However, I always remember them. I tried to express the pangs of recollection and feelings of nostalgia I experience whenever I play them.”

Game: A Conscious Decision, {Cell}
Trade: Gamer turned hobby developer

Jack of several trades but master of none (cos there’s never an end to learning, is there? 🙃) I dabble in many random hobbies from writing to doodling and composing music, so I decided why not combine all these to make my own games! I love experimenting with new engines/cool mechanics and incorporating twists/hidden messages within my games heheh. I put lots of effort into each of my creations, so I really hope you enjoy them! Happy playing~ p.s. I also draw my own telegram stickers. The orange disguised in apple cosplay over here is one of them – I call him Appel.
