Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore DS

The official game for the hit Warner Bros. movie


I created the high-level game concept, hired the developer, and supervised production of the Nintendo DS tie-in for the Hollywood film.

Inspired by the classic Blizzard title “The Lost Vikings”, I created a game concept in which the player would switch between the three heroes of the film (a cat, a dog, and a bird) to overcome each level’s challenges. I hired veteran team Engine Software and managed the on-time, on-budget development.

I worked closely with the filmmakers and with WB Games to create a fun and authentic extension of the film universe.
