Ray Ardent: Science Ninja is a high speed platformer made in Flash and released through the Flash portal scene. As a developer, it represents a lot of firsts: It’s the first game I have made as an artist and/or programmer and it’s also the first Flash game I have ever made.

What Went Right:
The man responsible for the great music and sound fx is John Tennant. John and I worked together on Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, where he was the audio lead. John is a great friend and he was the first person I talked to about the game.
I’ve been a longtime fan of Anthony Carboni and his indie video podcast Bytejacker.
Being completely honest, I didn’t think Ray was worthy of Free Indie Rapid Fire, a regular segment where they showcase three different free indie games and viewers can vote and share their comments.
Since Ray is up against John Cooney’s and Nitrome’s latest games, I am expecting a SOLID third place finish, but heck, I’m just happy to be in the episode.
CONTEST! Anyone who dresses up like Ray Ardent and leaves a video (in character) vote at Bytejacker for either John Cooney or Nitrome’s game will get a free NRD shirt of their choice (shipping included) if their video makes in into the next episode.
