I'm Howard, and I lead an indie game studio in NYC called Muse Games. We are the team behind Guns of Icarus, a multiplayer airship combat game in a Steampunk post-apocalyptic world on Steam. We're current working on Guns of Icarus Alliance and Hamsterdam. We develop our games using the Unity game engine.
