My name’s Phil, aka @biggerplay

I’ve been an indie game developer for over 10 years, before that I worked as a Flash designer/developer creating advergames/banners for various brands.

phil2015I’ve created from scratch many games, mostly web, but more recently mobile and desktop. I have lots of experience prototyping, designing, creating game art and developing games.

I would say my main skills are coming up with gameplay/design ideas. I’m half decent at art so I can visualise those ideas fairly well.

I’ve also got some interests.

Apps, Lord of the Rings, Atari, Kindle, Ophelia by Sir John Everett Millais, HP Lovecraft, Pixel graphics, Walking dead (graphic novel and TV show), Biscuits, strange words, startups, Cooking, iOS, The weather, travelling, my gf, London, my websites, the paranormal, books, Game of Thrones, Old film stars, The world cup and Euros (when they are on), Making money, losing money, Marvel, DC, Neil Gaiman, Films (pretty much any films, but mostly supernatural, fantasy sci-fi), tennis, Call of Duty, Physics, Cosmology, Biology, Philosophy, Sociology, Steampunk!, Writing, Artificial intelligence, Quantum computing, Dinosaurs, TED talks, David Icke, Any supernatural/fantasy/sci-fi TV show, or any cool TV show (Supernatural, Homeland, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Da Vinci’s demons, Grimm, Leftovers, Arrow/Flash, Elementry), Sketching, Ebay.

 

I’m currently updating this blog, all should be sorted by Jan 2016.
