I draw, write and probably spend a little too much time thinking about untangible things.

This is the space where I unapologetically indulge my interests in art, books, games and the occasional bit of film, all mostly with a science fiction bent.

Hello, and welcome to Play Forest.

Play Forest Game Box Art

Box Art!

In an age before the internet, endless, accessible reviews, or any of that, and where the scant gaming magazines were, well, scant, it was the box art adorning a game that was left to attract one’s attention and often convince one to buy it in the first place.

It started with a single story... that grew to become multiple stories, all with a very different flavours.

Singles: One off written and illustrated stories.

MAG-100: Designed for tablets and desktops, MAG-100 is a non linear, interactive tale of the far future (Note: not designed for phones).

Land of 5th: Designed for tablets and desktops, Lo5 is an exploratory, non linear tale of whimsy and fantasy (Note: not designed for phones).

V8Lab is the fictitious design studio where all my designing happens.

Early Vehicle Concepts

Like most things, where I started with MAG-100 and where it's ending up are two very different places.
