Video games are my passion. I love talking about video games, analyzing video games, and creating video games. I truely believe that a necessary quality of video games, indeed all games in general, is that they promote critical thinking. When you decide which room to look in, where to aim your rifle, what play to call and what skill to level up, you are taking an evidence-based decision making approach. My hope is that I can make games that force the player to think, not just about the game itself, but their own lives and what they can do to increase their happiness.
