Azurelore Korrigan (she/her or they/them/themself)

The administrator to this site and a Game-Maker author dating back to 1992, Korrigan is credited under various personal and organizational names including Aderack, A-J Games, and Don'Pan Software.

Of those labels, the most prolific and likely familiar to Game-Maker users was A-J Games, a name derived from Korrigan's first game, A-J's Quest—itself a spin-off from a comic strip titled Andrew-Jonathan. Under the A-J Games label, Korrigan produced several games under contract for the 1994 CD-ROM release of Game-Maker 3.0.

From the 2010s, Korrigan developed a run of (as-yet largely unfinished) games, largely meant to explore advanced uses of the engine. The intended label for these games, upon completion, is Ghost Purple.

Other labels served to compartmentalize games with less of a personal attachment to Korrigan, Don'Pan focusing on pastiche of other developers' properties or games produced on request from friends and acquaintances, and Janet L. Groth obscuring ventures into lewd satire.

The following is a rough approximation of original release order, based on file metadata, credited dates, and a hazy recollection. To further muddy the water, projects often overlapped, or were put aside then resumed at a later date—and many games were later revised.

Most games were uploaded as shareware demos onto local Maine bulletin boards; from there they made their way around the BBS circuit and onto occasional shovelware CDs. A half a dozen games were specifically designed for the Game-Maker 3.0 CD, and several more were also included either as shareware or as demo gameware.

Sample versions of Game-Maker 3.0, packaged for BBS distribution, include Peach, Crullo, Zark, and Patchwork Heart as their sole gameware. RSD also produced a demo game incorporating an interactive slideshow (and the bulk of Sheldon Chase's Woman Warrior and the Outer Limits) into the first level of Peach the Lobster. An earlier demo contains A-J's Quest, version 2.0.
