Jordon McClain is the Founder and CEO of a small indie game company called Steel Cyclone Studios. Currently Jordon is teaching himself Game Art, Design and Development in his spare time. Jordon is creating a videogame built upon his in-house engine known as the Cyclone Game Engine. The Cyclone Game Engine is a 2D/ 3D game engine built upon MonoGame and the XNA Framework to help make it easier and save time creating games. The game engine is not perfect by any means. The game engine is still in its infancy stages of development which is why its not available yet to the community. The Cyclone Game Engine is primarily built to serve the needs of Steel Cyclone Studios' game projects. Once it is further developed, Jordon plans on releasing it. Jordon's ultimate aim is to make it into the videogame industry and join the greats of videogame designers. In the meantime, Jordon is trying to hone his skills and learn as much as possible.

Blood and Bacon

Game review

Blow up some pigs in this hilariously gory Xbox Live indie shooter. I hope you have an umbrella because this is one bloody game! It's probably the bloodiest game I've ever played. Between every wave, you get your weapons and talk to a farmer, who hangs from the wall of a barn via pitchfork impalement. Oh, and he's missing a leg too. I have to tip my hat to the guy(s) who wrote and performed the farmer’s lines: wondering what the farmer will say next motivated me to complete a wave. The farmer adds humor to the game. The blood splatter and particle effects are entertaining. Even though you face wave after wave in a single setting, the game incorporates strategic elements like a meat grinder that feeds on blood (and the machine can also give you extra ammo and such), an electric fence that fries enemies, and a water pump that heals you. B&B doesn't have a large arsenal of weapons, but this limitation is mostly made up with items that make you fast/agile or turn you into a dangerous melee freak. Its fun to play something not too serious every once in a while and with friends. I forgot to mention that this game has coop. My friends and I got a few laughs playing coop together. The HUD reminds me of Left 4 Dead's HUD some. The game plays really well and the controls are excellent. I think the game would be more fun if the challenges added a bit more variety. Overall, its a fun wave-based shooter. Go download it now on Xbox Live Indie Games on Xbox 360 for only $1.00

Zombie Football Carnage

Game review - 1 disagree

Zombie Football Carnage is an amazing Xbox Live Indie Game. The game is very well crafted and so much fun to play. You can throw footballs at monsters to attack them. There are a bunch of different enemies and you can upgrade your character. You can upgrade your health, armor, your football throwing attack, your dash, and primary and secondary abilities. This is great especially since I found it very challenging from the start. There are different powerups in this game and it get addictive to play. There are so many waves in this game, I don't know when it ends. When does it end? The boss fights are interesting. The graphics are very impressive with great quality textures and a unique art style. The particle effects look stunning. This game has its own achievements as well but they don't go towards your Xbox Live Gamerscore since its an indie game. Go purchase this game... Go.. Go NOW! Get IT!

Barrage Engine

Engine review

Milkstone Studios has made an excellent game engine built upon the XNA Framework and their work is amazing. Contrary to many Xbox Live Indie Game Critics, their games are fun, they look professional, and you can tell that they put a lot of effort and work into their creations. Its not easy to make an indie game or a game engine from scratch using XNA. I hope the gaming community recognizes their hard work and find their games fun to play as much as I do. This engine deserves a 10/10!
