We are happy to announce that we’ve been selected to a part of Oregon Story Board! With the support of the state and all involved with this organization, we will be better suited to bring you the experiences that we’ve been working on over the last year. We couldn’t be more excited and honored. As things move forward, we will ACTUALLY use this website more and more. Thanks for all your support, and we hope to finally reward you for your patience. So, for now, head on over to the Oregon Story Board website and learn about what they do, as well as learn about the other amazing companies that are joining us in this opportunity.
Its been a while since we last talked. We will have much more to talk about in the coming days. Thanks for sticking with us. As we venture forward we will have new experiences for all of you and some of these will be sooner than you think. We had to take some time to regroup and figure out what it was that we truly wanted to be and what we really wanted to deliver to you. Well, we’ve come out of the other side and are ready to tell you all whats been going on. So be prepared. You may want to sit down. (but you can wait until the next post if you like.) Stay tuned.

The second Mountain Machine podcast is here. We talk about the impending release of GlitchLab, Halo 4, and our progress on Elliot and the Beyond.
Our profile this time contains info on our resident comic book reader. He’s slowly getting us into it as well. Learn some more tasty morsels of info below.
What do you do at Mountain Machine?
I make pretty pictures.
What is your experience in the gaming industry?
Just a lot of gaming. I would assume I’m nearing a literal decade of gaming time, give or take a few hours.
What did you do before working at Mountain Machine?
I was a struggling designer and illustrator as well as a darn good construction worker. If you need a door put in I’m what people in the business call a professional.
What games are you playing right now?
I’m currently playing the Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening DX on the 3DS and Battlefield 3 at night with the Mountain Machine guys.
What games inspire your ideas? If any?
Lots! Off the top of my head for gameplay Zelda, Metroid, and Castlevania, and any old game that sends you off on a great adventure. For art its Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery. Beautiful stuff. Trying not to rip them off is a constant struggle because everything they do just looks so great. How would you not want their stuff in your game!? Those Superbrothers are like design magicians. I’ve also taken a lot of inspiration from the design company Invisible Creature. They make the most delightful illustrations you will ever see.
What’s your favorite spot to get food in Portland?
Everything on Alberta Street. It’s all delicious.
Do you have any other creative projects on the side?
I just started writing what will become an online comic. But it will probably be at least a year before I’m able to actually get it up and going. I don’t have too much free time anymore.
