Trenches VS Promo Art…and a Free iPad??

March 26, 2010

FI-VS

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to post up this bit of promo art I did for the epic new update to Trenches.  As the guys over at TGW put A HUGE amount of work into creating the amazing co-op and vs mode, they wanted to have a new piece of art to promote it, showing the British solider and the German soldier facing off in a true 1 on 1 fashion.  This was great fun!

Also, to go along with the update, they are giving away a free iPad!  If you fancy winning yourself a free iPad, check out the competition over at TGW, as lets face it, getting a free iPad for playing an awesome game is pretty much a no brainer ;)

Enjoy :)

Hey Everyone,

I was contacted by Brian over at Illustration Toolbox recently to see if I’d be interested in doing an interview, which was a rather awesome enquiry as I actually use Illustration Toolbox regularly for illustration inspiration, so I accepted the offer immediatly!!

Take a read:  http://bit.ly/b3msRq

I’ve done quite a few interviews of late, so decided that for this interview to be a little more open and delve deeper into my career history and processes, so hopefully any regular visitors out there will find this an interesting read…and if not, you’ll probably end up yawning and falling asleep ;)

Thanks Illustration Toolbox!

Super Turbo Action Pig trailer live!

March 5, 2010

Yey, I finally launched the Super Turbo Action Pig trailer!  I went the whole hog with this baby and lavishly created it in lovely HD 720p, which is a tad over the top for a game that runs at 480×320, but what the heck, its was a great chance to do some animated cartoon cut scenes in HD :)

If you like the trailer, why not head on over to YouTube and give us a lovely 5 star rating :)

The game is going into submission today, so I’ll keep you posted, and as soon as its launched, you’ll hear about it here first!

Thanks.

Mike

Super Turbo Action Pig is complete!

March 1, 2010

Hey Everyone,

I know most of you have been waiting to hear this quite some time, but Super Turbo Action Pig is now complete!  We had the final testing session last week, which highlighted one last teeny weeny bug, which we can now say is ironed out!  We’re launch ready!  We have a little PR work to do this week, but by the end of this week, the game will be submitted and in the App Store very soon (fingers crossed).

Just before we submit the Pig, we’re going to launch the new site too, which is also complete, so keep your eyes peeled for a site launch alert as its going to be cram packed with cool downloads, screenshots and info.

Finally the Pig is about to fly!

Mike.

Black Tusk Studios

As Microsoft Games Studios were renaming and re-branding their Vancouver based development studio to Black Tusk Studios (to coincide with the development of a brand new Xbox exclusive IP), I was tasked with creating their all new online presence to join the action. Rather exciting!

Project Galaxia

This was an epic project! Branding and interface design for a new futuristic iPhone SciFi MMORPG! As most of you know, I love sci-fi so this was going to rock!!
