in 30 Minutes

My name is Michael


25 years building software.

5 years in Indy Film Production.


I have the power to create.

Making Games is an Art:



Graphics, Sound, Story, Characters, Voice Acting, Interactions, Game Play



All this art comes together in a Game Engine


Making Games is not Hard


Art just takes self-discipline, self-learning, and the ability to fail early and often without Ego.


The Artistic Process:

This is awesome!

This is tricky.

This is shit.

I am shit.

This might be ok.

This is awesome!


Making Games is not Hard
