Located in Pittsburgh, PA, ice cream breakfast
is an indie game development and game research effort I started in late 2006.
About Nathan McKenzie
Before ice cream breakfast, I worked in senior game programming and game design
positions at both Raven Software
and Rainbow Studios
, on titles including
Soldier of Fortune, Quake 4, Heretic 2, and Take No Prisoners, amongst others. I focused especially on special effects, artificial intelligence, weapon systems, player controls,
shader programming, and game balancing. Following that, I become involved with education researchers as an affiliate of
, helping make educational game prototypes for Dr. David Shaffer and doing FX work on
Filament Games' Resilient Planet. I also spent a year, from 2005 to 2006, evaluating the Open Source game engines for the U.S. military. I've spoken at both GDC
and the Games, Learning, and Society conference.

I can be contacted at nathanATicecreambreakfast.com... but be forewarned - the main way I get so much development done is by being a lousy e-mail respondent. Sad but true.
