A group of us teamed up to make a game for 2015’s AdventureJam. It’s a comedy about a girl retracing her steps through a series of bizarre fantasy worlds in search of a few things she dropped. The development team consists of myself (as lead animator and background artist) with fellow adventurers and developers including Jess Morrisette, Gareth Millward, and Troels Pleimert (concept and design), Natalie Juhasz (art), and SQInc co-developers, Akril (programming, art) and Frederik Olsen (music).
It’s free-to-play, so come check it out at GameJolt and leave a review! Hopefully, we can do a special edition soon…
My first novel has been published and is available on Amazon Kindle!
“Ancients’ Royale” follows the story of two brothers running a bar in Halifax, and what happens when their past catches up to them. Their past being, of course, a nine thousand year-old demon sorceress and her angry band of chaos demons. Buildings will collapse, things will explode, bunnies will happen, you might find a spelling error or two – it’s fun and games for the whole family!
I’m already writing the sequel, so hop on over to Amazon and grab your copy for your Kindle device or app. It’s cheap enough. Or if you’re waiting for the movie to come out, go tell all your friends to go buy it so some Hollywood types will get the hint. Or if you’ve simply just been wanting to give me money for anything I’ve ever made, just buy this instead and we’ll call it even. And if you like it, leave a review! And if you don’t like it, at least I have your money!
I’ll updating again on this in the coming months when it hits different platforms, but for now, thanks to everyone who made this book possible! Sequel in the works.
Yesterday, Troels Pleimert assembled the leading crew from SQInc together (myself, Frede, and Akril) to create the commentary for SQInc. Here’s the game in its four-hour time-span while we chat through it. Also includes concept art, and mayhaps, a sneak preview for something else I’m working on…
Sorry this one’s been taking so long! Do I have good excuses? Absolutely. Karaoke, girlfriend, writing a novel, working on Slugterra and dressing like a unicorn are all good excuses. So don’t worry – this one will get out the door eventually. And hopefully, the final cut won’t be 40 minutes long either.
AGS Awards over. Life goes on. Here’s what’s next on the menu.
For the last little while, I’ve been writing a lot more frequently. One of my friends suggested I participate in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and somewhere along those lines, I wrote a full-length novel. But unlike my previous projects, I intend to do the unthinkable: make money off of it.
“Ancients’ Royale” is a mythological action-comedy set in modern-day Halifax. It’s about two brothers (and a tavern full of dysfunctional immortals from all over history) who must put their heads together and figure out how to save the city from an ancient band of demons who are searching for the key to Pandora’s box.
No – there won’t be any Kickstarter involved (not this time). I plan on self-publishing the book through Amazon Kindle where it will be available as a digital download for the low, low price of $2.99. While the book is still undergoing revisions, I plan on a late Spring release, and you can help spread the word by liking my Facebook page and then telling your friends to like my Facebook page as well.
So feel free to ask any questions or provide any suggestions regarding the book because I’d really like to get my first commercial project right, and that starts by listening to you.
