I’m Ben and I am a game designer, scripter and system’s designer. I have loved games ever since my grandparents got my brother and me a Nintendo Entertainment System when we were little. We would take turns playing Super Mario Bros all day. Since then I have been hooked on playing and making video games. I mostly work in Unity and Unreal 4 but I like the challenge of learning a new engine.
Some of my favorite games are The Last of Us, Red Dead Redemption, Journey, The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time, Mario Kart, Counter Strike, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, and any game made by Blizzard.
