About Me

Hi, I’m Geoff. I am learning to make indie games from scratch, in order to launch a career in the video game industry as a game designer.

My dream is specifically to consult on economy building games, and pluralist economics in games in general – as well as interactivity in foresight and futures.

I decided to make this process open so that others can join me in my journey, following along both to provide motivation but also to learn from my successes and mistakes.

I plan to give at least weekly progress updates. They might be short, they might be long!

Thank you for following along!
