About Big Picture Games
Big Picture Games was founded and formed out of a shared passion for the vision of an amazing one-of-a-kind massive multiplayer online game: Darkfall. The team is made up of dedicated and selfless volunteers from all over the globe, whom have all come together to help raise the franchise to new heights.
We’re MMORPG game development professionals by day, and passionate gamers by night. Read about some of the talented individuals developing Darkfall: Rise of Agon.
Andrew “Kimoshu” | CEO
Andrew brings over 4 years of management and leadership experience to the team and currently serves as the CEO and Lead Game Designer at Big Picture Games. He has a natural ability to connect both people and skills together, and this company would never be where it is today were it not for his desire to dream big about the future of Darkfall. In prior roles, Andrew was down in the trenches with his team, helping to bridge the gaps and connect the dots as a community manager and computer networking specialist. At the end of the day, Andrew is a family man at heart, and when he’s not busy charting the future course of our company he enjoys cycling and camping with his three children and wife in Ontario, Canada.
Brad "Dest Locke" | Director of Development
Brad brings over two decades of game design and development experience to the team. He has designed and developed numerous products across a variety of markets including Steam, arcade, mobile, casino, and the Unity Asset Store. For BPG, he helps keep the project on track overall as well as actively develop and world build. He also enjoys playing online poker and streaming on twitch, sometimes doing both while working! (twitch.tv/destlocke) When he’s not working in some capacity he enjoys relaxing and hanging out with his wife, wine tasting, traveling, writing, and playing cornhole whenever possible. The original Darkfall Online was his favorite game of all time, hands down.
Michael “Kasmos” | Director of Marketing | Community Manager
Michael has been a sales professional for 9 years, with a lot of experience coordinating marketing campaigns and dealing with contract negotiations. He has been following the Darkfall franchise since the early 2000s and is very excited to be a part of Darkfall: Rise of Agon. In his spare time he enjoys going to music venues, traveling the world and meeting new people.
