A Legacy of Black Intelligence (pt.11): Supporting our Video-Game Developers & Graphic Novelists…

17 September 2010 No Comment


Today I’d like to tell you about two good friends of mine who are doing their thing: a video-game developer who’s made 5 games thus (all FREE) far and a black novelist who’s currently in a major competition that means a lot to him.

Roger hicks, aka rekcahdam developing games...My developer friend is Roger Hicks (aka Rekcahdam); an old college friend’s older brother. So far his team has put together:

>> Wings of Apocalypse: an airplane vertical shooter
>> Wings of Apocalypse X: the latest remake
>> rComplex: a side-scrolling platformer
>> RadialGun: a puzzle-style shooting game
>> Stream: a side-scroller about time-travel & guerilla warfare…

They’re all sick. Here’s some videos to prove it:

rComplex – The Facts from R.J. H. on Vimeo.

Wings of Apocalypse X – I’ll Fight Alone from R.J. H. on Vimeo.

And here’s some of his music (you might remember this from the Blog Talk Radio show earlier this week):

The Wings of Apocalypse tells the story of how the worlds governments came to form a unified military force in order to stop a common threat. The story is parrallel to our own history…” ~ Roger Hicks

———— The Graphic Novelist ————-

My novelist friend is Aiden Woodley, a brother I met on facebook whose been following my work and supporting me for some time now…

He’s participating in a graphic novel/comic book contest called “Marie’s War: All Hell in the Specific” to help get exposure on a MUCH larger scale…

The story takes place on a small island in Japan during World War II, and the goal of the project is to “depict much wider aspects of Japanese cultural beliefs and practices.” Aiden’s character, Nathaniel Walker, is meant to expose racism during that time…

vote for nathaniel walker on marie's war all hell in the pacificSince this is so important to him, he asked me to share what he’s doing, and this really is the least I could do. He said to make sure to tell you that this means a lot to him, because it’s an opportunity for him to have a positive impact on so many other people.

You can vote for Aiden (and find out more about Marie’s war) here.
