Hey Tiggers! I guess I should introduce myself. I've been lurking for quite a bit, and don't have time to pump a post count up to a respectable level, so my posting will probably be infrequent, but I love this community, it's made of awesome.
So I'm Greg, I'm 24, live in Iowa, look like I'm 34 and co-founded intuition games
with three other chaps (ted, mike & josh) in the fall of 2007.
paying 0.25 per minute to play shitty battlefield clones in the Denver airport on the way to GDC 08!
Ted, me & infinity.
all of us in our hotel room in SF
As far as games I've worked on, it's mainly dinowaurs, i've done some simulation stuff with the U3 engine for a virtual reality thing at Iowa State University. I've also done a few projects during school that amounted to no game (due to no programmer) but a lot of art...
A semester or two ago we got a little something going in torque game builder, it was called YOMI... it's not much, but whatever.http://intuitiongames.com/portfoliopages/yomi.htm
I went to school at ISU for four years studying graphic design (in my last semester now) and before that I pursued creative writing at the University of Iowa, and before that I wanted to be a chef. I still like cooking and writing, ideally i'd like to write/design games, but i enjoy the visual arts as well and find programming really rewarding. I still consider myself a student and probably always will, and i love learning from all of you guys. GDC was especially awesome.
i have some recipes (if hungry) and other work up on my website at www.gregwohlwend.com
which includes my blog from when i was studying abroad in Rome last semester, it was a blast. I'm here to feel the powerful passion and spirit of games made out of love instead of green paper slips. I'm not happy with the current market of video games and I feel it's my duty to be part of the solution. I think it's a great time to be an indie developer, a kind of renaissance will emerge out of us, i know it.
My favorite games of all time are Baldur's Gate II, and FFVII, FFII (cecil and kain, I know it's supposed to be IV or whatever, i played II on the SNES, suck it.) link to the past, kid icarus, bionic commando, mario 3, oh yea, and trial by fire: quest for glory II (ESPECIALLY AWESOME game by sierra, also could add in DIG, and robin hood: conquest of the longbow and other SCUMVM). right now i'm having a ton of fun with n+. Go raigan and mare! I don't get to play enough games nowadays, but that's why TIGs is so awesome, i can taste them and get back to work.
