Installation Game

Recently I was contracted to create some pixel art for a game that is played on the side of a building. The game is called CTRL ALT PDX. It was designed and programmed by the awesome folks over at WILD aka Built by Wild.  So I spent a week hanging out with them and making some pixel art. It was a lot of fun and the game is launching Friday, March 20th.

Installation Game

In order to play, you stand in front of the building, call the number shown. You then are prompted to create your character using the number keys. The information is then fed into the system and routed to the game which is projected on the windows so you are effectively using your phone as the controller!

The game has many lines of cute dialogue written and recorded by the guys over at WILD, I laughed quite a lot testing the game out. As far as art style, they wanted a mostly black and white almost ASCII art feel to the game. Here are some characters and items I created for it.

Jungle Gym

So for the past few months, I’ve been working ’round the clock on my newest startup: Ahnixware. Other projects such as my clothing line have been on the back-burner during this time.

The idea sprung on me after teaching a class in game design in Portland. I’d heard of a contest over at Tizen in which they were giving out tons of prize money for people to make games for their new platform. I’ve wanted to start my own game development studio since I was a little kid and now with the internets and all the new mobile platforms out there, I decided now is the time to start.

Fast forward a few months and I have a new company complete with branding, website, and my first self published game. (The game development itself only took about a month and a half, but the branding, web design, and cross platform porting has taken me much longer.) Here is Ahnixware’s dev blog and here is the game’s promo video:
