Antipole - Indie Game Released Today

Originally uploaded by HazeStudiosGames
It took years of work, but I'm now on the Xbox 360. This retro style platformer is now available on the Xbox Indie Channel as of January 21st, 2011. It was a long road, but we made a great game, that has lots of content for your points.

I was the art director and did most all of the art, except for this cover art that was done partially by Gabriel Lamberty. He's one of the best comic artists I know.

I love the look and style of the game. It is my virgin effort into console game art, but I will stand by this forever.

Download it.

MagFest 9 - Review

Originally uploaded by HazeStudiosGames
Well, I've survived another MagFest. Let me tell you, this was an ordeal. Great games and great parties everywhere, as usual. There were, however some differences. The word of the year: Crowded. This convention sold out a few days before the opening, and it shows. Suffocating crowds in the arcade and hallways, hour long waits on the elevators. Not to mention that any popular panels got overloaded and left scores of fans out in the streets.

Of Course, It's Over 9000

The other word of the convention was "OOOOAAARGH!!!". Note the spelling. You could not travel more than fifty feet without hearing someone yell this word. It relates to the sound. It refers to the sound Colossus makes when he activates his mutant power in X-Men: the Arcade Game. This is available now on XBLA, so anyone can play now. Apparently someone made this sound during the closing ceremonies last year, and it became the running gag for this fest. They even named the arcade after it.

New Sailor Moon Game !

Originally uploaded by HazeStudiosGames
It would appear that Sailor Moon is being re-run in Italy, and after 10 years has become a phenomenon there all over again. This means new toys and a new video game from
Sailor Moon: La Luna Splende

Bandai Europe
, for the Nintendo DS! Good thing I know Italian! This is gonna be awesome. Remember that the DS (not DSi) isn't region coded! Sweat!

It seems to be from screen shots to be a basic retro-style platformer, with multiple playable characters. Fine by me! It will retail for 29.99 euros. March 11, 2011. Only in Italy.
