I’m working on a new game with my buddies at Puuba, The Weaponographist. The Weaponographist is a high-speed, dangerous dungeon-crawler starring Doug McGrave; famous demon hunting bad boy for hire. For refusing to help a poor town plagued by demons, you are immediately- and deservedly- cursed.
I’m incredibly excited to be working with such a talented team on this project. Stay tuned for more information, and check out this sweet announcement trailer.

Whispering Willows has been nominated as a finalist for Game Connection Europe. Game studios from around the world are attending and competing in front of judges from companies like Sony, Rovio, Activision Blizzard, Microsoft, and Namco Bandai.

We can hardly wait!
Animax worked with HelpsGood to create the first Smokey Bear Book App, “Smokey Bear and the Campfire Kids”. This is the first of a planned four-book series featuring Smokey Bear and his enduring “Only You Can Prevent Wildfires” message. The book app can be read on one’s own or have Smokey himself narrate the story.
Animax worked with Georgia Aquarium to create Sea Turtle Quest, an interactive touch screen game that is displayed in the sea turtle section of their aquarium. Answer trivia questions about sea turtles to help your baby turtle avoid obstacles and make it to the sea safely.
“It was great to work with Animax on such a cool project.” – Jerry Harris, Sr. Director Exhibits, Georgia Aquarium
Casual Connect was an incredible success. Leif Dahl, Angel Wylie, and Scott Chalmers, and I attended to showcase Whispering Willows. On day 1, I spoke to attendees about the game’s development in a talk titled “Whispering Willows: Funded with Passion.”
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back in action and we helped turtle-power their mobile game app with design assistance. Animax created interface elements used to navigate the game and chart game play progress. Read about the game on IGN.
