This excellent platform allows me to quickly prototype and build apps and games for all mobile platforms, and with good documentation and a very helpful community it makes creating games a pleasure.

Most of the assets (images and sounds) I use in my games are free/open source and marked as free for modification and commercial re-use. If I do want some custom work done, I do sometimes hire a gig over at
