Sup Holmes is horrorified with WayForward’s Adam Tierney

Director of Aliens and Silent Hill answers questions live

[Destructoid’s Director of Communications Hamza Aziz asked Jonathan Holmes to make a show called ‘Sup, Holmes?’ so that Destructoid could later sell a t-shirt that says ‘Sup, Holmes?’ on it. This is that show. Subscribe to the podcast feed and find more episodes here.]

WayForwardVember on Sup, Holmes continues thoday at 1pm PST/4pm EST with Adam Tierney, the director of Lit, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Aliens: Infestation, Silent Hill Book of Memories, and many others. Adam started in development as a pixel artist, and has done his best to bring as many folks from that community (including Paul Robertson and former Sup, Holmes guest Joakim “Konjak” Sandberg) into the fold at WayForward. He started off at the company in 2004 as an animator, and since then has worked his way up the ranks to director and designer. 

We’ll be talking to Adam about how he got into the industry, what it’s like to take on beloved franchises like Batman, Aliens, and Silent Hill, the connection between Centipede and Studio Ghibli, his thoughts on the Wii U, and much more. Join us in the chat and become our new best friends.

Just like in a Gameboy game... a nice tight little world... and all its inhabitants... made out of little building blocks... Why can't these little pixels be the building blocks for love..? For loss... for understanding"- James Kochalka, Reinventing Everything part 1 "I wonder if James Kolchalka has played Mother 3 yet?" Jonathan Holmes
