Tweet I found this excellent video today by Emmy Jonassen of Indie Game Girl fame. Its a 53 minute video on how to market your games without a budget. This video was a presentation Emmy made at Konsoll 2013, and what struck me with the video is how basic many of these things are, yet …

This is an old article now, but relates to those last few days when you are finishing off a project (a new game in this case, but its generally the same with reskins as well), and the stresses relating to getting things done.

Tweet Hi again, This is a question I get asked often. Where do you buy decent source code to get into the reskinning games business. The answer is, it depends. I am going to be a bit controversial here and suggest you do not necessarily go out and buy the most popular reskin source code …

Story
Tagline
Mobile Games Development, Reskinning, and Project Management
Introduction
I'm a game designer, and creative director for Intrinsic Services Pty Ltd where I provide consultancy services for mobile games development.

In recent times my business has taken a turn into reskinning apps, that is replacing the graphics, sound and music from a game and effectively creating a brand new game.

This is such a new and exciting area of mobile games, that I created an entire blog to talk about it.   Visit my reskinning apps blog for more information which I aim to regularly keep updated.

I can help you in virtually all aspects of mobile games including managing your game to ensure it gets completed on time and on budget, through to providing development services.

My focus is on the Apple app store for IOS games, however I have successfully published to the major Android app stores including Google Play, Amazon's App Store, the Barnes and Noble Nook Store and Samsung's App Store.

Previously I worked full time as creative director and games designer for Funky Squid Games producing games for IOS and Android platforms.

I've been a gamer since the days of the ZX-80 and Apple ][e (font memories of Bill Budges Pinball).

I can remember writing my first ever game way back in 1980.  I never really pursued my passion for developing games until 2011 when I started dabbling in it seriously.

Over the years I've read many games programming books and learned many software development toolkits, but never really went for it.

Check out my corporate website for mobile game consultancy services.   

I've also posted in detail in the past on this game development blog if you are interested.

Bottom line is I was born to create computer games, I am having a blast, and I really hope the games we create are loved by the players!

If you are looking for someone to help get your mobile app to market why not drop me a line?
Bragging rights
I am doing what I am most passionate about in life, which is being helping mobile games into the hands of players. Life is all about following your passion. It took me many years to realise this, and now I am making up for lost time!
