Mommy, where do games come from?

I've seen these kinds of threads in the past, and it is always a blast for gamers to see a tiny glimpse of where the games they play came from.

Too add a human element to iPhone Games I propose that devs come out of the shadows and post a picture of themselves (optionally) and their work space!

I'll start.

Nah, it's the Honey Bunches of Oats! That cereal is the best

Anyway, yeah that's pretty cool seeing where you developed your games. Is that like an office away from home or is it in your home? I think it'd be pretty cool and just decide when you want to start developing for the day. No having to drive to work and you can get up whenever you want.

Yeah, that pic is on top of Haleakala on our honeymoon (place is amazing). I've been running in Diet Coke lately and make numerous trips to Carls to refuel. The workspace is part of a larger office that an old co-worker of mine works in, but he recently took another job so I'm looking for a new space to rent I've been working on my couch / dining room table lately and it just isn't cutting it (plus I hate being devoid of human contact all day)!

I picture little white bear studios working in a cabin nestled away in the mountains but I'm probably way off

I take it that trophy in the corner is for Scoops winning the most ice-cream-related game in the appstore?

I did the concept for Pigs a Pop'n and I'm the CEO of the company. My business partner, Sherri, is the designer of Mystic Jewels and BounceTrap. She is also an expert on Casino games.

I've been in the video game business since the dawn of time.

A late game is only late until it ships. A bad game is bad until the end of time.

EDIT: please tell me you'll port that to iphone. I lost my old copy and I've been wanting to track down another one for several years now, but it just never happened. ebay can be so flakey.
