Created the social video game site Cheerful Ghost from concept to implementation.
"Cheerful Ghost is an indie website that was started January 2012. We are a close group of friends that love talking all manner of geek such as films, TV and video games. Cheerful Ghost also published the space shooter rogue-lite Starship Rubicon."
Published the Indie rogue-lite space shooter Starship Rubicon through Cheerful Ghost. Brought the game to the Steam, Humble Store, Itch.io & Desura stores to sell the game digitally. Worked on a successful marketing campaign focusing on the game and it's unique gameplay. Showed the game at various game conventions including Indie Game Con, Portland Retro Game Expo, OMSI After Dark & Game Masters.
"Starship Rubicon is a modern take on the classic space shooter genre. It's a smart and challenging rogue-lite that features a unique control scheme, pixel art remixed with real NASA photographs, and an existential crisis about who is REALLY the monster."
