After a moderately successful career in commercial architecture, Niz has struck out on his own as a writer and illustrator, and hopes to publish some neat books in the near future. Notwithstanding his daily regiment of prose, the lad also takes time out to check on the latest games courtesy of Joystiq and Destructoid, among others, and currently gets his dose of Canabalt in HD whenever the need arises. Motion sickness has made playing FPS a nightmare, though fortunately third-person action is still okay, and a soft spot for point-and-click adventures, platformers, side-scrollers and good story-telling will, without a doubt, keep this gamer active for many, many more years to come.
Suffice to say, my participation with tech and gaming websites has pretty been much that of an avid reader rather than a participator. However, that all changed when I came across the Destructoid Artisans' Scumm Contest, and I knew I just HAD to put something in. I mean, who wouldn't want a season of Tales of Monkey Island by Telltale Games, right? I certainly did, and thanks to the Artisans, I've enjoyed the last three episodes of Guybrush's adventure on the high seas, complete with the pox, manatees and booty.
Here's to more winning booty in future! Arr!
ps: Oh yeah, you can check out the winners of the Scumm contest at the Dtoid Artisans blog here. I'm fourth from the top. Ahh, how I miss the roar of those Corleys.
