Mark Martillo / Profile
Given Name: Mark Crawley
Pseudonyms: Mark Martillo; Martillo; Sledge; Sledgenet
InTo Games is my mobile game development codeshop. It was started as a way to get some business experience (obtaining funding, contracting freelance artists and so forth) and show that I could develop and release a full product to market. After the initial release of rocket-based puzzler, BlastOff!, I decided to refocus on the more niche area of interactive fiction and am currently writing the engine upon which future games will be built.
A collection of projects that I have completed in a variety of languages. As much as C++ and Objective-C make one feel like a 'proper' coder I must express a preference for higher-level, managed dialiects.
I'm not actively involved in the StackOverflow community but I do have a careers profile over there and am happy to report myself as fully FizzBuzz capable!
I tend to pursue my musical exploits under the Martillo moniker and while I do tout myself as a singer/songwriter (who doesn't?!) the bulk of my time is spent producing local artist, Glen Charleston. The site covers our output, hints 'n' tips on FL Studio (the software I use and which I love) and retrospectives on the bands and artists that populate my CD collection.
Professional web design is only a recent venture for me but a fulfilling one nevertheless. My approach to site creation is to take simple, complementary technologies and weave them together in order to meet my clients' needs in an affordable way. LifesACelebration.co.uk is a perfect example of this.
