I was lead designer of Freddi Fish ABC for Nintendo DS.
My name is at the top of the credits!
Right after college, I was using it as a rapid prototyping tool.
I made demos often by myself to test game ideas at 1st Playable, and show the publisher how certain parts of the game might work.
This became my specialty – I was the guy assigned to all the demos and proposals, training others in the office how to use GameMaker!
The Nintendo DS image above is from a PC prototype I made for Freddi Fish. It showed how the “Sandy Beach” drawing minigame would work, where you draw pictures in the sand for fun.
We delivered my prototype to Humongous Entertainment, the original creators of Freddi Fish.
They loved it, drew a heart, and sent that screenshot back!
