The Wrong Tools for the Right Job

Hi all, This site is meant to document me trying to make games in what could probably be the craziest gamedev choice ever – Microsoft Excel.  Inspired by the likes of Dzikosoft (which hasn’t been updated in forever) and Cary Walkin’s Arena.xlsm, I’ll use this site to post my games and design process.


  1. For the challenge, I guess.  Restrictions breed creativity.  Let’s see how far we can take this.
  2. I also use Excel heavily at work so I’m pretty sure this will allow me to learn some new stuff.

I’ll keep adding games below as I make them. Let’s do this!
