The Visitor is celebrating its 9 year anniversary! It's the first game I ever made, so it's only fitting that it be the first game I bring to the mobile app stores.
If you feel like getting nostalgic follow the links below to download it for FREE:
Big thanks to Tom and Newgrounds for starting me on my gaming path. Especially the NG community. Your feedback and comments kept me fueled for years. I've been off the radar for a while now but I'm still tinkering away.
I have a new Reemus game in the works and some ideas for a new Visitor.
Interested in seeing new games from me? Comment below, I'd love to hear from you!
This is a hilarious walk down memory lane for me. I made the Visitor 8 years ago, I'm happy to see people still playing it. I guess a good cat butt explosion is timeless.
It's been a while! I've been locked away for the last year tinkering away at a new Ballads of Reemus point and click sequel that hopefully will be done soon. I have a new artist on board helping me craft it, so it should be pretty sweet!
As if video game dev isn't hard and time consuming enough I've also decided to take a crack at the TV world again. It's been almost 10 years since my old show "Sons of Butcher" was on the air. Canada is a bit of a black hole for TV, it takes years to get anything through the pipeline. So when the CBC launched a Comedy Coup accelerator program to find new shows I decided to take a run at it.
The premise is you enter your show idea and 10 weeks later they pick one winner and a pilot gets made. Each week is a new challenge designed to show if you can actually pull off your idea, which people vote on and the most popular make the cut.
So far we made the first round of cuts and are in the top 110. At the end of the month it chops down to 55, then 15 and then final 5 in December.
We'll see what happens, but in the meantime you can check out our new show idea in the video below. If you like it, click the FOLLOW, RATE and FAV icons. There's also a little SHARE icon to post on twitter and facebook which also requires you create an account and login. Blarg, It's a convulted system so I appreciate anyone who even takes the time to watch it.
What's it about? A 52 year old security guard gets screwed out of his pension when they privatize the city sewage treatment plant he works at. So he goes on a mission of revenge against city corruption by kicking the shit out of all involved. The deeper he goes the more he uncovers about the Illuminati, drug cartels and a bevy of other conspiracy theory craziness.
If you like early 90's action movies and goofy comedy then check it out.
This video is a sample scene we shot last week. Dig it.
Thanks for the support,
The first Ballads of Reemus game is now available as part of the Indie Royale Golden Jubilee Bundle. 6 games, including Reemus for $2. For less than a gram of crack you can point and click your way through Reemus' first commercial adventure!
Two days left to grab it!
Kickstarter has officially launched in Canada, which means I'm officially launching a Canadian Kickstarter and who better to launch with than Reemus and Liam.
"The Ballads of Reemus 2" Kickstarter campaign officially went live today! You can check it out here: http://kck.st/1aWvkrz

THE BALLADS OF REEMUS 2 STORY SO FAR...
When Reemus the Exterminator’s main competitor Pest-Go reduces pest control to a skill anyone can do with a squirt bottle, Reemus fears his chances of having a truly heroic ballad written about him are over.That is until he stumbles upon an invasion of killer Death Slugs that has all the makings of the greatest quest of all time, one that can not only restore extermination to its former glory but finally put Reemus on the map as a true hero. Now the only question remains, will Reemus and his sidekick Liam defeat the insidious Death Slugs, or will they be the ones exterminated?
Yes, I'm returning Reemus to his roots and finally going to finish the Death Slug storyline. I've been thinking about it for years now and since the odds are low I'll ever finish it in free form, I decided to take a commercial run at rebooting the storyline. I'm going to take the ideas from the free games, revamp and polish them with new puzzles, new artwork and full voice acting. I'm going to give it the treatment it deserves.
I've also created a bunch of rewards that allows you to add your own stamp on the game, with inventory items, character names and even having a ballad of your own. So check it out!
After four years the alien assassin is back! After releasing The Ballads of Reemus last year, we were hungry to take another one of my old games and create a beefier commercial version of it.
I've always felt like theSmall Favor universe was ripe for storytelling and I barely scratched the surface of some of the ideas presented in the old game. So we decided to follow in the tradition of a million other game developers and turn to Kickstarter for support.
We're hoping to kickstart $30K to create all new, beefed up "A Small Favor" game. It'll be a bit of a reboot, telling a new story with the same nameless hero but with improved graphics, bigger story and hours of gameplay. We're also going to make it a side scroller in the vein of "Another World/Out of the World" to allow for some deeper exploration.
We're aiming for September 2013 for release.
Thank you for your support!

PS. See you guys at the Pico Day party this year! After launching my first flash movie here 13 years ago Tom Fulp and I are finally going to meet in person. Crazy!

There's 36 fully voice acted characters in the game. You may recognize some NG voice talent amongst them! Big thanks to Joshua Tomar aka TomaMoto for breathing life into Reemus!
Hope you enjoy it!
For those of you that want some Reemus but don't want to pay, don't worry. "The Several Journeys of Reemus: Chapter 4" will also launch on January 27 on NG!
It's been forever since my last Reemus game, but soon that will all change. I have TWO new Reemus games on the horizon!
The Several Journeys of Reemus Chapter 4 is complete and will be launching on NG in the Fall. It takes place where Chapter 3 left off. Reemus and Liam arrive in the Kingdom of Danricus in an attempt to have their death slug adventure officially recognized by the Department of Heroic Quests. Non-linear puzzle world and multiple endings await ye adventurers!
If that's not enough, The Ballads of Reemus is also coming this Fall. The first full length Reemus game with 40 locations, 30 fully voice acted characters and featuring NG's own Joshua Tomar aka TomaMoto as Reemus.
Get your point and click finger ready!
Check out - Ballads of Reemus for more details!
I finally have a new point and click adventure game out. It's about me, alcohol and aliens. Check it out!
Last month I decided to head off into the snowy Canadian wilderness and lock myself away in a cottage for a week. All in an attempt to finish the remaining background art for the upcoming full length Reemus game, "The Ballads of Reemus". In addition to my computer, I brought along a video camera and recorded the whole adventure.
Watch me draw, consume sugar and grow a beard over 7 fun filled work days! Enjoy!
