Nathan MartzPop Culture Lecture Series: Nathan Martz

Mon, Feb 6
Programming, Story and Video Game Design; 3:30pm, Commons Lecture Hall
Discerning Video Games as Popular Culture; 7pm, Commons Lecture Hall

Nathan Martz is the Project Lead on Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster at Double Fine Productions, an independent developer in San Francisco, where he is hard at work making the dreams of children around the world come true. Before spending all his waking hours thinking about how to bring a monster storybook to life, Nathan was the Lead Programmer on Brutal Legend, a heavy-metal action dramedy released last October on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Nathan came to Double Fine after a stint at as a Technical Art Director and later as a Gameplay Programmer LucasArts, where he worked with "top men" on Star Wars: Bounty Hunter and Star Wars: Republic Commando. Nathan is a passionate believer that game development can and should reach wider audiences, and is constantly in search of opportunities to make games that express the widest possible range of experiences and emotions.
