Larry Charles's Blog


Dear you,

I'm most commonly known by Larry Charles or LC, and I love to think and share my thoughts. I'm a business man who's into developing games and just being creative in general. I love learning and networking with like minded people. 

I graduated from AI-OC with a Bachelor's in Game Art & Design. I worked at Obsidian Entertainment on the cancelled Aliens RPG, founded GoPlay Games and released multiple iOS titles independently and for clients. Most recently I was a level designer on Yar's Revenge developed by Killspace Entertainment for Atari. Currently I am in graduate school earning my MBA.

I find myself to be an optimist and an infectiously positive person. 


Larry Charles, Jr.

I think its exciting. Nintendo may have as many hits as they do misses in the innovation department, but I love that they keep trying to execute on ideas like this. It 's good to see more imaginative gameplay experiences being developed.

I really liked Battle Chaser 's Night War and their use of the overdrive mechanic. Mana horders were incentivized to use their spells, since basic abilities would grant you additional mana that you 'd lose after the battle was over. It almost played your emotional connection / value against itself ...
