Stand Your Ground
I’ve had the good fortune to work on a lot of fun and interesting projects over the years, but without question a definite highlight came when I was able to be a Producer on the Oh, Sleeper – Stand Your Ground game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Working with the dedicated crew at , we created a high-intensity side scrolling arcade fighter themed around the Dallas metal band Oh, Sleeper and their new album, Children of Fire.
“Send me all of hell and I’ll face them. I’ll face them one on one thousand.”
A first for a band of this genre, we dubbed the game “Stand Your Ground” and dove head first into creating a video game that would immerse fans in a highly conceptual, signature Oh, Sleeper experience. With a soundtrack featuring 8-bit retro versions of the band’s songs and lyrical themes and character dialogue pulled directly from the band’s lyrics, fans were thrust into a dark world where they were forced to fight through multiple levels of ferocious enemy forces and strongholds to survive. We succeeded. Fans of old-school 2D games and the band alike both praised the game giving it an average rating of 4.5 stars. The game is currently available in the iTunes app store.
