What do you like most about creating games?

It's all about creating a world and seeing it in action, seeing the interactions between game elements and players unfold by the rules and conventions that I helped conceive.

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

I have four completed projects under my belt, and have a couple of prototypes for larger-scale projects. For many years prior, I studied game design and development by playing, analyzing, and hacking many games, as well as creating numerous tech demos.

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

I would love to have one of my projects achieve enough success to allow me to focus on game development as a full-time pursuit.

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

I like designing the mechanics of games, as well as implementing those mechanics in code. I also like to do level design.


I am an experienced software developer who originally got into the trade because of a desire to create games. Over the past four years, I have created and self-published six games under my Smiling Cat Entertainment label.
