About Tom Dean

I have a passion for compelling story telling and love a great adventure or mystery!  Video games can be an excellent medium to entertain, educate, have adventures and of course share in engaging stories.  While the gaming industry is populated with many wildly popular titles across the genre spectrum, there persists opportunities for creatives to develop inspiring story rich titles. It is hoped that more and more wholesome, light bearing, awesome titles may someday dominate the gaming landscape.  For my part, I serve to encourage other indie developers as well as proactively participant toward the objective of producing commercially successful video games with uplifting stories, immersive game mechanics and hopeful endings.

My professional career (33+ years) is balanced between intellectual property illustration and for the past two years a regimen of video gamedev learning coupled with the planning, design and development of 3 story based game titles. The objective going forward from now (2021), is to launch the first title within the next couple of years followed by the two additional titles (currently in concept) over the next few years.    

The first IP, Alberico's Day, is an adventure based RPG based on the short story of the same name written and illustrated by Carly Dean. The book will be published this year.  I serve as lead game/narrative designer as well as developer.  Alberico's Day is a collaborative team endeavor with roles shared amongst my creative and talented family. Additional details concerning Alberico's Day are TBA 4th quarter 2021.

The primary venue for following development is found at my personal gamedev blog, imtomgamedev.com as well as other social media outlets.

imtomgamedev.com serves to:
  • communicate my ongoing gamedev processes,
  • disclose active project development content,
  • gain exposure for pending product releases,
  • share, engage and communicate with the broader indie gamedev community

For a closer look at published titles, print publishing, related products and my professional services, visit inspiromedia.com

In addition to the 3 game titles currently either in development or in planning, is a separate website venture (edistories.com, launch pending) aimed at publishing and promoting uplifting content rather than discouraging content that so permeates the internet and society at large.  More to come.

Well, it's early in a New Year, 2021!  The world as we know it continues to undergo a transformational change in this time though hope remains.  My hope abides in Christ Jesus, the Son of God who saved me from sin and offers forgiveness to all who believe in His atoning sacrifice and who pray for forgiveness.  My hope abides in Him who can save us and heal our land.  Prayerfully, this Patreon support page will undergo many productive updates during the year with forward moving disclosures forthcoming. 

The purpose of this page is to ask for financial support in the endeavor of creating light filled, engaging, edifying and commercially successful video games.  To those who have resources and interest, please consider supporting me on Patreon. 

Feel free to reach out to me directly at [email protected] with questions.  I encourage you to also follow development on social media.  Updates will be posted here, at imtomgamedev.com and various other outlets.  Whether you support or not, consider subscribing to receive updates posted on imtomgamedev.com, the subscribe link is located on the home page.

Thank you kindly for reading!
