Ben Ruiz

Phoenix, AZ

I'm the co-founder of Team Colorblind, a game development studio in Phoenix, AZ. We're currently developing Aztez, of which I am the sole artist and combat designer.

I frequently write about combat design at the Aztez game devblog, and provide game combat consultation as well.

I've been an Independent Games Festival Judge since 2006, and was a member of the IGF Visul Art Jury in 2010 and 2011.

I teach level design and game production throughout the year at local universities and technical schools.

I was the Art Director at Flashbang Studios from 2008 to 2011, where we developed the remarkable library of experimental games at
