WIP #023: Eric Ruth – Pixel Artist

Posted by on December 3, 2014 | No comments

Overwatch_pixelIf it’s true that fortunes favors the brave, Eric Ruth must be a lion. As an indy developer he’s authored a large number of demakes (a pixelated game that borrows core style or gameplay elements from another game). Most noteworthy are Team Fortress Arcade and Pixel Force: Left 4 Dead.

It has been a few years since I last spoke to Eric and in that time he’s been busy. A project that had Valve interested in his work (though it ultimately fell through) and a stint at Riot Games (home of League of Legends) had him traveling across the county.  Now he’s settled down, with some new friends, to make his own original game.
