About Nate Schmold
VANCOUVER ISLAND, CANADA — February 26, 2014
— The official website for Nate Schmold’s
indie ’seed planting’ arcade shooter has
launched. Featuring a preview trailer, game information, a host of
high quality screenshots and—for the first time,
publicly—a fully playable alpha version of the game.
Players can now go to
and play the current in-development build of Cosmochoria
within their browser window, using keyboard and mouse (gamepad
support is planned for final release of the game).
While the alpha version is still missing features that will
appear in the final version of the game, it has already been
receiving positive feedback by the Reddit Indie Gaming
(/r/IndieGaming) community and through social network channels like
Facebook and Tumblr.
Cosmochoria is more than halfway to the top 100 on
Steam Greenlight with an upcoming Kickstarter campaign to fund the
final stages of development beginning on April 1st. For more

Nate Schmold has spent the better portion of his life creating
and performing music (under the moniker Mantrakid), running an
underground hip hop & electronic record label (Neferiu
Records), doing freelance illustration and design work to pay his
bills (80BIT) and generally trying to make the world a cooler
place. After decades of fear, distraction, and hesitation he
decided to finally utilize his diverse skill set to turn his
lifelong dream of making a video game into a reality—and
thus, Cosmochoria was born.
Founded in 2014, 30/30 is a small one-man (Nate Schmold)
development studio focussed on releasing original game and music
content, and posting reviews and highlights on content within the
music and gaming communities that directly influence it. Prior to
30/30, Nate Schmold ran a successful independent record
Neferiu Records” for 13 years, and uses the
knowledge he has gained in running Neferiu Records to
30/30 as a new type of content provider, delivering
fresh, original music and game content under one roof.
