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.


Dexter is an HTML index page generator written in Perl using Mojolicious. It also supports file uploads, directory creation, renaming, and deletion inside of its webapp interface. Dexter speaks CGI and PSGI.

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!
