What types of games do you like to make? What type do you play if any?

I've mostly only built small mechanics-centric action games, due to the scale restrictions of working alone, but with infinite time I'd rather be building huge, sprawling adventures in the vein of Zelda or Final Fantasy. I'll play anything with good art or solid design. Favorites include Ico, Twlight Princess, Mirror's Edge, Super Hexagon, and Smash Bros Melee (Brawl ruined everything).

Do you make games full time or part time?

Part time at present.

What skills do you have pertaining to game development? (Programming languages, artistic talents, animation, game design, etc...)

Art and code. Particular interests in 2D environment art and computer vision.

If you are not making or playing a game, what do you do with your time? What other hobbies or activites do you particapate in?

Non game-related art, Lego stuff, but really gamedev is like 99% of my "hobby" time right now.


Art guy with a CS degree for some reason. Currently developing Aerobat (­). Moved to the Chicago area last year; mostly looking for social interaction outside of work.
