So what have John Yoo and Piggypops been busy doing since Earth Eternal? I recently had some correspondence from both of them and thought what they each were working on looked amazing and would be of interest to the community here.


Piggypops is working on a really creative project! In an Atari gaming contest he is in "the top 20 candidates for the Pong Indie Developer Challenge" which can be found at: http://www.atari.com/pongdeveloperchallenge

  • "Atari is looking for some great developers to help bring Pong® to the App Store!

    Reimagine Atari’s classic Pong® for a chance to win up to $100,000 and see your vision come to life! "

Given that just he is up against some gaming companies and studios shows he's a true underdog!

John Yoo, former Lead Designer with Sparkplay that previously worked with Blizzard's World of Warcraft, of course first took a position with Zygna as a Senior Game Designer before becoming a Senior Creative Director at RockYou, who produces "Zoo World". Currently, he is Co-Founder and Design Director of Rumble Games, and their first game "Kings Road" will be launching Beta shortly! Like Earth Eternal, this is also a browser-based game.

You can learn more about Kings Road
HERE

Those that sign up early for beta receive a special Rumble Armor below:

According to the site:
  • Grab your sword and shield, then travel the KingsRoad to uncover and defeat this threat. Your adventures will take you from Edgeworth Forest to the snowy peaks of Deveral and beyond. You’ll meet true companions, treacherous turncoats, bloodthirsty foes, and one stubborn princess.

    Find your courage, Knight: Uncover the truth of the Shroud and you’ll forge a legend that will endure forever in the songs of the Realm.

Lulz. No offense, but anything touched by John Yoo is the last game I'd ever choose to play. I saw enough of his handiwork from (the ruination of) EE. :grr:

I do wish Piggypops the best in his endeavors, though.

And on that day, Ember got forgiven by Crash for the kittening of his post.


At John Yoo ---> :grr:

Hello Earth Eternal friends!

It's been a very wild ride for me in the time since I've departed the Earth Eternal project. I am happy to say that I've landed a fantastic job as the Producer for a company called SkyVu, makers of the hit iOS game series "Battle Bears". On top of that, I've also been very, very busy on something called The Atari Indie Developer Challenge!

I've assembled a team of fantastic engineers, artists, producers, and others to create one of the most original, unique, and exciting modern update to the classic arcade game Pong. We're proud to say that we've made it into the semi-finals and are now battling 19 other teams for the big prize.

I come before you today to share that I've started a Kickstarter for the project. If you have the time, please look it over and see if it sounds like something you want to become involved in. I'd be more than happy to talk one on one with any of you if you need convincing. Be part of the team and help us make great games!

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1692826186/irl-pong-atari-indie-developer-challenge-project

Thanks!

-Andrew


I just donated $25 to have my name in the credits! Guess I'll be having two less cocktails tonight, which means I'll have to bring my "A game" and flirt a little more for those drinks!

Image

Honestly wish you the best of luck in the contest and competition! I'm truly rooting for you to win and wish you the best of success and rewards in your future endeavors!
