Blog Moved To Tumblr

June 9, 2013

Just a small post to say that my blog has now moved to tumblr (same address as before pixeltao.ca). I also moved most of my old posts there. I will still keep this wordpress blog live in case people would like to access some old posts or comments that I didn’t transferred. See you on tumblr!

War Photographs

January 18, 2013

Here are some new Mercenary Kings screenshots:




By the way, we announced earlier this week on our Tribute Games Facebook page that we’ll be showing Mercenary Kings at the IGDA DemoNight in Montreal next Tuesday 22nd. Be there! But if you can’t attend, you’ll have another chance to see (and even play!) the game before its release at PAX East in March where we’ll have a booth.

Here’s some animations I did for Ninja Senki. It was a lot of fun animating these tiny sprites.


The Long Lost & Forgotten Shmup

October 31, 2012

The second post on this blog was about a WIP Unnamed Shmup. Unfortunately, I haven’t made much progress on it since I’ve been busy with other projects. So, here’s some of the stuff I did for it.


Click on images for original size.

Since it can be a challenge to animate rotating geometry, I made a low poly model of the ship before animating it.

And here’s an unfinished tileset for a city level.

Hope I can go back to it someday!


Wizorb’s 1st Anniversary!

September 28, 2012

Wizorb was first released on Xbox Live Indie Games last year, and today marks its 1st anniversary! To celebrate, we decided to drop the price of Wizorb to 80 points on Xbox Live Indie Games.


“Kickstarting” Mercenary Kings

August 14, 2012

We’re launching a Kickstarter for Mercenary Kings today! We really want to make this game the best it can be, and to achieve that we need additional support.

We hope that people will see the huge potential of this game like we do and will be willing to participate in this adventure! Our backers will get cool rewards (the most basic one being a digital copy of Mercenary Kings and a digital copy of Wizorb).

We tried to describe Mercenary Kings as thoroughly as we could on our Kickstarter page, so you can check it out here:


As you might have guessed by our Kickstarter project image (shown above), Paul Robertson will be doing the animations for the game. On the art side, Jonathan “Persona” Kim, and Stéphane Boutin are also involved in the project, so you can be sure that it’s gonna feature some fancy graphics!
