French Roast Studios is an independent game studio in Orange County, CA, USA. We're creating awesome, interactive experiences and games for a variety of platforms, but mostly for PC and mobile devices. You can view our blog and twitter feed here:


Our current projects include:


Tiger Hawks

A slight twist on the arcade vertically scrolling shooter. This game utilizes a different mechanic of tactical dogfights to take out waves of enemies. In between missions, you can explore and interact with your team, similar to the old Wing Commander 3 series, using mini-games and crew dialog to boost your battle stats and unlock new planes and weapons!

Conjurer

A magical, fantasy action platformer metroidvania game. This one's been on the back burner for ages. Conjurer is planned to be broken into a trilogy, spanning across the lives of three brave adventurers, a mage, a rogue, and a warrior, within the same world, across different eras. Been looking for the time and funding to get this one into full production. Help and make it a reality!

Oculus VR and Mobile Games Gamejams, collaborations, and hobby projects

I enjoy making little weekend projects, usually related to my daughters' fickle whims and fancies. It's good practice! Platforms will likely be for iOS, Android, and Oculus. I'll likely be hosting Twitch TV sessions documenting development of each project.

Programming and Art Tutorials

There's a great feeling I get when teaching others how to do what I do. Every so often, I'll be posting up tutorial videos on programming in various languages, including Java, C#, Javascript and C++, with frameworks including Unity, Flash, and LibGDX! I'll also be posting videos on how to illustrate and animate in 2D!
