Welcome to Krayfish Entertainment, home to all the games, music and stories by Krayfishkarl. I’ve been creating characters and worlds since the turn of the millennium.

The year 2005 marks the creation of Krayfish Entertainment’s first video game Zackulback Adventures. The present day Krayfish Entertainment website was created on January 5, 2013.

Krayfish Entertainment’s first commercially published work was the video game Droplet: States of Matter, released in early access on March 16, 2021.

About me

My name is Karl “Krayfishkarl” Ast.  I am a hobbyist game designer and music composer. I’ve been making games with Clickteam Fusion since 2005, and I have since expanded to learn Unreal Engine as well as many other programming languages such as C, C++, Java and ARM Assembly. I have earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science.

I served eight years in the United States Army, starting out as a Field Artillery Tactical Data System Specialist, then reclassing as an IT specialist. After I finished my term and became a civilian, I found work as a software engineer.

Since then, I’ve continued to create games and other media in my spare time.

Other works

While Krayfish Entertainment is primarily for all of my personal works, I also host other community projects. They are as follows:

  • Galactic Crucibles – A large-scale sci-fi worldbuilding project that takes place in the Crucible Galaxy.
  • Erudite Tales – Another worldbuilding project set in a medieval fantasy world.
  • TVRS Wiki – The official companion website for the YouTube channel known as The Virtual Reality Show.
