I am Frankie Hutzler! But you might know me as Macrobius. I do freelance concept art (pencil on paper) of characters for indie games and often offer my skills in writing and designing whenever necessary. I've done a lot of indie game development in the past. I've even managed other people's games and communities myself! Also, I am currently leading and managing my own small indie game development team which has recently just started the development of an unannounced PC game using the UDK. If you're looking for a indie game team to join, feel free to send me a message or email with samples of what you can do/have done in the past! Thanks and keep on gaming!!!

Macrobius @ Simple haus

I personally really liked the really awkward proportions of structures for the Empire in Warhammer.

Macrobius @ Why i should stand at this grass? Let's stomp it!

Love the trophies he hangs on his armor. Will they be animated when he moves/physX or will it be static? The rest looks insane. :D

I'm curious, is there a purchaseable estate/home within the province of Cyrodiil?

Good to see the WC3 modding community is still alive. :}

Macrobius @ What do you think about the mod so far?

The mod looks pretty good so far. Although, I'm not sure how "lore-friendly" it is. This is one of those mod projects I will likely give a try when it has covered the entire isle of Vvardenfell. Especially if it is compatible with mods like Tamriel Rebuilt, Morrowind Overhaul 3.0, and other big mods that are kind of a must these days to enjoy it. :P

Will you guys make a Star Wars themed mod for Star Citizen when the modding tools come out?

Macrobius @ Contagion - Happy Thanksgiving Media, Comic, and Giveaway!

The hand holding the shotgun by the pump could use some adjusting. (looks like it's clipping with the gun and just awkward looking in its current position

Aside from some small animation choppiness, the textures and game overall looks impressively well done so far.

Loved the mod and still play it from time to time. Looking forward to playing the standalone version. ;)

Macrobius @ An Introduction to TES Online

Graphics and style aren't bad, combat looks different, 3 faction PVP... is nothing like TES aside from the level design and story, but I'll play it just because it's different.

Hopefully this game won't have a subscription like Guild Wars 2, or else it won't have enough players to make the PVP balanced or fun.

Macrobius @ You want to design games in the future as...

AAA games these days are over-hyped, over-rated pieces of trash. They tend to succeed in the visual department, but fail miserably in more important aspects such as gameplay or even something as simple as actually fixing the issues with the game such as bugs.

Indie games know how to be creative and create fun new experiences. AAA games are too scared to take risks, so they make the same old stuff over and over with the only thing new being maps and the name of the game. :|

Macrobius @ MERP | Middle Earth Roleplaying Project

Signed the petition. I was #14905 I think. LIVE ON, MERP!

Hopefully this misunderstanding from Warner Bros (or at least, I hope this is all some terrible misunderstanding) will be cleared up in no time; as long as people sign the petition. It's like a 2 minute process to sign it, so yeah. I have no doubts the petition will go well enough. :]

Macrobius @ MERP C&D

You're not making any profit off of the mod's development, nor do you plan on making something that will earn profit for anyone after it's made. It's a god damn mod. How is this illegal or in violation of Warner Bros' terms?

Shame on you, Warner Bros.

Macrobius @ Elder Scrolls Online

From what I've seen and heard, it is going to be everything us Elder Scrolls fans don't want. No first person, tab targeting, actionbars on the screen with 500 abilities, players do not influence anything in the world, no player housing, no sleeping at inns, the environment is barely be interacted with, etc.

Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that a game is being made like DAoC with hardcore PVP/RVR. But why the hell did they have to do it under the Elder Scrolls IP? This may be the death of the Elder Scrolls series as we know it...

Macrobius @ The Music of Jeklynn Heights - Video Blog

Really good composer. Plans the purpose of the music and whatnot. Also, the final piece fits really well and is a great addition to the game itself. :]
