Its been a hard month. Life is shifting in a big way right now, many life-changing events are hitting on all cylinders.
First, the big news. About a month ago I resigned my post at Armor Games to take on a new adventure at Kongregate. I will be producing games for Kongregate in San Francisco and will be moving up from Orange County in the next week or so. This is a big change for me, I’ve been producing content for Armor Games for over eight years and have made many friends and colleagues at Armor. Armor Games was an amazing company to work for, full of talented and amazing people. During my time there I produced somewhere around 50-60 games. I am very thankful for the time I had at Armor and leaving was not an easy choice. I am taking up a new role (still making games!) at Kongregate and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future.
That said, I am moving! I’ve lived in Southern California now for a while, but I’m moving back up to Northern California again. They actually get rain so that’s a bit exciting. I’ll miss the warm, sunny beaches and always-awesome weather here. And I’ll miss my friends, but Minecraft servers make it hard to stay too far apart.
Game release! There is a new game out called Loot! The Game. It’s currently available on Armor Games. It features elephant and guns and a trains. Everything you need for an action-packed, gear-whoring game! I hope you enjoy it.
Gee I wonder why the name of this game is “Give Up.” The name of this game should be, “Go F*ck Yourself.” Because that’s whoever made this is saying to every single person that has ever f*cking played it. Go f*ck yourself thanks for playing my game I f*cking hate you and I hope you f*cking die.
Rage Quit, Rooster Teeth
A few weeks ago I launched a small game called Give Up, which is a game that progressively gets more difficult as each level builds upon the other. Its a lot of fun to see the reactions of people playing it, but most notable was a wonderful video put out by Rooster Teeth.
Language warning on this video:
Its stuff like this that makes ass-kicking games so fun to make. While a lot of my games are fairly easy this one we set out to kick your ass on. Tasselfoot is to thank on the epic level design that ultimate has lead to this video (and of course, the premise of the game, which he envisioned on a bus with me in San Francisco and so lovingly let me pursue).
Happy Roo Day! For the past 8 or 9 years we’ve dedicated the website to Roo, probably one of the best guys I know of. He was the best man at my wedding, loves making biscuits, and makes a mean Long Island. Happy Roo Day!
Sorry the website is still not functional. It takes one bad day on the site to really mess things up and I’m stuggling to get the hosting moved. So if you’re missing the site, my apologies. If you randomly stumbled upon my site and its your first time here, sorry nothing is working! We’ll get back online shortly.
I’ve been busy to the point of exhaustion so I am sorry this didn’t arrive on the site sooner; Achievement Unlocked 3 is out on Armor Games! It features a self-important guinea pig, plenty of achievements, and hamster tubes. It’s a whole different animal than the previous two. I hope you enjoy!
