You find yourself at a barren crossroads of the internet, staring at a forlorn castle tower which sits upon an entirely text-based website. It is designed to mimic multi-user dungeons from ages past. As you make sense of your surroundings, you intuit that you have several options to progress forward.

Hi! My name is Kevin/groggydog (he/him) and I'm primarily known for speedrunning and creating interactive fiction games. I'm a fiendishly curious hobbyist, and one of my favorite things in the world is learning a completely new genre of games or artistic endeavors.

In that light, I decided to compile my primary hobbies under one web umbrella and showcase some of the things I'm most proud of.

I've also got a deep and abiding love of the Final Fantasy franchise. I have happily beaten every mainline Final Fantasy game, and am perhaps too eager to share my thoughts on the games. You can find my cursory opinions on the series here.

This website was written entirely in Notepad and is based on the Multi-User Dungeons (MUDs) I played as a kid that encouraged me to really explore the weird and niche sides of gaming. My personal favorite was the Discworld MUD, based on the works of Terry Prachett, in which I was a Priest of the god Fish, worked for the community newspaper, and had a nice little house.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I started speedrunning games with the Final Fantasy Randomizer in 2019 after watching years' worth of GDQ events. Over time, I tacked on other runs like Final Fantasy 1 (PSP), River City Girls, and more. In early 2021 I finally set my first World Record with the indie game 198X's Full Story run and continued to run games in events like Speedgaming Live and the European Speedrunners' Assembly.

    I most notably ran Chocobo GP as part of Summer Games Done Quick 2022 in Minneapolis, MN.
