Eric Kinkead Announces QuestLord

July 10, 2012

Whoa!   What a way to start off the Houston Game Development site!  Eric Kinkead comes first out of the gate swinging bloddy knuckles and casting spells with this Ode to old school classic Role Playing Games for your Mobile Phone!

Looks like he got picked up by some major game press as well !!!

Eric Kinkead probably has the longest and most storied history of ANY game developer in Houston.  If there are any others with more games on more systems ranging from Coin-Op Arcade, PC, Gameboy, and even freakin’ Dreamcast, then we would love to meet you!  But right now, Eric with his 25 years in the business is undisputed champ.  This dude saw Mortal Kombat get created and is featured in NBA Jam Tournament Edition as a freaking character!  Don’t believe me just click on his interactive portfolio website that he programmed that plays like a game!  Who does that?  Awesome.

The game looks completely new yet old school.   If you think that bright and happy big eyed anime makes for classic fantasy or that JRPG defined role-playing games then you are about to be OLD SCHOOLED by Eric Kinkead.  For more information on the game we HIGHLY suggest you head on over to www.questlord.com and check it out!

congrats Eric!


And thank you for having presskit art !!  For any other submissions please follow in the footsteps of the professionals.
