I am a co-founder of hatchlight. We are "an indie game studio focusing on rapid development of ios games". I had been Lead Designer at Controlled Chaos. I came on as the first employee when we started the company. Got my start modding in the '90's, addicted to Bungie games like Marathon and Myth. Self taught level design, game art, and scripting early on. Art Degree in College then later Guildhall @ SMU, 2nd Cohort. Level Designer and Producer on Eclipse, the TC for hl2 back when no one else had done TC's for hl2. Professional Experience at Gearbox, Atari, THQ, CCM, on PC, PSP, Xbox, Xbox360, PS3. iPhone too, we make iPhone games. I'm a decent designer when it comes to the industry, because I'm flexible enough to design within all sorts of genres, technology, and constraints. But my heart as a player lies in shooters and rts. This page probably won't get updated very often, but if you're here you can use it as a jumping off point to connect with hatchlight and our games.

Talos Principle has such a mysterious feel but I wish the floating mines would chase you like in Phantasm and Elohim could be Angus Scrimm.

@Polygon maybe @UNICEF should've contacted some actual gamedevs and made a powerful game rather a short term shockgroping viral ploy?

Controlled Chaos let go of all employees. Some of us have started a new project called hatchlight. We are the core guys that did bank heist. We are not working on BH any longer as it belongs to cchaos. At some point we might work on our own shooter but for now we are making indie games on ios. I hope you check us out. thx, ddm
