Notes: I first started working on this project summer of 2011 as an internship through the UC Santa Cruz Games and Playable Media in partnership with Kid Natural LLC. The project consisted of a UCSC advisor, the CEO of Kid Natural, and the dev team of me and another UCSC student. Our role as the dev team was to create a design for a mobile game that would be a fun arcade game based on surfing. As it was a small dev team I had a major role in the design and project management, as well as the implementation of the project from early prototype to release on various app stores. The project prototype was initially written in Android and Java for the length of the internship. After the internship and Android release, I continued to work with the Kid Natural team as a solo developer in charge of porting the project to iOS, Android, and Blackberry; for this role I had to rewrite the entire project in C++ and using the Marmalade SDK to port.

Team: Chris Garcia (Solo Indie-Dev Project)
Environment & Tools: GameMaker & GML (Early Prototypes), Unity 3D & C#
Roles: Designer, Developer, Story Writer, Pixel Graphics Artist, etc
Notes: MechaFrog is an ongoing project that I have made various prototypes to over the years. My earliest time working on this project dates back to 2003 when I was first getting into game development. Initially I used GameMaker and created a simple 2D game with a simple story and "released" it on the GameMaker forums. In the past I had considered this my first completed game in which I had a beginning & ending. Looking back on it, I now consider my past work a prototype to the new version being reimplemented in Unity.

This is a solo indie-dev project and I am slowly implementing & testing features without a set release date as I work on other projects.
