Gord Cooper's Blog



Here's a shortish wall of text for you to climb, where I talk about the stuff I've done.  I assume you didn't come here by accident, so you'd be delighted to know all about my work at EA Sports on SSX, and the titles I've worked on at IUGO Mobile Entertainment, like the Animal Academy series of games, Sunshine Cruise Lines, and the blockbuster hit 'Knights & Dragons' for our partner, GREE Inc.!

After my work with IUGO, I moved on to DeNA Vancouver, working on a couple different series, including 'Transformers: Battle Tactics'.

Beyond IUGO, I worked with Kemojo Studios on 'Tap Cats: Idle Warfare', but have most recently found myself in with the good people at Roadhouse Interactive, where I'm enjoying working on projects I can't talk about here ;)

Please be sure to check out my story Without You, as well - I worked a long time to craft it to where it's at, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Throw me some feedback, I'll throw you the whip!

Also, see me here at LinkedIn and Check out my portfolio!

Recently, I was given the assignment of taking a favourite game, and deconstructing it. I did, and here it is. Hope you like it! Referenced materials are easy enough to find, but I will cite at the end of the paper itself.

Developing platformers/scrolling screens on PC was hell, and largely unheard of at all at the time this was developed. The memory drain to create that scrolling draw effect was insurmountable with existing memory managers. Duplicating this genre on PC was a nightmare, and these guys crushed it, with the caveat, ...
