January 14, 2009:
I can't believe I'm actually typing this, but here we go.
I will no longer be accepting freelance or work-for-hire gigs until at least June 2009.
Boy that is weird to type. But there it is! Our work over at
Semi Secret Software
is really taking off, at least for the first half of this year, so the freelance shop will be closed until summer.
In the interim, in my last few years in the industry I have had the chance to work with some really talented
people who I can happily recommend for some of the services that I used to provide. It's kind of a short list
but these people are the best I have ever worked with!
Pixeljam (Multiplayer Flash Games)
Trileet (Multiplayer Mobile and iPhone Games & Apps)
APS (PC and Console Games)
Kyle Pulver (Graphic Design & Websites)
Narrow Design (Flash Sites)
Infinite Ammo (PC, Mac and iPhone Games & Apps)
Nicalis (Mobile Games)
Kiel Figgins (3D Animation & Modeling)
Pillowfort (Game Programming)
dB Soundworks (Game Music & Sound Effects)
Ozone Sound (Game Music & Sound Effects)
That's about it I guess. Thanks for all the support and help and advice that has helped
me get to where I am today, and I'm sure I'll be back before you know it! (Adam Atomic)
Last Chance Media
is an independent game development studio located in Austin, TX.
LCM first opened its doors in Spring 2006, and has since had the awesome opportunity of collaborating with a lot of driven,
ambitious clients, including Electronic Arts, CMP, McCann, APS, Beef & Pie, and Requiem Software Labs.
Adam 'Atomic' Saltsman
is the studio Director, founder, and everything else.
He is proficient in a dozen programming languages, and helped ship 20+ games in the last few years as a programmer, artist, and designer.
In those precious few hours that he is not working, Adam likes to play bass and go rock climbing.
"Adam is the type of person that makes it easy to do your job, and makes you look better just by virtue of working with him.
Adam has an innate ability to creatively solve problems and create simple yet elegant solutions.
My only gripe is that there is only one of him."
Myron McMillin, Creative Director, Requiem
"I think it's ****ing awesome!"
Dan MacDonald, Indie Developer
"The quality of work we got from Last Chance Media was excellent.
Their turnaround time was quick and revisions were always done in a timely manner."
Jared Churchill, Director of Production, Zygote
"Last Chance Media was painless to work with and responded to your client's every need with grace and in a timely fashion."
Stacey Gazinski, Producer, McCann Erickson
