"Bello Galactica is a very strongly story & character based game, where our main problem was creating narrative and a world that player could emerge into. Though we Finns are great in making games (Angry Birds!) the foreign narrative has always been difficult to us. In Bello we were extremely lucky to get Josh's along.
Josh has reviewed and much rewritten huge amount of in-game story-line, been responsible in designing and creating the in-game characters and their personalities + given valuable input to the overall gameworld. Working with Josh has been really fun, the quality of his work is high & very well through-out & creative and always on time." Olli Sinerma, Bello Galactica Game Producer, Producer at Applifier
"Joshua was a principle creative collaborator on the development and writing of the teleplay "Dipshitz" for the Palm d'Or group. His ingenious set-pieces, character development, and knowledge of structure helped make the script a solid and production-worthy property.
He worked closely with me on the development of the show bible, and showed great flexibility in responding to feedback from the group. Other scripts that he has written have impressed me with their professionalism and originality." - Sebastian Clough, Palm d’Or Social Club founder, Director of Exhibitions at UCLA Fowler Museum of Art

Nice gameplay footage. I 'm a sucker for words, so I felt a void where a movie trailer might have dialogue snippets or a deep voice over guy. I know, that sounds like blasphemy, right
