I'm an indie game developer, working on a strategy game with mechs. Check out my tumblr link below for cool stuff like videos of the project. :)

Previously I worked at Firaxis on XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and at Blizzard on their Next-Gen MMO project.

I love mechs!
Hey there folks! So for once, the reason I haven't posted anything in a while is because I've actually been powering through a lot of programming. Yes indeed, I've been getting the basic functionality working for a game project of my very own.

It's a strategy/tactics game very much in the spirit of PC classics like X-COM and Jagged Alliance, more the latter than the former. It's also about mechs! YES!

Anyway, I have a blog that I'll be updating to show off all development-related stuff (not just art assets) you can check out if you're interested:

Now that I've finally gotten a good chunk of basic functionality working, I should be able to bounce back and forth between code work and art more often. As the first part of an art phase, I've just added the portrait of a pilot you will be able to hire in the game to my DA gallery.

Oh, and I'm still spouting random nonsense about things like Spelunky, Street Fighter 4, game development, and rad tunes as @ Toasticus on Twitter.

When will the game be posted on Steam or something?

Hello Zack,

This is pretty awesome work and a very ambitious project.

I'm another independent developer, and looking at the industry, it seems that cooperation between small developers will be key to success. If you are interested to co-operate on a project in the future, please let me know. I can be reached at
