Tomorrow ey?!?


I was at Target this past Thursday, and noticed they already had the playable demo for "Arkham Asylum", the same one that was available at Comic-Con, THEN it dawned on me that the game will be released TOMORROW!!! The kid that was playing it seemed to be having a blast, and that's when it reeeeally dawned on me; "oh sh#t, this game looks AND plays friggin' amazing AND I got to work on it!!!' 

...the only comparison I have with working on a project like this was when I had the HUUUGE honor of working with Richard Bennett on 'BRASS'... you send your pencils (in this case, designs), and what comes back is so much more than the sum of it's parts.  The creative team over at Rocksteady took the doodles I did and turned them into AMAZING 3D sculptures, and then you see these things moving and interacting inside these menacing, dark environments.... not much else to say except that I am a lucky bastard and am damn proud to have been a part of this project!

....I can't wait to get my hands on this here thang'!!! (^_^)

Now I am going to have to kick your butt in the game.

Carlos man I love your work I've been a big fan ever since I picked up Brass, I've been waitin on this game to drop since I heard about it and when I found out you were doin designs it was considered purchased. Cant wait for your next project, saw your name in the DC solicitations for Nov on Starcraft 7 looking forward to it.

Carlos here,

Thanks Y'alls... the game seems to be getting a pretty damn good response, and the little I've played was fun as hell... like I said, I am just happy to be along for the ride! :)

I just got the game and it is AWESOME!!! You,the team at Rocksteady, Mark Hamill, Kevin Conroy, Arleen Sorkin did an awesome job.

Is there anyway you can get permission for more of your design concepts to be displayed on your blog? I played the game and they are in it as collectibles, but i would love to see your own notes to the developers on how something should function.

BTW, i love your Scarecrow design too.
