Portfolio: Richard C. Shaffer

Welcome to the public Portfolio page for Richard C. Shaffer.  Here you will find several (not all) of my published writing pieces, or at least samples therein.  Some are short stories, some are closer to novel-length, some are non-fiction, and many are games I have been a part of.

If you see this and would like to hire me, feel free to use the form on the right side to send me a message or contact me on Facebook, Twitter, or even LinkedIn.  If you would like to hire me for an ungodly sum of money, then please continue to stay off your meds until some manner of contract is signed, thanks.

In Over Their Heads (Available for Free); first game in the Schroeder Detective Agency series.  Charming young detective Roy Schroeder is hired by creepy Mrs. Jefferson to find her late husband’s supposedly magical book.  Roy gathers his two assistants – the shy bookworm researcher, Angie, and the femme fatale enforcer, Vonnie, to track the book down and recover it.  But when they bring it to Mrs. Jefferson will they find out the hard the way that they’ve gotten…In Over Their Heads?  Check out a Let’s Play of the game by Jupiter Hadley, here!

Dynasty Heroes (Available for Free); do you like games like Dynasty Warriors, Dynasty Tactics, Sango Fighter, and Tiger Knight?  Do you like the stories of the Three Kingdoms Era of China?  Do you think the only thing that could make them better is if they were in a strangely convoluted Tournament Arc if a parodic universe?  Then you have some seriously niche desires, my friend.  But lucky for you Dynasty Heroes fits just that strange mold.  Available for free on GameJolt where it has surprisingly high scores!

It Always Follows (Available for Free); you get off the bus and are heading home from work. Tired from working such a late shift all you want to do is get home. But wait a moment!
