SXSW Gaming + KakeBytes

Calling all… everyone?

I have the opportunity to take the stage at SXSW in 2019 to moderate a panel on the worldbuilding in Anthem. You know, the Anthem. The one that is in development by BioWare and will be published by EA.

The catch is that the panels are selected by the will of the people.

To vote for the Anthem panel, all you need to do is register an account with SXSW and then visit our panel picker page and upvote our proposal!

I’m incredibly honored to have the opportunity to work with the technical art team to present a retrospective on what the world building process for BioWare’s team was like.

The description of the panel per the proposal:

The savage world of Anthem is volatile, lush, expansive, and full of unexpected characters. Bringing these aspects to life presented a wealth of challenging problems for BioWare’s technical artists, who bridge art and technology through areas such as performance, shaders, and artist tools. This retrospective panel will highlight some of the team’s work, alongside reflections on innovation, distributed collaboration/coordination, and the successes and challenges of creating a new IP for the world to enjoy.

Thank you!

The things I couldn’t anticipate for, though, have turned into true road blocks.

and awaaay we go!

Well, here’s the website I’ve been promising for quite sometime. Everything is starting to come together now that we’re inching closer to the launch of the show.

I don’t have an official date yet, but I’ll be sure to keep you all updated on the progress. I can at least promise an October launch for episode one!

I’m currently working to finish my patreon. I’m struggling with deciding on rewards for patrons, so if anyone has any suggestions feel free to comment, tweet at, reach out by whatever means you would like.

I’m working out issues with my stream, but feel free to follow! I’m getting ready to go out of town, but once I get back I plan on streaming on some sort of schedule.

like & follow & thanks for reading!
