Coco Loco - iOS Game Coming Soon!

I've just been given the ok to post this image, so its with great excitement I can announce that Twiitch's new iOS game, Coco Loco is coming to the App store very soon!

As the first major, long term game project I've had the opportunity to work on, I feel very fortunate to have landed in a group of such amazingly talented and passionate developers. The wealth of knowledge and learning that i've been exposed to during this project has been amazing.

Coco Loco is a game that's seen a lot of blood, sweat and tears go into it from a very small but incredibly motivated team of creators... and I think from having played some of the early builds that it really is showing the dividends from this.

It's amazing that back when i made the move to pull back on my stable toy industry full time work, i looked at the prospect with a bit of trepidation, but the desire to get out there and learn new things and garner new experiences won out. When i look back now I feel it was the best move i ever made.

A chance to produce all the artwork for one project is both terrifying and extremely satisfying. Characters, Backgrounds, Logos, Interface items and even particle objects. I've had the chance to have a go a everything. Never before has being out of your comfort zone been so much fun!

Its been a very challenging and extremely fulfilling project and I hope any of you tha play Coco Loco have as much fun playing it as we did making it! Watch this space for a release date soon!

Importing Forza 3 vinyls

Ha! Awesome!!!

Just discovered that you could import your vinyls from Forza 3. Thankyou Turn 10!!!

Very awesome feature indeed. Now, how many images can i fit on one car? :)

First turn syndrome

It always amuses me how much mayhem can happen in the first turn of an online race. Actually make that even the first straight. Somewhere someone has come up with the idea that crashing into other racers off the start line is the most efficient tactic to winning a race.
Hmmm...but if you take your self out as well, how can that be efficient? I must say i do love starting back on the grid and watching it all happen then hopefully experiencing the deeply satisfying sensation of navigating my way through the carnage...

Did up my version of the kind of company car i'd like to see at work. Took my beloved RX8 and gave it a bit of the Twiitch treatment! :

Forza 4

Ah, when I think how many hours i pumped into my addiction for Forza 3!

And now, Forza 4 is out and is m0re awesome than i could have possibly imagined!

The lighting of the cars is stunning. The handling is amazing, and the sound is sublime.

Have already invested several hours into designing some liveries. Also had some great racing last nite with friends list buddies Kenji and Crispy.

Check out some of my new Forza 4 liveries...

New Painting

Its seems like ages since I've posted and the same since i was able to finish a painting. Unfortunately due to an overload of work at the moment I'm going to have to apologise that this looks like it might continue for a little while yet so my posts will be infrequent.
I did however get a few minutes this morning to put some finishing touches on a painting thats been sitting on the easel for quite a while.
