Vaughn Royko Avatar

Hello, I'm Vaughn Royko.

I'm a website designer and developer.

I've also been known to do game development, art, and other cool things. I'm currently calling Medicine Hat, Alberta my home and Bravo Tango my place of employment. I'm pretty crafty when it comes to HTML5, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, jQuery and Wordpress.

I'm probably most notable for Wayward, an HTML5-based survival roguelike, currently in beta.

Well, they are kind of all over the place, depending […]
