Jeremy Alessi has over 15 years of experience developing video games. He began his career as an indie developing several titles including Aerial Antics, which was published by Garage Games, Scholastic, and Reflexive Entertainment. Aerial Antics was listed as a top 5 physics download in Computer Gaming World, nominated for Sim Game of the Year by Game Tunnel, and featured on the G4 series Cinematech.
After developing PC and Mac based indie games Jeremy moved into the mobile space and created several hit titles for the iPhone including Crash for Cash and Skyline Blade, which have been played by millions. This experience was passed on in the book iPhone 3D Game Programming All in One in which Jeremy walks new developers through the entire process of developing an iPhone game from conception to completion.
Next, Jeremy entered the world of serious games and delivered complete training projects to both the Marine Corps and the Department of Transportation. Jeremy is particularly proud of Virtual Bridge Inspection, which is valuable tool in infrastructure maintenance. The tool trains bridge inspectors how to identify and quantify defects as small as 6 hundredths of an inch on a span of nearly a 1/4 mile. Jeremy presented the VBI project at Unite 2011. In addition Jeremy is a regular freelance contributor for Gamasutra having created the Games Demystified series of articles amongst other things.
Currently, Jeremy is back in the entertainment space with independent studio, Midnight Status. This great team is currently hard at work on Hail.

Twitch, EveryPlay, Kamcord, Mario Kart TV, the list goes on and on with gameplay recording. Nintendo thinks regular Twitch streams and other vanilla gameplay recording options aren't fun. I agree and here's what you can do about it.
Midnight Status recently developed and published a game based on the amazing music of Kishi Bashi. It was the most difficult App Store review process in our 6 year App Store history. Luckily it was just one part of a longer dev story.

Christian Nutt was kind enough to inquire about my GOTY list for 2013. It's probably not what you'd expect from an indie developer but here it is!

Great points but I would argue that a video game lies somewhere between Photoshop only a tool and media such as music or movies. r n r nThat said, it still strikes me that the exposure should be worthwhile enough to a company like Nintendo to just let it go. ...

I love my original day one 3DS. The XL is too big and feels cheap by comparison. Unless they release some killer app I just assume stick with the 3DS until the next major hardware release. r n r nThat said, the unit you describe with the Super Famicom buttons ...

Ramin, r n r nAfter some thought, you 're right. This can make better games. Like any technology though, this could be used for good or bad. You 've got your work cut out to prove the positive case.
