I'm an indie developer from Manchester. I won Ludum Dare 28's innovation category with Rude Bear Resurrection, and I'm making that into a full game. I'm a serial game jammer (Every Ludum Dare since 30, every GGJ since 2014, EGX Rezzed's jam in person etc.), and I've done a lot of shows, Tokyo Game Show, EGX etc. etc.
My games have been featured in various publications (The Guardian, PC Gamer, Rock Paper Shotgun, TheSixthAxis, The AV Club etc.)
I also have a BSc (Hons) in Physics from the University of Manchester.
