A bit off topic but, is that your custom game engine?

Or is there a program that can simulate your pixel sprites to run around?

I'm not really fluent with English but I hope it's comprehensible enough to what I mean.

You recommended him in 2011 on linkedin. Because of that recommendation I paid him upfront.
Because of his profile in Linkedin specially with his connections to Wayforward, some people will get lured to him/go to him for commissions (the company has a very good reputation for retro and pixel artists with skills at high caliber)

Looks like Josh Astorian is back to his old tricks.
A resume posted on TigSource this summer:
And still ripping off people by using his linkedin recommendations:


Joshua Astorian: 2D Game Artist with Licensed NDS & GBA titles experience

Hello Tigsource!

Sorry for the long title- I tried to be brief but eye catching. Tongue

I have 5 years experience creating graphics for licensed GBA & mobile phone games and about 3 years in the Nintendo DS industry.
LinkedIn page (includes work history and references):

And aren't this guys who came forward on this thread victims? just like JForceGames who made that recent post.
His friends posting here saying what he is doing is wrong and Even Adam Tierney the Designer/director at WayForward Technologies said this.
That's what is of course so frustrating. Josh is one of the most talented character pixel artists I've ever seen. It's just a shame he muddies his talent and destroys his reputation with scams such as these. :(
All of this are proofs, so where is the slander in that?
I've seen this thread years ago and kept myself from posting until now because god damn, nothing has changed after 6 years.

He is. As far as I can tell, he does contract work for them whenever they are in need of pixel work. The most recent game seems to be Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark (summer 2014). Adam Tierny (who directs some of the Wayforward games) already posted above that he's been working with them for years and they've always been super happy with him.

I love Wayforward, but allowing a known scammer associate with them, giving him gigs/projects is very disappointing. All those people (the latest one JForceGames) who got victimized by Josh and god knows how many are they From 2009? to the present and he gets away with it.

He is also using Wayforwards background to lure potential future clients/victims.
This is just ridiculous

Is this for real?

Got this from his Linkedin profile
Graphic Artist
WayForward Technologies
July 2005 Present (10 years 4 months)Valencia, CA (Remote, freelance)

I work for Wayforward, creating sprite designs, animations, and backgrounds for licensed NDS and GBA titles.

Is he still working for WayForward Technologies, even with his scamming history?

Hm..this is a bit strange. I Assume by now that some of you guys have made your own games and partnered with a programmer for ios or android app and earned some good cash along with it. I mean the skill level of the vets here are pretty high and I believe a LOT of gamers want some of those pixel goodness with their roguelike, tower defense games, kairosoft type, terraria type sandbox game etc.  Then kickstarted along with reddit/gaf's exposure, I imagine it will be amazing. Yeah some of you might say I'm probably dreaming but this sure is possible with all the talent I've seen here.

I haven't played any game this year.. Then I notice skyrim, it's flooding reviews and initial walkthroughs vids.

Looks awesome, tempting.. but you might as well say goodbye to your real life :lol:
I'll get it next year when I have some time  :-\

The art looks nice, though is the game design excellent? Hope they hired a Japanese action game designer.

What does this suppose to mean? lol
"As long it's Japanese, It's Kakkoii!"  :P
