Key titles – many, many obscure titles, designed primarily for indi/non-gamer market.

Details – Indi-game designer currently based in New York working at his company – Gamelab (co-founded with Peter Lee)

Interesting facts – Appears to be outspoken gamemaker (perhapse artist…) “I am a very active member of the International Game Developers Association, chairing the Academic / Student Relations Committee and serving on the IGDA Developer Awards Committee. Through the IGDA, I have helped organize events that bring together game scholars and educators with game designers and developers. I also was the director of RE:PLAY, a series of earlier events sponsored by Eyebeam that had similar aims. I serve on the editorial board of Game Studies and on the advisory boards of many organizations as diverse as Games for Change, the NYC Tech Survey, and the ArtCenter’s Media Design Brain Trust. I have worked with the Electronic Software Association to combat anti-games legislation, and in general I try to stir things up for the better whenever I can.”
