Me Me Me Me

Welcome. I am Erik Hogan of Auckland, New Zealand, and Earok.Net is my personal site.

My primary hobby is game development. Over the past few years I have developed a number of well received freeware titles in a broad range of genres, including First Person Shooter, Platformer and Shoot Em Up.

I am also an active participant in the Auckland Game Developer's Meetup and the Playmaker NZ community.

Asides from game development, my other hobby is writing. I have maintained a long running blog as well as being a NaNoWriMo winner in 2009, and ScriptFrenzy winner in 2010 and 2011.

I hope you enjoy your stay. If you're a casual gamer, I recommend checking out The Kiwi's Tale. Otherwise, if you're more hardcore, Derelict might be of interest.
