Happy Halloween!


I apologize for neglecting this blog for so long. A lot has been going on since Apple introduced iOS 9, and OS X El Capitan.

I have been working with the awesome people over at on a couple of big projects. I am happy to say that I am one of the co-authors for their new book 2D iOS & tvOS Games by Tutorials. If you’re interested in how to make iOS and tvOS games, you should give it a look!

I’m also a new member of their online video tutorial team. My first series is on beginning native tvOS app development. I’ll post a link here when it becomes available.

And Speaking of tvOS, I’ll be porting several of my apps to the Apple TV very soon! I can’t wait to see Spooked on the big screen!

iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan

I am aware that there are some compatibility issues with most of my apps under Apple’s new operating systems. I will be releasing updates to address these issues very soon.

See my post in the Support Forum for more details.

Have a spooky, but safe Halloween!

 UFO Sightings are on the Rise!

From the cold, dark reaches of space, they come. Curious about our blue jewel of a planet. What life exists there? What resources does it hold? How can they exploit it? What tastes better; beef, chicken, or man flesh?
