Hey!

Here's a shortish wall of text for you to climb, where I talk about the stuff I've done.  I assume you didn't come here by accident, so you'd be delighted to know all about my work at EA Sports on SSX, and the titles I've worked on at IUGO Mobile Entertainment, like the Animal Academy series of games, Sunshine Cruise Lines, and the blockbuster hit 'Knights & Dragons' for our partner, GREE Inc.!

I've recently packed up my desk and moved over to DeNA Vancouver, and I'm loving every minute. A studio that rewards creativity and design, check out our games!

Please be sure to check out my story Without You, as well - I worked a long time to craft it to where it's at, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Throw me some feedback, I'll throw you the whip!

Also, see me here at LinkedIn and Check out my portfolio!

My issue is that one of the consistent narratives to Molyneux 's career has been the fact that he seems to run by the mandate 'shoot for the moon you 'll still hit the stars ', which is fine. r n r nHOWEVER, when you 're sharing all your targets ...

Any gripe I have about the lack of AC cable aside, I am genuinely excited. I 've got my launch/Ambassador 3DS, and I am ready for an upgrade. I think next time around, I 'll wait on the first iteration as well. Early adopting has burnt me in the past, ...

The attraction a lot of studios find behind bottomless IAP is when that IAP is spent towards a service rather than a good, or series of goods. r n r nThe overhead ROI on service-based IAP spend v. goods-based IAP spend is exponentially more. Additionally, maintenance on a service-based IAP ...
