Josh Sutphin's Blog
I'm Josh Sutphin and I'm an indie game developer! I was previously the lead designer of Starhawk and creator of Fail-Deadly. I'm working on a new game which will be announced a little later this year.
I'm also available on a contract basis for game design consulting and Unity project development.
You can see all my video game work here, and my writing work is over here.

On paper, I 'd be inclined to agree with you. But in practice, having spent several years of my life working in an environment in which every one of my design decisions was questioned, second-guessed, and debated to the point of absurdity, I 'm gonna have to side with the ...
