I am so grateful and elated to be one of the live performers at IndieCade this year. Major thanks to David Javelosa, former Audio Director at Sega of America and Game Industry Specialist for the Yamaha Corporation for the opportunity.
During the set-list, I performed pieces from the Aground soundtrack and some pieces from Deity Quest and Super Happy Fun Block.
I had the great pleasure of being interviewed by Transverse Audio. The interview is short and sweet; five questions with some solid in-depth answers. I give my contrast of what it feels like between beginning, part-time, and full-time composing (Stress, workload, overall, work-life balance, etc.)
A new interview has surfaced about me by the indie game news publisher Cliqust. The journalist, Alyssa Wejebe, asked some very great and different questions, which I always appreciate. She did her homework about me and I truly respect that. If you have been following my career, you’ll know that I divulge a little more about myself and journey into game audio every time.
I am very elated to announce that I will be a panelist with Rachel Presser from Sonic Toad Media and Amanda Kirk, Coordinator of RPI’s digital game hub. Our Panel is called “Your Guide to Games – Adjacent and Alternative Game Careers”.
We will discuss the shortcomings of business development in video game programs, our experiences with doing other jobs to work in the industry as independents, some advice on how to sustain and the reality of getting a job at a studio.
I am pleased to be speaking at ECGC as this will be my first time speaking here and attending. This will be fifth public speaking debut.
I am officially signed on as the composer and sound designer for Reclaim Earth! This started out as a game jam (Low Rez) and I was contacted by Ansity Games to do a couple sounds and tracks. Ansity Games liked my music so much that they decided to move forward with the game and hire me to do more audio for the game.
Reclaim Earth is a FPS set in the near future where aliens have completely taken over and 70% of the human population has been wiped out. You play as a brave citizen to reclaim your planet using clever weaponry and interesting mode mechanics.
We plan to work on this in episodic form and are aiming for a Q4 release. In the meantime, please play the demo here and let us know your thoughts!
The second game is called Electron Flux. I am contracted as the composer and sound designer for this game and it will be released on the Android/Google Market! (Big Hopes for Ouya…if it takes off). Demo projects (Shadow of the Colossus and Tomb Raider Trailers) still in progress but now these new game projects will take priority!
