Hi, I'm Derrick.  I'm from the USA, and am coming to terms with the fact that I am a game designer and it is what I feel I must do.

I recently went back to school (changed my major field from engineering to game development/computer science) and am currently engaged in several projects that I am very excited about and can't wait to show you!

I do not have a website yet, but as soon as I make one (it is on my to-do list) I will post it on the forum so everyone can critique it and whatnot =)

I am elated to be part of this forum... I have been very disgruntled with the American games industry and have been having trouble finding where I "fit in", being someone who enjoys the experiences that interactive media can create, without needing it to be a "game".  I can say that I absolutely love Tale of Tales' work, and am proud to own a limited hard copy of The Path for PC.

The Path really was a "game changer" for me.  It was without a doubt the most immersive experience I have ever had (I played it for hours without realizing how engrossed I was), I truly felt as though I was in another world... similar to how audiences recently reacted to the Avatar movie.  I hope to be able to create similar experiences for those that see my work.
