Adam Bishop's Blog
Adam is the creator of the independent experimental game Time Flows, But Does Not Return and has taken part in the Experimental Gameplay Project. He has previously worked in the game industry in Montreal, but is now a programmer in another industry. While his formal education is in the history of 20th century international relations, he has been making games in some form or other (board games, card games, video games) for most of his life and it's a field he'll continue to be a part of. He currently has multiple projects in the works, which may make all of them less likely to ever see the light of day. If you want to get in touch with him, you can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
