Let’s Make Games would like to welcome Chris McCormick to our family of dedicated volunteers. With his involvement, we will be able to undertake bigger and better things in 2011! (More on that in future posts.)
Chris is a quintessential indie game developer – having worked on everything from old school games for Gameboy Advance to new school apps for iOS and Android. He has an ongoing labour of love called Infinite8BitPlatformer. Here’s a teaser video:
Chris has been a prominent figure in the local scene for quite some time. He started the Perth Independent Game Makers Initiative (PIGMI) a few years ago (and continues to manage the mailing list). He also served on the original board of the (now inactive) International Game Developer Associations’ (IGDA) Perth Chapter.
He’s very passionate about open source software, as evident by the list of software he has developed and released for free on this website. (Ask him what he thinks about Apple or Microsoft sometime… but make sure that you’ve got some time to spare.)
Thank you Chris: For your years of dedication to helping independent game development in Perth; and for your ongoing contributions via PIGMI and as part of Let’s Make Games! 😀
