Software Engineer and Game Developer
My name is Dan and I'm a software engineer and game developer. I've always loved tinkering with computers and playing video games, and those two things were what led to me completing a degree in games programming from 2013 to 2016. Since 2016 I've been working professionally as a full-stack software engineer while working on game-related projects in my spare time. My long term goal is to publish my first complete game, something which I am actively working on.
Games I enjoy
I enjoy a wide array of games, but my favourite games tend to be either very narrative-focused games (this includes both linear story games and CRPG's with lots of branching dialogue) or systems driven immersive sims. Bonus points if a game is both! I also really love post-apocalyptic settings for some reason. Some of my favourite games (in no particular order) are:
Pillars of Eternity
Half Life 2
The Last of Us
Mass Effect 1
Knights of the Old Republic
Platforms I play on
You'll mostly find me playing on PC, but I own a lot of consoles as well. In particular I own a Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch to give me access to platform exclusives, but I own lots of older consoles as well including an NES, Megadrive, Playstation 2, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, etc.
