Heat Wave

What?!  Two blog updates in one year?!  Yes, true believer.  It’s been one crazy summer (see reference here).

Back in May, Robomodo asked me to join up and help get Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD out the door.  Now available for download on Xbox Summer of Arcade!  Available soon for PS3 and PC.  Everything went so well, Robo and Activision asked me to do the launch trailers too.

If that wasn’t enough, I took over as audio lead for the DLC to follow later this summer/early fall.  So watch for that.  Levels from THPS3; pretty rad stuff.

Speaking of, a HUGE thanks goes out to the entire Robomodo team.  I had an absolute blast working on this title and a big part of that had to do with the fantastic team.  I really can’t thank them enough for helping my work sound good.  Truly top notch art, programming, animation and management.  Nice job, Robomodo.  That’s how a game sells 120,000 in one week.

I quit bartending at the Metro.  7 years.  Damn…  Thanks to Joe Shanahan and all my co-workers over the years.  “Get me off this crazy thing.”

More?  That’s right!  More!  Try not to wet your pants.

The Organ Trail: Director’s Cut soundtrack is available now  Buy it here for 5 bucks.  22 tracks of apocalypse road tripping.  Killer artwork by Benn Marion.  Early concept stuff that was too good to not use.

Organ Trail from The Men Who Wear Many Hats will be available soon for iOS and Android.  So, the tunes are only to hold you off for a little while until you actually get the game.  Then you’ll say, “Sweet Raptor Jesus, Ben.  You weren’t kidding when you said this game was fucking awesome.”  Then I’ll be all like, “Yup.  Told ya.”

TRAILER COMING SOON

So, now I’m just waiting for the occasional THPS HD bug to roll in and planning a long vacation with the lady.
