My name is Eric Heitman, I'm a game developer currently living in California. I've always been something of a jack of all trades. Art lead, sprite animator, and game designer are just a few of the positions I've held over the last 15 years. I love to take on new challenges and I'm always volunteering to try my hand at anything others are finding difficult. As a producer of mine once put it, the biggest challenge she faced scheduling my time was in remembering that, "Eric can do anything, but he can't do everything."
I grew up around the business, my dad was a game programmer, and game development has been part of my life since I was a kid. In 1994 I started my career in the game industry as a freelance artist. Since then, I've shipped approximately 20 titles for some of the top publishers in the business. At companies like Backbone Entertainment and Griptonite Games I worked with some of the top licenses in entertainment, adapting them into games for the PC, the Game Boy Color, the Game Boy Advance, the Nintendo DS, and the Xbox 360 and PS3.
The links below will take you to my game history and samples of my work. I hope that you'll find this site informative and maybe a little fun.
