I thought that it was about time for me to bring my personal page back to life. I have a lot going on and I want to be able to share all of it, with all of you!
Who am I?
I am Zack Bell! I make games! Typically fast-paced, action games! You may know me for my work on FROG SORD and/or SUPER III. No, neither of these have shipped at this point, but you can play both of them below!

I am a programmer first, but I also enjoy design. I have a love for rapid-iteration development! By this I mean quick and dirty prototypes. I enjoy tearing ideas from my head and having them playable within hours. Knowing whether or not something is FUN is key.
What have I been up to?
A lot! I ran a SUPER III Kickstarter during tough times and couldn’t pull the funds together due to some minor communication problems. That’s ok though because it put me in a rough spot where I was forced to work on other things A LOT! For the first time in games, money was my priority. I pumped out several engines and code packs for the YoYo Games Marketplace and each product was even featured on their homepage!
My most popular engine: Rope + Water Physics Platformer
The marketplace products were also a reason to remain public. I was constantly tweeting GIFs of my programming progress in order to gain a following and show off products to potential buyers. My reach expanded and I started to get a bunch of contract job offers among other things.

Again, a lot! I have been working with a distributor/marketer friend to get some big things moving along. This is the reason that I want to bring this blog back to life and I will be sharing news with all of you very soon!
Thanks for following and feel free to contact me regarding anything from contract work to tutorial requests!
