THE LAST GUARDIANS

Gargoyles lived at the same time as humans. They knew of humans and knew to avoid them at all costs. Humans however, knew gargoyles only as folklore or myth. Over time, gargoyles faded to literature and disappeared from the time of man.©™

 

RONIN: YOUR HONOR

Your master has been killed and you have been left for dead. The last thing you remember before losing consciousness is your village burning. As you drift back into oblivion, you remember the strange mask the attacker wore - you remember the eyes. They weren't human.©™ ©™

 

NANOS

Your deep space mining operation has unearthed something other than unobtainium. The scienetists found something in the crystal structure of the ore - something that's not possible. ©™

ABOUT ME

#Rick Stalder was born on January 27, 1967 in Los Angeles California. I spent eight years in the United States Marine Corps and upon my discharge, I received a track scholarship as a walk-on to NWMSU where I met my wife. I eventually transferred to the University of Missouri - Kansas City and pursued a degree in Classical English Literature.

I am a graduate of the Police Academy in Columbia after which I worked as an undercover agent in the narcotics unit for the Sheriff's department.

From 1998 to 2006 I worked as a traditional graphic designer for print projects, new media and web. Since 2006 I have worked in the video game industry for projects big and small as a UI and motion designer.

    WHAT I PLAY

    #

    As an art geek, specifically game art... I'm heavily into Japanese Anime.

    My very first game system was the ATARI 2600 and the game, 'Indiana Jones - Raiders of the Lost Ark' was my favorite.

    'Eye of the Beholder' came out for PC and I knew what I wanted to do.

    However, knowing what you want is not always the same as 'doing what you want'. It would take me several years of discovery before I would be able to come full circle, but here I am.

  • MUSIC

    I LISTEN TO

    #

    The wonderful group from Liverpool - John, Paul, George and Ringo - The Beatles, is in my opinion one of the best things that have happened in music in the twentieth century.

    I also love Black Sabbath, The Rolling Stones, Talking Heads, The Clash, Fine Young Cannibals, INXS, Creedence Clearwater Revival and classical music.

    WHAT I READ

    #

    I came up with a list of 8 books that I consider must-reads from both contemporary and classic literature:

    To Kill a Mockingbird (Harper Lee), The Great Gatsby (F. Scott Fitzgerald), the Bible, Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte), 1984 (George Orwell), Fahrenheit 451 (Ray Bradbury), Catch-22 (Joseph Heller), Cloud Atlas (David Mitchell).

  • PHOTO

    WHAT I SHOOT

    #

    I don't consider myself a photographer. I don't name my work or give a location of where the images were taken. I want the viewer to find their own definition of what they see.

    Pictures are a slice of time frozen to paper. Anyone who sees my work and are moved to feel something - gives me a great deal of satisfaction.

MY BLOG

About this Blog // I love design. In the beginning, it was drink coasters and packaging, I thought that designers were gods. Streaming media and Macromedia Director put CD creation and educational learning at the forefront. Flash came along and website design took a HUGE leap forward. Game consoles could now do more and game creation changed too. I plan on just commenting or blogging when the mood hits. Quality of posts are more important than quantity of posts.

  • STUDIO YOKAI: GREAT THINGS TO COME

    Studio Yōkai is a new and independent game development studio with a focus on games for most mobile devices. I started Yōkai with the goal of creating exciting and addictive games for social and casual play.

    I plan on doing this by telling great stories. As a species, before books, we drew pictures on cave walls and passed our history on through stories told around the fire. We told stories of our past, of the future, what we thought deities would be like and the monsters in our dreams that lurked beyond the firelight.

    There are stories waiting to be told and stories that need to be retold. The key to a great game is the story, the reason something did or didn’t happen. When you can sell that – you can create a great game.
