My name is Mike and I work at a school where I love to teach the kiddos about Game Design, Writing, Chess, Piano, Sports, Art, Computer Building and whatever else I can think of 🙂
Before I started working with kids I worked on the Doom 3 Mod Last Man Standing as the Project Lead, Level Designer, Gameplay Designer, Lead Beta Tester, and Public Relations. The Mod was featured in over 30 magazines and won numerous awards including Best Doom 3 Mod Of The Year at the IGF Awards which were held at the GDC.
When I started working with kids I realized there wasn’t much for them to be able to create in 3D so I started the project Platinum Arts Sandbox Free 3D Game Make at http://SandboxGameMaker.com so that they could create their own games and stories.
Now I am working with a free Minecraft-esque clone called Minetest to make Princess Rainbowface and also D.’s Sandbox which focuses on creating worlds.
