As If Productions (AIP) is the web studio of Tod Foley, specializing in the development of custom online interactive systems.
Founded in 1991, AIP has produced immersive websites, virtual worlds, roleplaying games, CD-ROM games and live promotional events for clients including Comedy Central, 20th Century Fox Films, Sony/Epic Records, Times-Mirror Magazines, Walt Disney Records, Revelations Entertainment, Iron Crown Enterprises, The WELL and The Electronic Cafe International. No matter what type of interactive system you have in mind, we're here to bring it to life - from concept and development to webhosting and support.
The official website of the Sierra Club, Los Angeles Chapter, was designed by the developers at Zumwinkle.com, who brought As If Productions in to handle some of its advanced features. Built in Drupal, the site includes a variety of custom modules and jQuery scripts enabling club members and members of the public to stay up to date on the latest activities of the chapter and its branches.
Nir Tal is a master engineer of bike wheels for racers, and his builds are widely recognized for their quality and customization. The site itself is highly customized as well, because that's what I do :-). Built in Drupal, this user-friendly, mobile-friendly interface allows customers to specify every little detail of their optimal wheelset - from axle sizes and spoke patterns to custom colors and logo placement - and it's actually fun to use! Design by Brian Koester of crispelements, code by As If Productions.
Fictioneers are designers, facilitators and explorers of collaborative fictional spaces, otherwise known as "Roleplaying Games" and "Storygames." Fictioneers.net is a directory of the games they play, and discussions about the things they do. In addition to its massive database of indie games, the site has been expanded to include an advanced Forum for the discussion of roleplaying games, storygames, game design and theory. Are you a game designer, GM, or avid roleplayer? Come join the conversation!
The latest web-based release from As If Productions, ThisIsFractopia.com is the home base of the Fractopia Podcast: forecasting the facts of tomorrow through the fiction of today. In this series, AIP founder Tod Foley examines current trends and developments in technology and science fiction, in order to create realistic visions of our potential tomorrow. Readers and writers of near-future science fiction will find much to think about in these topical episodes and exclusive interviews.
Midnight Science Club is for anyone interested in science and related fields. It’s a club operated BY scientists and FOR scientists of all ages. As If Productions was brought in by the developers at Zumwinkle.com to add some fancy UI elements via jQuery, and to optimize the performance of this media-rich site.
Announcing my new website! I finally broke down and purchased a vanity domain, and I'm using it to separate my writing and editorial bits from the software development and interactive studio bits. And so, without further ado: TodFoley.com is the new site, where I'm available as always for all your writing and editing needs. I handle fiction, non-fiction, game designs, journalism and technical writing. Freelance creative gun for hire.
The astute will notice that the new site uses Wordpress. No, I'm not leaving the Drupalverse. It's because I've had a lot of WP-related gigs lately, and I wanted an excuse to play with it, so... there it is. If you're looking for writing, editing or game design, that's where you want to be. Web-based interactive development? That's still right here.
Support the game designs and theoretical work of As If Productions. Written especially for roleplayers, GMs, game designers, artists and neophiles who are interested in experimental applications of narrative engineering.
