As If Productions (AIP) is the studio of writer, publisher, game designer & programmer Tod Foley, specializing in game design, web development and interactive systems.
Founded in 1991, AIP has developed immersive websites, virtual worlds, roleplaying games, CD-ROM games, viral marketing 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 design and development to webhosting and support.
In 2010, Open Magnet Charter School made the jump to Drupal in a big way, and AIP helped them do it. Along with a new visual design by crispelements, the site features an invisible-but-complex infrastructure of roles and editorial access controls allowing parents, teachers and school administrators to connect in useful and dynamic ways.
Legacy West is an exclusive, upscale sober residency located in Santa Monica, California. Their new website is the latest incarnation of our Axis CMS system, backing up a classic and soothing design by Brian Koester of crispelements. The site also features a nifty custom slideshow we built using using the jCarousel jQuery plugin by Jan Sorgalla.
W2W Records is the new record label headed by Frank Thomas - yes, that Frank Thomas - and their debut presence page on the web is a simple but effective sampling of the musical offerings they already have in the works. With the handy jCarousel jQuery plugin by Jan Sorgalla, a fresh design by the ever-resourceful folks at Cerebral Itch and a handful of social media tools, we launched this website in record time.
Pink Piggy™ is a mobile coin-changing and converting service that makes it easy for you to turn your loose change into money you can use. Their website, designed for presence, promotion and sales, uses our Axis CMS software for its speed, flexibility, and ease of editing. Site design and production by Paul Chamberlain of CerebralItch.
When the owners of DrinkTown wanted to expand their services to include automated promotion of bar specials in the Chicago area, they contacted AIP. We created a custom Drupal Module for them called "Tweet Cron", which uses input from bar owners and customers to keep Chicago bar patrons informed of daily specials via automated Twitter messages, or "tweets".
Exit Consulting Group provides services for individuals considering exit strategies for their businesses. Their new website, designed by Paul Chamberlain of CerebralItch, uses our AXIS CMS system to allow quick and easy updates of content and marketing information.
Ten25Enterprises wants to make online dating fun again. That's why they came up with the concept for MyDealbreakers.com: a unique online dating site that cuts to the chase, letting you look for potential partners by specifying what you aren't looking for. The site functions as a simple matching game, challenging you to match "Dealbreakers" with the person who made them.
The underlying game engine was developed by As If Productions, using a combination of Drupal 6 modules and custom PHP scripts.
The official website of the Las Vegas-based television program of the same name, the HomeOwner Talk website is a customized installation of AXIS CMS. Outfitted with the ever-flexible Shadowbox media player, here friends of the program can watch archived episodes and submit their own homeowner questions for consideration in future episodes. Design by Casey Wiesel of Kaleidos Creative.
