Interesting note

Alas I am going to shelve it for a little while as I am going to work on another project that I am super excited about. I can't talk about it too much but if all goes well it might just be one of my crowning achievements as an artist....

My Virtual Globe named Crusta has been actively used by Geologists at Davis and is being deployed to further collaborators in academia. The experience has given me appreciation for high-performance, real-time graphics as well as "production"-level software engineering.

Specialties
real-time 3D graphics, data processing, out-of-core processing, software frameworks

Cool stuff to be sure. Can't wait to see what they're working on whatever it may be.

Does anyone know who replaced the guys who left for Armature Studios (Game Director Mark Pacini especially)? I know Michael Kelbaugh is still the Pres/CEO and Bryan Walker became the Senior Development Director (fun fact, both of them are ex-Navy and Army guys)

I can't decide if I would rather see it on 3DS or Wii U. On the one hand, I already have a 3DS and it would be awesome to have a great Retro developed game on the system. On the other hand, I'd love to see what these guys could do with some high-powered (hopefully) hardware, even if I'm not sold on the system yet.

Either way I'm excited.

They'd have to compete with the Halo 4 team which is pretty much the best dream team you can think of minus Valve.
