Darius Drake's Blog


I'm a game developer, and I enjoy learning about what makes good games, too. My favorite overall "game making" company is Nintendo, and I especially like the Pikmin series. I'm a longtime Kirby fan, but anything that's unique and interesting will get my attention.

I'm looking forward to mastering the Animal Crossing Villager on Smash Bros U!
