New iOS project in the works!

Howard Phillips was the U.S. voice of Nintendo in the 90's, and held the title of Game Master. Besides mastering the NES/SNES era of games, he appeared the in the comic strip "Howard & Nester" in Nintendo Power magazine.

I had the good fortune of working with Howard during my tenure at Microsoft. We worked on a fairly crazy project in the Incubation teams, it focused on merging games & learning on a new tablet computer for 5-7 year olds.

Anyway, I'm back working with Howard again creating the UI artwork for his new iOS venture, "Know It All". Today he launched a kickstarter which features a video of the project. Check it out if you get the chance, super cool!

Fall Activities have commenced...

I've been working on part 3 of my "Designing Environments..." series covering the environment creation process on F.E.A.R. 3. But alas, school has started and I'm teaching three classes this time, so this final update is taking longer than I expected. But check back soon it's coming!

Meanwhile, my first Indie game release on XBox Live Indie Channel (XBLIG) has been holding strong in the #3 best-selling slot. But the competition is fierce! In a marketplace where 7 of the top 10 sellers are block games, I'm not sure how long our little space FPS will stay there... hoping for the best!

I've also recently done the UI design for a secret upcoming iOS title, I will be talking about that once it's public.

Stay tuned...
