About Zero Hour Productions, et al

Zero Hour Productions

Zero Hour Productions is the site and company surrounding everything we do, acting as both container and banner under which we advance our development skills and share our projects with you. It has existed for a long, long time, in various forms and non-forms, since 2004. Rather than bore you with details on its history, though, let's get right to the point.

This site is our portfolio, the growing collection of our contributions back to a gaming industry and culture that has given us so much already. We are always working to improve; we realize the task ahead of us is large and the journey is long and difficult. We are very lucky to have so many awesome pieces of software available and so many incredible people to observe and (occasionally) bug for help.

We will soldier on, forever seeking the betterment of ourselves and the medium that has shaped us, and having loads of fun along the way. This is our time, and we are honored to have you along for the ride.

Seeking Infinity

Seeking Infinity is our first regular endeavor under Zero Hour Productions.

The show began as a means to explore the history and modern craft of a long list of genres, with each of our first two "Journeys" covering different 26 genres. The first Journey of the show focused primarily on a basic overview of each genre being discussed, along with light examples of ad hoc design. Our second Journey put heavier emphasis on designing more structured and involved games; some of these episodes were quite lengthy due to the nuances of the subject matter and the discussions therein.

Seeking Infinity currently sits in its third Journey, on hold for now, as the show's direction shifted to reflect our official forays into forming an independent game studio. Topics discussed largely dealt with our progress in forming an LLC, mostly including explorations of legal processes and how to succeed in managing projects as a studio. A series of significant life events put forming the legal entity on hold, and our contributions to Seeking Infinity are suspended. Seeking Infinity may continue in the near future, as Zero Hour Productions is moving forward with our official incorporation; we will undoubtedly have more to reflect on as we make further progress!

WARNING: The show is rated PG-13 (and the related non-US measurements for media); we occasionally curse and talk about mature concepts. While our intent is to keep the mood jovial and lighthearted, our mode of delivery may offend those without a sense of humor. Fairly warned, be ye.

Insert Credit(s)

Insert Credit(s) is a more casual broadcast / podcast, centered on having fun after a tough week of work, both in day-jobs and other areas.

Insert Credit(s) is our current monthly show, involving Mr. Bond, Tormod, and Saxxon.  The show borrows a large part of its format from the early Journeys of Seeking Infinity; but rather than studying particular game genres, the show focuses on game news around the world, things we've played, freely-available game remixes, and ad hoc design in genres of our choosing. Considering the more serious direction that Seeking Infinity was going with its third Journey, we decided to center Insert Credit(s) as a more free-form production, to continue our designs and discussions even outside the rigors of our official game development.

WARNING: The show is rated PG-13 (and the related non-US measurements for media); we frequently curse and talk about mature concepts. While our intent is to keep the mood jovial and lighthearted, our mode of delivery may offend those without a sense of humor. Fairly warned, be ye.
