My Bio
I'm an indie game developer, working on a strategy game with mechs. Check out my tumblr link below for cool stuff like videos of the project. :)

Previously I worked at Firaxis on XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and at Blizzard on their Next-Gen MMO project.

I love mechs!

Indie game project underway!

Indie game project underway!

Hey there folks! So for once, the reason I haven't posted anything in a while is because I've actually been powering through a lot of programming. Yes indeed, I've been getting the basic functionality working for a game project of my very own. It's a strategy/tactics game very much in the spirit of PC classics like X-COM and Jagged Alliance, more the latter than the former. It's also about mechs! YES! Anyway, I have a blog that I'll be updating to show off all development-related stuff (not just art assets) you can check out if you're interested: http://toasticusprime.tumblr.com/ Now that I've finally gotten a good chunk of basic function

New mech! I'm on Twitter!

New mech! I'm on Twitter!

So I've been watching Penny Arcade's Strip Search (a webcomic artist competition haha), and it's given me the kick in the pants to actually get back into making 2D personal work in my spare time. Got a new bit of mech art up now for the first time in ages, and I'm going to try to keep this going. There's a ton I could improve in that picture still, but I want to start working a lot faster and not risk losing interest by overdoing anything. For the next one I think I'll try doing a more interesting pose and composition, probably using a mech I've already made instead of improvising. We'll see how it goes! Oh, and I'm on Twitter now!

Blizzard!

Blizzard!

Just accepted a job offer to join a small boutique studio in CA called Blizzard Entertainment. You might have heard of them from games like The Lost Vikings and Blackthorne. Should be fun!
