Character Artist

David Mcnab has been a greatly reclusive Japanese animation artist for the last 15 years, but has recently sought the public eye with his own page on deviantART, under the assumed name of 'shenhua'. Having never had any teaching in the art of Japanese animation, he never stops trying to better his styles through assimilating some of the styles of his favourite artists. Some of these are Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, Range Murata, Masakazu Katsura, Kiyohiko Azuma and Ugetsu Hakua. Born and residing in Australia, David has lived both in America and Japan, and has moved around the east coast of Australia to live on 9 separate occasions. Currently an avid collector of Japanese anime figurines and anything Japanese-related, David has willingly accepted the role of cheif designer/artist of the emotion-filled game Broken Hearted.

Matthew E. Prindiville is an aspiring composer and musician from southern New Hampshire who is presently pursuing a degree in music-education at Plymouth State University. With a background in both classical and popular music, his compositions often try to incorporate elements of both aesthetics without being tied down to one specific genre. Though his music has been likened to the ambient side of Moby, he lists composers such as Leonard Bernstein, Danny Elfman, Henry Mancini, & Gustav Holst, and musicians/groups like Mice Parade, Charles Mingus, & Nirvana as some of his major influences. Although creating the music for Broken Hearted: A 9-11 Story was his first major, non-scholastically related composing project, he has released music under the aliases of Matt E.P. and Malachy Malarkey. He has a Myspace-Music page at where there are a few examples of some of his other work. He can be contacted through his Myspace page or at mattprindiville at with any questions, comments, or ideas for projects in the future. He welcomes any feedback anyone might want to give.
