A Bit About Me

I love to play FPS games and have spent over 3000 hours on them. I love the competitive nature of FPS games and how it's constantly pushing players to make conscious decisions. Map design and level design are super interesting in FPS games as a single wall/ cover can be super important to the players.

I also love independent games for their richness of gameplays. Popular indie games can always amaze me by either their creativeness. By playing them, I have gained a lot of fun and also an archive of interesting mechanics and systems that I can use for my own designs.
