Title: Hello!
Post by: Tyler Snell on October 26, 2012, 09:40:15 am
Hey there, my name is Tyler and I'm a fledgling developer.
I recently graduated with a degree in Game Art, and before that I studied architecture for a year and half (I had planned my whole life to be an architect).
My architectural background has had a big influence on my design philosophy, and is probably what led me here. My main interests lie in creating compelling virtual spaces overlaid with stories, utilizing minimalism and abstraction in various ways.

Here's my blog and portfolio site, if anyone is interested!

Hello and welcome to the forums  :)

I just played Katabasis, it's pretty good - very atmospheric with a Dear Esther-y vibe. I really liked the environmental storytelling, but there were a few parts early on where I almost didn't feel enough incentive to keep playing - I could have done with a bit more drawing in - but as I got further in I was absorbed (when I wasn't lost). It also didn't run too well on my laptop, it seems to require a pretty powerful machine.
