I'm a solo independent game developer and electronic music artist whose given name is Larry. Before developing games, I began using Blaze Epic as a pseudonym for my solo music project, starting out with two EP's, an LP, and a few covers from video game soundtracks before a regrettable phase of rapping sarcasm with comedic intentions. While a majority of the aforementioned had been made available for download, I'm not fond enough of any of it to have kept it public. I still try to play around with music but since shifting my focus towards game development, I had carried the name over as an independent game developer.
An action/adventure game taking ques from both film-noir and samurai-drama's of old, "samurai_jazz" takes players on an adventure through an enigmatic city, engaging in realistic sword-fights, encounters with mythological beings, and quirky dialog with the local inhabitants all presented in a pseudo 8-bit format. While action remains the central focus, a bit of detective work and puzzle-solving is necessary along with the usage of twitch-reflexes while having to stop and think to effectively overcome each of the game's abstract scenarios.
