What do you like most about creating games?

Finding the particular psychological tick that makes people want to play a game. What is it about the game that makes it fun? How do you make a mechanic that is fair but also simulates the theme you're building in the game (

How would you describe your level of experience in game development?

Video game, nothing other than alpha and closed beta testing, however I have also worked as a deveoper of board games, RPGs, traditional card and TCG games. Game design theory and philosophy for the last 15+ years

Is game creation something you do for fun, or is it more of a professional interest? Please describe.

I'm semi-professional in game development, I do volunteer work for a board game distributor and travel to various game conventions every year.

What part of game dev are you most into? Programming, animating, AI, 3D modeling, marketing, etc?

Design philosophy
