My name is Michael. I am a gamedev student by day, and quite a lot of other things by night. I’m a programmer at Trixel Creative, a LittleBigPlanet level creator, a YouTuber, and an LBP Union R&D leader.

And that’s completely okay. Some people will tell you that learning it is the greatest thing you…

Game ideas I can’t make

I have a lot of ideas for games that I either want to make or that I’ve tried to make in the past. Unfortunately, for one reason or another, I can’t feasibly make them on my own. Nonetheless, they’re still ideas I have and I want to get them out there. Maybe they’ll seem cool to you. First Responder: The Game That is…exactly what it sounds like. I’m a really big fan of a TV show called 9-1-1, and its spin-off, 9-1-1: Lone Star. They’re shows where each episode is a series of 911 calls and the series follows the…
