Jeremy Alessi's Blog   Expert Blogs


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.

David Helgason and Jeremy Alessi chat Inside Hail about indie game development, the Unity Asset Store, and Hail!

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!

A consolidated device might make sense though I would imagine most Nintendo fans have both a Wii U and a 3DS and possibly several 3DS 's. I can 't imagine them trying to compete with iPad unless it becomes a 2 year hardware cycle with a subscription of some sort. ...

This is the best game I 've played in along time. It 's fresh and feels just like the first time you played other brand new Nintendo IP 's. Splatoon does for shooters what Mario Kart did for racers or Smash Bros did for fighters. Initially, you 're taken aback ...

I absolutely love these interviews Iwata does. Nintendo has a sense of engineering and art that is similar to Apple 's but it almost runs in reverse. The art forms around the engineering instead of the engineering forming around the art. The interesting thing about that is Apple 's goal ...

This is what I used to do 5 years ago. Now I juggle dozens, which actually helps. Instead of forcibly trying to make something come together I just take appropriate steps where applicable. My work comes out better and I 'm still busy constantly.

I have joined this nostalgia crowd and we have a couple of these retro shops around which are really cool. Ebay actually seems to be the primary place to acquire the older stuff so I don 't know how much of an impact Gamestop will have. Certainly, it 's a ...
