During the porting process of Infliction to consoles, there have been many challenges that have made me reconsider the way I had done things. It's definitely changed the way I will do things moving forward.

The earliest version of Infliction was actually the second project I ever created in UE4. The first being a game jam. Needless to say, I had no idea what I was doing. As such, quite a few decisions I made without even knowin...

Exactly one year ago today I started a Kickstarter. That Kickstarter kicked some major ass and met its funding goal. It did however fall short in regards to stretch goals for both additional languages and console release.

Cut to today, I have self funded Infliction for seven languages which include German, Spanish, French, Chinese, Russian, Japanese and of course, English! I have also partnered up with Blowfish Studios to bring...

Infliction update 2.4 was released about a month ago. In fact, at the time of writing this, 2.5 is already out. So why am I writing this? I wanted to talk about the bonus content I added to the game and the lessons learned from such a thing.

I love special features on DVD and Bluray. I own the special edition of Lord of the Rings and I often choose the watch the appendices over the movie itself. I don’t know how common that is....

Next week I’ll be adding Russian, French and Japanese subtitles and interface to Infliction as part of update 2.3. This will bring Infliction's languages up to six along-side English, Simplified Chinese and German. I’m always so excited to bring new languages to Infliction. It represents the opportunity to expose more people around the world to my game.

Update 2.3 also adds new quality of life improvements (like a level select...

I recently wrote a blog on Gamasutra about my experience with releasing the Infliction demo. The blog covers the technical problems I ran in to simply running the demo on Windows machines and how I overcame these issues. I also have learned a lot from this experience about what elements of my particular type of horror frighten people. This has lead to invaluable feedback. If you're interested in such things, you can check out...
