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.

Our Team

We’re MMORPG game development professionals by day, and passionate gamers by night. Read about some of the talented individuals developing Rise of Agon.

Concepts & Modeling

Michael Tyers | 3D Modeler

Michael grew up playing games such as Quake, The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, and Ultima Online.
In 2009, whilst playing TES IV: Oblivion, Michael searched for "The Elder Scrolls Online" curious to see if anything was in development and found a single forum post likening Darkfall to Oblivion. After subscribing to Darkfall, Michael was instantly hooked.
Having created 3D models for mods using 3DS Max and eventually switching to Blender, Michael would later enrol in a course in Game Development, where he would continue to develop his art and coding skills, utilizing Blender, Substance Painter, Unity and Unreal Engine.
Michael has contributed both 2D and 3D art, sound effects and visual effects to Rise of Agon.
In his spare time, Michael enjoys team-based games, photography and playing guitar.

Sean "Demo" Clearman | 3D Modeler

Sean is a life long gamer who has many years of 3D modeling experience as both a hobby and a passion, teaching himself through videos and time. He joined the team at Big Picture Games with excitement as both he and his wife played the original Darkfall for many years. When he is not modeling or gaming, he enjoys rock hounding, shooting, and spending time with his family.

Roger Thomas | 3D Modeler

An avid MMO player, Roger joined the Big Picture Games team in June of 2019 to help rework the game's textures, environment, sounds and 3D models. Professionally, he works as a 3D Generalist and Sound Designer creating assets, animations and effects for architectural visualizations, digital marketplaces, video games and films.

He is also a retired USAF Cyberspace Operations Officer with over 20 years of Information Technology (IT) and aerospace experience.  During his career he earned a MS in IT Management Summa Cum Laude from Touro University, a BS in Computer Science from the University of Evansville, an AAS in Aircraft Technology from the Community College of the Air Force and a BA in 3D Computer Animation Summa Cum Laude from Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design.
