Update 2: Freedom Fall is now available on Steam</a> for PC and Mac, iTunes, Android and the Ouya
*UPDATE* Oh wow, a DD! <3 I've been so busy working on Freedom Fall, I only noticed today (and on my birthday, too!) Thanks DA!
Since I posted this video, we've been Greenlit on Steam, and are currently working hard on Steam-related features. Thanks so much for your support!
If you're unfamiliar with Freedom Fall, you can also check out the trailer there. If I had to describe the game in one sentence: It's a story-driven platformer where you'll want to be saved from the princess. I'm the creative director, responsible for the art, design, level building and story. It's been a two year journey from creating the prototype to building the game with Stirfire Studios to releasing at PAX Australia earlier this year.
To celebrate, here's a preview of the opening movie I've animated! If we get Greenlit, we'll be able to add this and new content to the game too.

I hope this can explain where I ran off to for pretty much all of November.
Our final project in Intro To Digital Art this semester was stop-motion. My original stop-motion plans fell through, but fortunately our instructor had said we could use any medium we wanted. And so I settled in the end, like a few others in class, on doing a digital animation piece. (And no, the version I turned in had my real name, not my screenname. )
Rhythmic drops of water echo through a subterranean spring, pinging a melody sweet enough to dream to....
