Bigpants Big Pants Depths TRS-80
Bigpants is Jim and Emilie McGinley.
We share the same last name, because we are married.
One of us wears pants... big pants. Bigpants?
Big pants is perhaps best known for our 1990 Comic
It's about a stick man who is happy because he wears big pants. Like all heros, he thrives in the face of no pants.
On March 2013, we're releasing Endlight
Otherwise known as End Light
We're quite proud of Endlight.
We're currently finishing 3D glasses game The Depths To Which I Sink
We are the official site of that wacky 3D red blue glasses Depths game.
. All good.
If you like games that require 3D glasses, you came to the right place.
At GDC 2012, Jim delivered a presentation Inspiration from the Trash
At the Game Developer's Conference 2012 TRS-80, the Trash-80 was fondly remembered and discussed.
