Now, at the time of this writing, Dashkin is 78% funded on Kickstarter. update July 31: we have reached and exceeded our funding ►►

A Kickstart for Bitey

Since we embarked on this quest in November 2010, our BIGGEST step towards a release was taken today. Sean and I launched a Kickstarter campaign for Dashkin! If you don’t already know, Kickstarter is a site through which ordinary folks like you and I can pledge a few dollars to help fund an artistic project. It’s ►►

Dashkin and Music

There’s a good reason I haven’t updated in 2 months. Dashkin has now got a sponsor and I’ve been holding off on making the announcement until contracts are finalised. However, as these things go, we’ve been held up and I won’t be making the official announcement just yet. So rather than stay quiet until I can ►►

Cinematics & Marketing

Work continues on the game and today I released the another sneak peek in the form of a single frame from one in-game cinematic. In this scene Bitey studies a collectable item he picked up in the level. I’m using ToonBoom Animate Pro for the cinematics, then we’ll be embedding them as video into the ►►

Region 2

Time for a game update, huh? March 1 was always going to be a slim deadline so the new expected finish date is some time at the end of this month. Bear in mind that we’ve been full timing this game since November 2010, so we have done a LOT of work and the game ►►

I must put in a good word for Ajar Productions who have created a Flash plug-in called SmartMouth. Even though I use Flash less and less these days, I know what a time-consuming pain it can be to manually synchronise dialogue with animation. If you’re a Flash user, you’ll value anything that saves time, alleviates ►►

Anticipation is building for the upcoming Bitey game. Here’s a few images showing various times of day in one environment (open grasslands). Again, all the art is being done in ToonBoom Animate and then imported into Flash. Currently working on creatures. Estimated overall progress is something like |||————————–| and we are aiming for a March ►►

That Time of Year

It’s been a big year and it’s all but behind us. Looking back I’m a little disappointed that I only worked for other people. I’m lucky to be working on quality assignments with incredible people but my New Year’s resolution will definitely be to prioritise my own projects. After all, that’s why I left a dream ►►

SDCC and EA2D

Alright so here I am back home after a fortnight in the US where I attended my first Comic-Con. I finally met face-to-face and partied with friends from ToonBoom, Ghostbot, Wizards of the Coast, Amplifier, Newgrounds and The Behemoth, all to whom I’m grateful for showing me the town and drinking me under the table. We ►►

Anyone here 17 years old? Today is the 13th of July, the 17th anniversary of my animation career. As a kid I hated school. I hated being a little fella craving acceptance from footballing kids who detested non-footballers. I didn’t want to pretend to like football or cricket, but wanted to be accepted for who ►►

Pilliga

Some of the best scary stories I’ve ever heard have come out of the Pilliga Scrub and this one beats them all. Listen to this terrifying phone call in which an old man tells of his harrowing night, alone in the Pilliga.
