En Passant announcement and DNG news

So! Little late with this one, but anyway: pic above is a teaser of my next movie, En Passant. It's an animated musical I'm co-writing with songwriter Leeran Raphaely, and it's been in production since.. oh, 2010.

It's a massive project - 15 minutes long, 30 characters and many locations. I didn't want to start talking about it until we were in the home stretch, but now that we're in the lighting and rendering stage, it's safe to say this thing's well on it's way. I'm hoping that by October it'll be ready for festivals, and online next year.

I'll publish a full credits list soon (a lot of people are helping!), and I'm hoping a trailer as well.

In other news, Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass has been out for six months, and it's still appearing on gaming sites. DIYGamer recently listed it as one of their top-rated indie games of 2012!

It also just occurred to me that I never posted up some of the reviews it got. Marketing's not my strong point:

● "The game looks, sounds, and plays like a lost classic from the golden age of adventure games"
Gamespot

● "I honestly had trouble putting the game down... it was so damned funny."
Die Hard Game Fan

● "Da New Guys is the most pure fun I’ve had with an adventure game in quite some time."
Just Press Start

● "You’ll definitely have a good time."

Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass out this month!

At long last, the Wrestle Zone's most infamous heroes are back. I'm proud to announce that Da New Guys: Day Of The Jackass, a cartoon graphic adventure, will be coming out Feb 29th, published by Wadjet Eye Games.

I've had to keep this quiet over the last few months, but masses of work has been going on behind the scenes. We've got professional actors voicing the roles, QA testers giving feedback, and added LOADS of new content like more puzzles, characters and even unlockable artwork and achievements. And I might've added a couple more jokes, too.

So, on to the fun stuff! Ready to watch is the new trailer, you can download the demo for PC straightaway, and you can even pre-order it from WEG right now! Up until the launch date, we're also selling a Limited Edition CD version of the game, which comes with DNG: For The Winnings, Wrestle Zone trading cards, and the game's soundtrack.

OK, enough selling from me. Can't wait to get this one out there, and later on, I'll have some info on my new film project.

Best what????

This weekend I was at the International Filmmaker Festival> in Kent, where The Light At The End was nominated for best animation. It was great - I did a ton of networking, saw loads of films and met some good people.

It was a nice introduction to the world of festivals, and I hope not the last I get to go to. My thanks to all involved, especially it's chief organiser Carl. If you're in the area next year and have time, be sure to check it out.

Oh, and Light won! A trophy for the shelf, and leaves for the web page!

I finally made a demo reel!

It's high time I made one of these. All the animation is by myself, but the boy chasing the seed was created by Two Rivers Partnership.

Meanwhile, I'm insanely busy on a new film. It's been in pre-production for six months already, and it's going to be huge. That's all I can say for now, but once it's out of pre I'm going to be a lot more open about it than my last films. More soon!
