About Me

I'm Jonathan Rey Brooks a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design with a degree in Game Development and a strong passion for game design. For this reason in most, if not all of my projects, I have acted as both a designer and a scripter with the intent of paying close attention to the intersection of the two. My passion for this stems from how much it defines the way in which the player interacts with the world, an aspect so immeasurably important to creating the experiences in our uniquely interactive medium.
