In 1997, then 17-year-old Wolf and Adam Maloy took over production on DragonSpires, a community-driven multiplayer game initiated by Dragon's Eye Productions.[1] Wolf served as creative administrator of the game, in charge of producing a storyline and pixel art, among other duties, until 2002. In a much smaller capacity, Wolf also assisted independent game maker Derek Yu with games such as Mean Cuisine and I'm O.K - A Murder Simulator,[2] which was an ultra-violent game based on Jack Thompson's "A Modest Proposal".

DragonSpires later served as the inspiration for Wolf's browser-based multiplayer game, Scroll Wars, which was opened to the public in 2006. One year later in 2007, Wolf also opened Hell Rising, a zombie vs. vampire vs. survivor browser-based game inspired by and building upon its predecessor, Urban Dead.

Christopher maintains a YouTube gaming channel under the name Tormental, and has worked on creative material for LordMinion777.


In 2008, Wolf authored a well-received[3] installment in Josh Howard presents: Sasquatch published by Viper Comics. He also authored a graphic novel retelling the 1922 film Nosferatu for a modern audience[4] and a creator-owned series titled Love Monster.[5]

Additionally, he wrote, illustrated, and created the webcomic Escapeman[6] for ten years and wrote reviews for Pop Thought.[7] His fan page for The Atomics by Mike Allred also appeared in Wizard Magazine.

Wolf was named Marketing Director of Viper Comics in late 2010.[8] His duties for Viper have included creating a viral marketing website for Inspector Gadget.


Wolf was a voice actor for the English dub of the Anime series You're Under Arrest![9][10] and appeared on episodes of Dawson's Creek, most notably as a sideburned student in an episode spoofing The Blair Witch Project.[9]


Wolf runs an online horror story forum called "Slimebeast," going under the same pen name, and is known for writing the following Creepypasta stories:

  • Funnymouth - A young man comes across a mysterious forumgoer named "Funnymouth" who appears to take an interest in him. A companion site exists on the Internet based off the main character's chat server (although the display notes it is under maintenance). Refreshing the page will redirect you to an image of a giant pixelated face with a limp tongue slogging out (all developed by repeating text of Funnymouth). It is assumed in-story this is Funnymouth itself.
  • Whimsywood - A boy discovers a theme park called Whimsywood that hides a vicious secret that bodes ill for visiting children.
  • Lost Episodes - A young man reflects on his fleeting childhood friendship with a boy named Sid who had created several re-cut tapes of popular features, which progressively become more grim and violent. Returning to him later on, Sid is revealed to have killed his own family and retreated into a fantasy video world of his own, much to the main character's horror. A sequel story called Sid's Video involves another person discovering Sid's videotape, as it unleashes havoc on the man's personal video collection.
  • Abandoned by Disney - Inspired by the story of the abandoned River Country Disney park and Discovery Island (Bay Lake) locations, the story covers the dangers behind an abandoned Jungle Book-themed resort named Mowgli's Palace. The follow-up Room Zero discusses the stories behind employees connected with the Disney Corporation; including tourists wearing Disney-themed gas masks and a bomb shelter located deep beneath the park. Another follow-up, Corruptus, delves into further detail on the origins of the bizarre events and locations and how they are seemingly linked to the "wish upon a star" sentiment spread throughout Disney media itself. A prequel story also exists called A Few Suggestions, which is written in recollections of notes from a suggestion box in Mowgli's Palace (and also reveals the supposed origin of the color-inverted Mickey Mouse costume from the original story's climax).

List of indie game developers

This is a list of independent video game developers, individuals or teams which produce indie games but are not owned by or receive significant financial backing from a video game publisher. Independent developers, which can be single individuals, small groups, or large organizations, retain operational control over their organizations and processes. Some self-publish their own games while others work with publishers.

Nosferatu (comics)

Nosferatu is a graphic novel based on the 1922 silent film of the same name, modernized by Christopher Howard Wolf and Justin Wayne, and published by Viper Comics. Among the changes made to modernize the story is the revelation that female protagonists Tommy and Elle are in a same-sex relationship.

Weird fiction

Weird fiction is a subgenre of speculative fiction originating in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. John Clute defines weird fiction as a "Term used loosely to describe Fantasy, Supernatural Fiction and Horror tales embodying transgressive material". China Miéville defines weird fiction thus: "Weird Fiction is usually, roughly, conceived of as a rather breathless and generically slippery macabre fiction, a dark fantastic (“horror” plus “fantasy”) often featuring nontraditional alien monsters (thus plus “science fiction”)." Discussing the "Old Weird Fiction" published in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Jeffrey Andrew Weinstock says, "Old Weird fiction utilises elements of horror, science fiction and fantasy to showcase the impotence and insignificance of human beings within a much larger universe populated by often malign powers and forces that greatly exceed the human capacities to understand or control them." Weird fiction either eschews or radically reinterprets ghosts, vampires, werewolves, and other traditional antagonists of supernatural horror fiction. Weird fiction is sometimes symbolised by the tentacle, a limb-type absent from most of the monsters of European folklore and gothic fiction, but often attached to the monstrous creatures created by weird fiction writers such as William Hope Hodgson, M. R. James, and H. P. Lovecraft. Weird fiction often attempts to inspire awe as well as fear in response to its fictional creations, causing

commentators like Miéville to say that weird fiction evokes a sense of the numinous. Although "weird fiction" has been chiefly used as a historical description for works through the 1930s, the term has also been increasingly used since the 1980s, sometimes to describe slipstream fiction that blends horror, fantasy, and science fiction.

Wolf (name)

Wolf is a name that is used as a surname, given name, and a name among Germanic-speaking peoples: see Wulf.

Names which translate to English "wolf" are also common among many other nations, including many Native American peoples within the current or former extent of the habitat of the gray wolf (essentially all of North America).
