About the Developers
Chris Dixon, FOUNDER, GRAPHIC DESIGN/BRANDING, GAME DESIGN
…although Chris loves sports, games have always been at the center of his life (so much so, here’s an example of what happens when Chris goes to sleep…no joke). He has been making board games and card games since he was ten years old, and started designing games in RPG Maker way back in 2003. Chris is the wizard behind all of the colorful artwork that you see in Produce Wars (XBLIG) and on the website, and primarily focuses on game design, promotion, and branding.

Mark A. Dixon, FOUNDER, PROGRAMMER, GAME DESIGN
…video games…the next frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Gigaloth. Although Mark grew up as a Trekkie, he was never as frustrated as Captain Kirk was with Khan when it came to video games. At Gigaloth, Mark is in charge of writing all the code. Programming. You know, the core, the X’s and O’s, the heart of the beast. Without him, it would be “Game Over”. Mark programmed the award-winning Produce Wars (XBLIG/PC, Programmer) and is currently programming Empyrium Tactics for Steam release.

Gigaloth Support Team
MD Shoatzycoatl, EPIC STORYMANCER
…from the depths of Dr. Wily’s fortresses to the top of great 8-bit mountains, games have always had an inspiring impact on MD’s journey through life. So much so that he’s pursued a career in writing (“World Train” , “Snapshots to Bliss“, and “Rebuilding Broken“). He consults for character and story development for Gigaloth. MD is currently writing the World Train series, and is working on a graphic novel adaptation for the mythical adventure series.
AJ Hartman, GAMES BARD LVL 99
…from the far reaches of southern California, to the barren expanse of eastern Nebraska, and back to the mountains of Colorado he has travelled. In his limited time here on this great ball of rock, AJ has strived to save the world from the despair of low quality media. He provides miscellaneous support on all of Gigaloth’s projects.
