"George's passion, ideas and involvement with MotiveQuest has

marketing plans and team, to productizing our business and procedures, Red
Rocket has had an immediate and meaningful impact from day one. I highly
recommend Red Rocket. If you want to grow, strap on the Red Rocket.“

Tyler Spalding, Founder & CEO at StyleSeek 
"Red Rocket has been a great investor for our business and
vocal champion of our brand. As a proven entrepreneur himself, George has
provided valuable insights and recommendations on how to best build my
business. Red Rocket would be a great partner in helping build your
business.“

Seth Rosenberg, SVP at Camping World 
"Red Rocket helped us do a high level assessment of our
e-commerce efforts and assisted with the development of a digital strategy
and marketing plan. Red Rocket identified some immediate opportunities,
which we are implementing. I am pleased to recommend Red Rocket for your
e-commerce and digital marketing needs.“

Andrew Hoog, Founder and CEO at viaForensics 
"As viaForensics experienced significant growth, we recognized
the need for an experienced advisor with start-up chops who could help us
refine critical steps in our transition from a service company to a
product-based company. Red Rocket's expertise in growth planning including
organizational structure, financial modeling and competitive analysis were
instrumental in refining our strategy. He helped facilitate key decisions
the management team needed to make in order to take the company to the
next level. We are very pleased with Red Rocket's contributions to
viaForensics and highly recommend his services to other start-ups facing
similar growth.“

Jerry Freeman, Founder & CEO at PaletteApp 
“Red Rocket has been a key instigator in helping raise funds for
PaletteApp. They have helped me tremendously in realizing what an investor
wants to see and how best to present it. George has great experience and
understanding of how to fund and launch a new company. We feel fortunate
that he has thrown his hat into our arena.”

Scott Skinger, CEO at TrainSignal  "Red Rocket helped us in a variety of ways,
from financial modeling to introductions to lenders. Their biggest win was
helping us do preliminary investigative research on one of our
competitors, that ultimately sparked a dialog that lead to the $23.6MM
sale of our business to that company. We couldn't be more happy with Red
Rocket's involvement with our business. Overall, a great advisor to have
in your corner."

NATIONAL BESTSELLER

Developing video games—hero's journey or fool's errand? The creative and technical logistics that go into building today's hottest games can be more harrowing and complex than the games themselves, often seeming like an endless maze or a bottomless abyss. In Blood, Sweat, and Pixels, Jason Schreier takes readers on a fascinating odyssey behind the scenes of video game development, where the creator may be a team of 600 overworked underdogs or a solitary geek genius. Exploring the artistic challenges, technical impossibilities, marketplace demands, and Donkey Kong-sized monkey wrenches thrown into the works by corporate, Blood, Sweat, and Pixels reveals how bringing any game to completion is more than Sisyphean—it's nothing short of miraculous.

Taking some of the most popular, bestselling recent games, Schreier immerses readers in the hellfire of the development process, whether it's RPG studio Bioware's challenge to beat an impossible schedule and overcome countless technical nightmares to build Dragon Age: Inquisition; indie developer Eric Barone's single-handed efforts to grow country-life RPG Stardew Valley from one man's vision into a multi-million-dollar franchise; or Bungie spinning out from their corporate overlords at Microsoft to create Destiny, a brand new universe that they hoped would become as iconic as Star Wars and Lord of the Rings—even as it nearly ripped their studio apart.

Documenting the round-the-clock crunches, buggy-eyed burnout, and last-minute saves, Blood, Sweat, and Pixels is a journey through development hell—and ultimately a tribute to the dedicated diehards and unsung heroes who scale mountains of obstacles in their quests to create the best games imaginable.
