Brian Applegate's Blog


Hello, my name is Brian. I'm a game developer always looking for a unique challenge to continue to improve and contribute to the video game industry. I lean towards producing video games, however I like to dabble in design and programming with game jams and individual projects.

I recently graduated from SMU Guildhall with Master's degree in Interactive Technology. I specialized in Production with a minor in Level Design. I previously studied at Oklahoma State University and acquired a Bachelor's of Science in Computer Science.
