As the only artist for my first published game Outer Rim, I designed, modeled and textured all of the game’s assets. We are currently working on a much more advanced reboot of Outer Rim that includes unique ship abilities, bosses and maps that will allow you to choose your mission. It will be released for PC, XBox and Nintendo switch in 2020.
Outer Rim Arcade Cabinet
Our Outer Rim game cabinet was an old virtual fighter 2 cabinet that was converted into Buck Hunter and eventually used for parts. There was an old Aladdin’s Castle token inside, so I assume that’s where it came from. I purchased it for $75 and added a 27″ LCD witch was connected to my laptop inside.

To top it all off I added an amp and 150Watt self amplified sub. It Rocked!
