Jake Romigh's Blog

 
I am currently a software engineer who pursues writing and game design in his spare time. It has always been a pursuit of mine to design game entertainment.
I enjoy writing fictional pieces with a emphasis on humor and rich environments. In game design, I like to examine proven principles and see how they will develop in the future. I also am very interested in online player interaction, where design must be constructed so that every players can have varied play styles but not at the expense of others' experiences.
