History of PC Sidescrollers

Several people I have called friends, or have just worked with in some capacity speak in this really awesome documentary on the making of PC Sidescrollers. Several of these games I had a small hand in working on back in the day. One of my all time favorites even gets a mention here, “Monster Bash”.

Check it out – I love LOVE LOVE the history here. When you’ve finished watching, go help support a new sidescroller – Interceptor/3D Realms’ own Rad Rodgers: http://kck.st/2cDwhgk

My Meaningful Music

A friend of mine recently posted a list of his favourite albums. I read it, and thought "I can do that", and then realized that quickly the list would get out of hand, because I have a LOT of music, and I'd list way too much stuff. So, I decided … [Continue reading]

Stargunner Music

Back in 1996, a few things happened in my life. I got married, and my former company released a few games that were fairly notable. The more notable game was "Duke Nukem 3D", a landmark in PC gaming history. The other game that didn't get as much … [Continue reading]

Duke Nukem Swag

Some years ago when "my" version of 3D Realms was still going, there was a really active community of Duke Nukem fans.  There was a thread on the 3D Realms forums asking people to post their collections of stuff.  Initially I didn't want to … [Continue reading]

Suspended from Twitter

UPDATE 2 JUN 23: I got reinstated.  Need to write about that, but in short, it took them 15 days to respond to my original appeal request.  Sigh. UPDATE JUN 22: It's now two weeks later.  Nothing's changed since I wrote this on Jun 15th. A week … [Continue reading]
