THE TEAM

WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY

ANDREW TSAI

jqAYSZg1_400x400.jpg

ANDREW TSAI loves anime a little too much. He came up with the initial concept for UNBEATABLE fairly soon after making a game where you have to type to stay alive, and then told Jeff about it, and then they told other people, and hey, now you know. He does the art direction, a lot of animation, some of the code, has a "story by" credit, and handles combat design and polish. Lots of hats! More hats than a person usually has space for on their head. He's the reason the characters have music names. If he isn't working, he's playing JRPGs.

RJ LAKE

RKyWtZ57_400x400.jpg

RJ LAKE has been sort of accidentally-ing his way through the games industry for almost a decade now, bouncing between asset creation, design, biz dev, and Other. Used to work on Homestuck* (listen to volume ten!) and does stuff with Strange Scaffold (dog airport!). Does Not Code, And Is Sorry. He's handling music direction, additional music, narrative design, dialogue, some setpiece design, all the storyboarding Andrew doesn't do, and is in charge of most of the marketing (the trailer was his fault). He's to blame for all the jokes.

Clara Maddux is D-CELL's resident composer and musician. Her musical journey started by playing drums for rock bands that regularly pushed sound pressure levels far past safe listening limits, but she eventually waned on the aggressive use of volume in order to study the sorcery that is jazz composition. She's responsible for the live recording that drives UNBEATABLE.

            CJ BLACK

            PFPAnimated.gif

            CJ BLACK is addicted to drinking weird anime after smoking a blunt full of skateboards. Veteran criminal, he's never been behind bars because he can't be caught. Compared to the rest of the team he's relatively new to the scene, but he does great work. He plays with all sides of game development, but loves making distinct action systems for small games, something along the line of hookshot fishing at the end of the world.  He's a psychedelic loving action game freak, and always open to suggestions.

            From the far and alien reaches of France, Camille has been animating for games for a while, both for her own games and other's, some you may have heard of, most you likely have not. Rhythm games and beat'em ups are among her (many) favorite genres, and working on a mix of the two has been a lifelong goal... until UNBEATABLE came along and made the dream a reality. She will talk your ear off about any games or series she's remotely enthusiastic about, which is just about most of them.
