Tell me about yourselves.
“I’m a mathematical physics student, but game dev is one of my true loves. I taught myself to program when I was ten years old because I wanted to make videogames.”
“It turns out making videogames is hard, but I did learn to program! Discovering my sexuality and gender identity was much harder, and it’s an ongoing process. I learn every day, both about how to make videogames, and about myself.”
“I am a genderfluid, agender girl. This means that I *loosely* classify myself as female and like people using “she” pronouns, but some days I feel like I don’t want to be attached to any particular gender in any way. That’s what agender means to me, and on those days I prefer people to use “they” pronouns to describe me. My sexuality is a bit of a mess, but loosely I’m bisexual and grey ace, with a preference for femininity. I’m also demiromantic.”
“I’ve been working as an illustrator since 2005, I fell into gamedev in 2014, and I also work in IT support. My work-in-progress degree is a bachelor of computer science minoring in biomedical science and I’m going to major in cybersecurity!”
“I wanted to be a cardiothoracic surgeon straight out of highschool but ironically my many chronic illnesses and garbage doctors ruined that for me, so I explore my fascination with guts and science through macabre art, game development, and sci-fi worldbuilding.”
“I am an aromantic grey-asexual demiboy and when I do experience sexual attraction, I’d classify it as pansexual. Most of my identity is straightforward, but the aromantic component is complicated.I’m averted to special treatment and find the concept of romance suffocating. My pronouns are they/them.”
What are you working on at the moment?
“We made a game called Cowterpult! It’s a game for two players about competitively spreading disease by slingshotting cows at unsuspecting towns.”
“The above, plus Hyaline; a symbiotic survival game set on an alien planet- your goal is to survive by learning about the world around you. On one condition: you help the world survive, too.”
