I spent the last year and a half working with some friends on an indie game studio, and we're finally going to release our first title!

NOM Productions is an independent game development studio located in beautiful Broomfield, Colorado. For our first project, we've been working on a mobile game called "Down the Hatch!" And after over a year of development, we're proud to say that we're now on the Google Play Store! Thanks to everyone for their support!
