About me

I am a programmer, artist and it-support tech guy, but most of all im a indie game developer.
It is my passion and the one thing i truly want to do, i have been working on my games for 4+ years.
I have learned a lot through the process, and i generally work alone.
I have some connection's, and i outsource some of my workload, in order to be able to produce a better game faster.
I have a official web page but i generally update most on indiedb, if you wanna follow my work.
The game has not finished development yet, but it is scheduled to be released either as full version or on early access around late August.
I promise to deliver a unique terrifying game & have high hopes for Deep Rest!
