Nicholas Behrens's Blog
My name is Nick and I'm part of a very small indie game dev team called From Nothing Game Studios. In October 2012, we released our first game, GravBlocks in Google Play for Android devices.
I have a Bachelor's degree in game design, as well as AAS degrees in art and animation. Basically, if it has to do with gaming, I'm interested in doing it, and love conceptualizing ideas (have about 20+ ideas/design documents in some form of being written up), creating graphics, characters, stories, and game worlds, as well as writing. My only real weakness in game design is actual programming, but it's one of those things I'm eager to learn more about so as to expand my skillset (and level up in reality).
I have also worked in some light freelance capacities over the years creating a couple logos or graphic design pieces, as well as publishing a short story on Amazon's Kindle service, and another "micro" story for a European horror magazine.
I'm also a huge game collector with a collecting amassing over 40 individual consoles and several duplicates, with a collection spanning 1000 games ranging from the original Atari 2600 (6-switch version) to the Virtual Boy to the Wonderswan to the Wii U.
Favorite games and franchises: Eternal Darkness, Metroid (except Other M), Resident Evil, Contra, BioShock, Gears of War, Kirby, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, latter-day Fallout, Xenoblade Chronicles, and many more.
