Marty Newcomb: Raising My Superkid!

Raising My SuperKid

Name: Marty Newcomb

Company: Social Media Applications

Profession: Game Designer

Favorite Classic Game: Ultima VII: The Black Gate

Quote: Ultima VII (including its follow-up, The Serpent Isle) was one of the first games I remember playing where you could do almost anything in the world that you wanted to. It was enormous, with seemingly hundreds of unique characters, and you could do nearly anything, including making bread from scratch. Add on to that a dark storyline beginning with a gruesome murder, and I was hooked.

Bio: I am a 7 year veteran game designer and have worked on over a dozen shipped titles, including Death Jr. 2: The Root of Evil, Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet, and Where the Wild Things Are.

Project: Raising My SuperKid !

Stan Lee

Project Info: Raising My SuperKid! is a game where you raise and train your own super-powered heroes. Along the way, you’ll play with them, watch them grow, discover their personalities and powers, so that one day they’ll grow up and take on a life of fighting crime. You’ll build a home for them to live in, take them out around the city of SuperTown, and help out the eccentric citizens. There are toys, training equipment, clothes, and food that you can use to create your own experience. And, as you play, you’ll be helping others, thanks to the involvement of organizations like the Stan Lee Foundation.
