Adversarial Manifesto

Adversarial Manifesto!  The surprise smash hit of the Global Game Jam 2014, Adversarial Manifesto was originally developed by a group of digital wizards at the Melbourne site in a crazy 48 hours.  Now being developed for a full commercial release, you can check out how it's progressing here.

Check out my work on the soundtrack below:


Automation offers players the opportunity to build engines from scratch, design their dream car and then run their production empire through the 20th century from the 1940s onwards.

Automation: The Car Company Tycoon Game 

This project called for 24 original full length songs, charting styles from the 1940s through to the 2010s.
