    Peter Odom
    Creative Director

    There's never been a mind like Peter in the games industry. Always insightful, heartfelt, and industrious, Peter is molding the next great videogame characters. What's more impressive, to be honest, is how brutally funny his worlds are. Comedy is difficult in gaming, but Peter makes it seem easy. His experience with published works and comics shines in everything he does for Minicore.

    Patrick is a nationally-recognized, award-winning game designer. His efforts in SXSW's 2010 AAA Game Design Competition earned him lots of cool attention. It's a good thing we snagged him. His experience as a designer has lent very well to his skills as one of our programming stars. His understanding of gameplay mechanics and systems is the key to our ultimate execution.
