As development on Blobbit Push draws to an end there’s a list of things that need fixing, sorting and tweaking before the game can be published. One of ‘these things’ is to compile a list of all the animations we’re using for the front end UI. Stuff like level select, pause menu, you get the […]
Back in 2011 whilst browsing through some of my art archives I found a disc image called “Sensible Golf Editor”. Of course I simple had to try it out even if I couldn’t remember how the thing actually worked! Well it was a great idea at the time but I just couldn’t remember what keys […]
Christmas 2011, the holiday season was about to begin.. I was just about to begin the slow down for the holidays, you know the usual sort of thing, mulled wine, ginger wine, mince pies, backing up my files, fixing things, you get the idea.

One of my recent projects was to design the artwork for a pinball game. The first table had the theme of Aliens and UFO’s. So not wasting any time I came up with these little chaps who fly about the Nevada desert looking for things to abduct with their dazzling tractor beam of light. OK […]
There’s a secret that I’m surprised hasn’t surfaced by now? It’s not something to change societal structure, nor create widespread panic on a global scale. No, this secret is about a game I worked on during my Sensible Software days,
It’s screen shot time again folks! I’ve taken it upon myself to provide a few screen shots for the GamesTM article that’s currently being written. ‘Yeah no probs’ I said thinking I’d load up the old Amiga emulator, take a few screen shots and be out in time for the virtual pub to open.. Nope! […]
During a recent clear out and tidy up..hang about that reminds me does anyone remember that show that used to be on in the UK many moons ago called Stoppit & Tidy Up?? Narrated by Terry, oops Sir Terry Wogan? No?… oh OK…as I was saying I was in my garage doing some “conversion” work… […]
