These were taken a week before the Tohoko earthquake and tsunami disaster which is why I had forgotten to go back and develop some of the shots from the photoshoot we did.  This was for a PixelJunk advert campaign in Famitsu, where I played the "gaijin gamedev in the heart of japan" experiencing all the full on delights of Kyoto.
This maiko-san's name is Katsumi-san and she had turned twenty the day before. She was the most popular maiko (apprentice geisha native only to Kyoto) in Gion (the biggest geisha district and very expensive nightlife area), and she probably still is!

Great Dylan! You've always been one hell of a game developer, since when you worked on X and Starfox! I'm a great fan of yours, and these pictures are beautiful! :)

Hey Dylan!

When are you going to make us another space shooter like Star Fox?

There is a game out called "Gear Up". You could take the textures and lighting from that game, the polygon count from Star Fox snes, keep the rail-shooter aspect, and increase the world size. 

I'm of the opinion that it wasn't the mascots that made Star Fox fun. Simple art direction, solid gameplay, and enjoyable music are what is most important.

I know you're busy, I just wanted to cast my vote. I think the game industry could learn a thing or two about what it take to make a fantastic space fighter arcade adventure game.

So... we spent a bit of effort on this, perfecting the various sounds, and then working out how to perform it entirely live for the camera, prepare yourselves!  Blue Monday by New Order performed live by The Electric Bends

We did three jams today (The Electric Bends) at lunchtime, sometimes it really surprises me how we can do that. Here's the first one and click through the link to hear b and c too.

Haven't posted in a while but this latest @ElectricBends track is quite peculiar and is worth sharing :)

Old-school dance with a touch of purest gangnam m'lud... this will get you up and dancing on your desks!  The new King Korg is being rather.. "expressive" to say the least, give it a spin!

Our latest album is proving popular... 17 delicious tracks to work or drive to, put a smile on our faces and spend a few dollars!  No, put ear to ear shit-eating grins on our faces by buying two albums! :)

The Gosho, a massive park and 'summer palace' in the center of Kyoto taking up one entire 1kmx1km block, great for picnics :-)

A whole bunch of photos from our trip to GDC last week, and the recovery Napa wine country trip that followed it where we had the pleasure to visit the Newton winery which was awesome.

Introduction
I've been a game developer (in spirit at least) since I was about 8 years old when I started making my own board games... quickly moved onto the Sinclair ZX-81 and making fake pac-man games in the awfully slow BASIC.  Since then, Sinclair Spectrum, Amiga, PC, Gameboy, Super Nintendo, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, DS, DSi, 3DS.... and still going strong!

Released games I have worked on:
Starglider 2 (PC), X (GameBoy), StarFox (SNES), Captain Blasto (PlayStation), Ape Escape 2001 (PlayStation 2), Digidrive (GameBoy), StarFox Command (DS), Digidrive (DSi), Reflect Missile (DSi), Starship Defense (DSi), X-Scape (DSi), PixelJunk Racers, Monsters, Eden, Shooter (PS3/PSN), and soon to be released StarFox 64 3DS.

I run Q-Games, which is this really quite awesome games company that makes nothing but really quite unique original games just down the road from Nintendo's HQ in Kyoto, Japan.
Bragging rights
Have worked on four StarFox titles if you include the one that got away: StarFox 2, and I also made the semi-famous PlayStation 2 Duck-in-a-bath demo.
