Freshly returned from Focus on Learning’s DemoFest 2016, where I showcased my project, “NekroNomIcon: Story-Driven Mobile Game Developed with iSpring”, I put down some of my thoughts on how it went, what worked, and what didn’t. You can access this article on my blog, “The Technology of Learning” – http://instructional-design-specialist.blogspot.com/2016/06/lessons-learned-focus-on-learning.html.
Games, Sim, VR & More Using the video game engine, Unity3D, aNm can create custom 2D or 3D games, simulations, or other immersive environments.

Creating Art in Three Dimensions Whether you need photorealistic still images of everyday object or customized and fully textured and ‘rigged’ human characters, aNm can create them with artistic precision. For you indie filmmakers, consider the added visual depth by adding “CGI” – machinery, aircraft, vehicles or home/office equipment, humans, creatures…we do it all.
