About On The Level Game Studios
In May 2011, the jar of On The Level Game Studios was opened. The lid was stuck; so eight Houstonians with their talents and rubber gloves arrived at the scene to lend a hand. Soon after, the first game title was all over the table, the floor and their parachute pantsuits. The team grew to 12 including programmers, artists, sales and marketing, producers, musicians and evil-doers. Nearly six years later, the table and floor were cleaned (pants were stained – thanks, Brand X!), and the team (still six members strong) have two titles released The Curse of Nordic Cove and Boo Bunny Plague and working on launching their third – Rock-N-Rogue: A Boo Bunny Plague Adventure (with the support of some very talented individuals who jumped in (no parachutes) and just dove right in.)
Jeff Reimert - Executive Director of Design & Development
I am an Entrepreneur, gamer, and gormandizer of loud music and fast email@example.com
Favorite Games: Everquest, Heavy Rain, Uncharted series, The Last of Us, GTA series, and pretty much anything Blizzard feeds me.
Rikki Knight – Art Director Who Multiclasses
I was an artist in Dallas Texas working at Fine Line Tattoo when Jeff, a long time friend, gave me that life-changing phone call. He said, “Let’s make some games.” ...and here we are. Having done my fair share of damage in the Quake series mod community, I felt at home quickly. While I’m an artist by trade, I’ve been branching out into light programming with Boo Bunny Plague. It’s been bat-$%@! crazy days ever firstname.lastname@example.org
Favorite Games: Mortal Kombat series
Jamie Daruwala - Director of Sales & Marketing
Realizing I had a nasty addiction to Lode Runner in college, I swore off gaming for years. After a long career as a singer/song writer/musician with the rock band Toy Subs, and almost a dozen years in sales and marketing roles with the Saint Arnold microbrewery, Heineken, and The Nielsen Company, I fell off the (gaming) wagon and joined OTLGS.email@example.com
Favorite Games: Portal, Kingdom Rush, Minecraft with my kids, and a shameless plug for Boo Bunny Plague!
Bunny D.A.S.T. (Danger Awesome Slash Trouble) - Audio Director
I produce and engineer some of the finer punk rock bands out of Houston, Texas, as well as sing and play guitar for Skeleton Dick. I’ve been a music and post-production professional for 15 years, and have released 5 international records and a number of national albums. Now, I’m throwing my experience into directing and creating all of the audio features for our games. I make brash and unashamedly fun and brutal music, sound effects, and dialog recordings with all the care and finesse of a baby with a sledge hammer! After all, if I’m not having fun... things get firstname.lastname@example.org
Favorite Games: GTA (Most of them) and Portal (both of them)
Chris Vasquez - QA Tester with Several Hats
I’m a long-time addict of games, and it’s just in my nature to rip them apart to find what makes them tick. When I’m not breaking or exploiting something, I’m playing guitar with Skeleton Dick. My passion for game production was first ignited with the Commodore 64, specifically with the Amiga, where I met the legendary team that would go on to establish a pivotal annual show in the gaming industry (DiCE). It was Bunny who recruited me for this incredible opportunity and I’m grateful because not only do I get to do what I love – playing games to the brink of breaking them – but now I help design, write, compose music, voice act, and hope to one day get into email@example.com
Favorite Games: Adventure, Yars’ Revenge, Metroid, Contra, Turrican 2, Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Borderlands (both), to start with!
Lynda Wells - Executive Production Assistant
After eons of recruiting, training and managing the success of real estate agents, my senses were awakened by the siren call of Jeff and Carolyn to capture and organize the needs and desires of the On The Level Game Studios Crew, and the fun and frivolity is firstname.lastname@example.org
Favorite Games: Candy Crush Saga, GOT, Bejeweled, or anything that is mindlessly fun!
