  • Paws and Tales Games New MMOG Website Launched

    Posted on June 4th, 2009 Nelson Bodnarchuk No comments

    I’ve been quite busy lately with my current project, developing the Paws and Tales Games MMOG Website. Based on Paws and Tales The Animated Series┬«, Paws and Tales Games aims to provide a fun, safe and educational place online for children and families.

    I’ve become more of a Product Manager at this stage in the game, no pun intended. With a new look and improved features such as; streaming video of the animated episodes, educational worksheets that parents and educators can go through with their kids, and easier access to some of the games within the MMOG. The team is also working to complete the new selection of in game avatars that users can choose from.

    With the new branding and a new marketing campaign in place I’m looking forward to spending more time focused on the product marketing side of the fence for a while.

    If you’re interested go check it out and let me know what you think of the site. I’m always interested in learning more about the overall user experience, game-play, and value that users would see in the site.

    The team that I worked with deserves credit for all of their hard work and help in the development of this product, which made my task managing the development of the product both easy and fun.

    Team Credits:

    NuLayer Inc., led by Mr. J. Brenner and Mr. P. Kieltyka, performed as the Back-End Team and did outstanding work in a short time frame.

    Cieo Creative Inc., led by Mr. J. Goodman and Ms. M. Plasterer, performed as the Flash Games Developer and played a key role in the Creative design of the over all game.

    IWD Canada Inc., led by Mr. K. White and Mr. B. Kumarasamy, provided the manpower for the new website design and blog for the site.

    “Paws and Tales Games” is currently online at: www.pawsandtalesgames.com

    CTS TV

  • Updated Services & Resume Page, New Release Version of Paws and Tales Games Website

    Posted on May 26th, 2009 Nelson Bodnarchuk No comments

    Just did some clean up on the Services and Resume pages while taking a quick break from the final prepping for a new release version of the current product that I’m managing. Look for a new design, branding and features at pawsandtalesgames.com, starting June 1st, 2009. Be ready for a drastic improvement in the look and feel of the site, while expecting the same great level of functionality. From the testing feedback that I’ve been receiving over the last few weeks it’s like night and day compared to the exiting Beta version of the site. Some of the new features in the Paws and Tales Games World include:

    • Updated artwork for both the website and MMOG.
    • Free Games page.
    • Streaming Episodes of the Paws & Tales Animated Series.
    • A What’s New” Blog.
    • “Questions for Cubs” worksheets that complement each episode.
  • Career Credentials

    Two goals of mine this year are to obtain the final bit of electrical design experience required to obtain my P.Eng and write the PMI PMP exam to obtain my PMP designation.

    I figure since my career has afforded me the opportunity to get this close to both of these “resume builders”, I may as well make an effort to add them to my portfolio of qualifications. Or more eloquently put “I should walk the walk if I’m going to talk the talk.

    Prediction: I see the next few months being dedicated to achieving these goals in my off hours.

  • Posted Resume Page

    Posted on March 24th, 2009 Nelson Bodnarchuk No comments

    My resume details are now posted to a new page, conveniently titled Resume, on this site. I figure since I spend the majority of my work day in front of a computer, most recently a MacBook Pro, I could keep a formal up-to-date archive of my career experience more easily. Experience being defined, in this case, as enough time to make mistakes and learn from them while celebrating the odd victory here and there.

    Shameless Plug: I’m always looking for interesting challenges to take on that will help better a company, non-profit, organization or community. The always evolving online resume will help future clients learn more about my background and how I can help their team achieve their goals.
