Games I've worked on

When I tell people I make video games for a living, they often ask if I've worked on any games they've heard of. I've listed them below. For a full list of games my company has made, visit or

  • Tom and Jerry Tales (2006, Nintendo DS)
  • My Spanish Coach (2007, Nintendo DS)
  • My French Coach (2007, Nintendo DS)
  • My Chinese Coach (2008, Nintendo DS)
  • My Japanese Coach (2008, Nintendo DS)
It's not a lot yet, but it takes time to get a lot of titles under your belt. I was lead programmer on My Chinese Coach and My Japanese Coach, so if you have any suggestions or complaints, feel free to discuss them here.

Speaking of My Japanese Coach, it's very encouraging to see the buzz it's receiving on forums around the internet. Chinese Coach is doing well in it's own right, but My Japanese Coach isn't even out yet, and it's ranked higher on than the Chinese version. So, let me know what you think of those games. If you have specific comments, or questions, I'm open to discussing as much as my boss will let me.

These games have been a lot of fun to work on. The DS is a pretty easy platform to work with, considering it's all done with C and C++. Unfortunately, I can't tell you about any future titles I may or may not be working on, but as soon as I can talk details (meaning, when future games are announced), I'll be sure to post them here.

I'm very impressed by My Japanese Coach. I hope it sells well enough to warrant a second iteration! It was about damn time someone came out with a Japanese training game.

Ubisoft released another title called My Word Coach, and a lot of people think My Spanish Coach is related. As far as I know, My Spanish Coach is the only Spanish game in the My Coach series.

I have been using My Chinese Tutor for a while now. And while I'd love some things to work better, it's been a huge help. Thanks for your work!
