I love sketching out game ideas. The thrill of designing a spaceship or game character and trying to figure out what monsters and challenges lie ahead has never left me.

Designing sprites for the HTML5 game Galactians2

Right back when I was a young teenager in the early 1980s I got a buzz out of watching a TV show or film and dreaming of how the events therein might translate in to an arcade game.

To this day I keep a sketchbook in the car or an iPad mini at my side should I have inspiration. The one thing I don’t do (which I really should) is share my thoughts on here. So all of that is going to change. In an attempt to breathe some life in to my much neglected blog I intend to spill my design thoughts on to here a bit more frequently. There will of course be an obvious bias toward mobile web gaming and the technologies of HTML5 / JavaScript. But generally I just want to get back in to the habit of talking about games and cool designs.

  1. Hi Mark, I am regular reader of your blog. I am very interested in knowing if you are fully focus on making your own games and monetizing them in different ways? Or you spend some time doing client works?

    • Hi Jorul,
      I make my own original games. It’s very much where the thrill is for me. I don’t at all get excited by making somebody else’s design for a game. Not even for the big money ;)
      I make a very good amount through advertising revenue and strong partner relations.
      I hope to blog more! Thanks for reading :)
