    Experienced Games Designer and iOS Programmer

    United Kingdom - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 3

    I'm a games designer and programmer with 10 years experience making top end console games and mobile apps. I worked for Bizarre Creations as a games designer and main document architect for over 7 years, producing titles such as Project Gotham Racing 2, 3 and 4 and Blur. My main responsibilities where to write and maintain the design bible for each project, which was the go to resource for all design related information about the game. The document was used by up to 150 people in the team to make the actual game. I was also responsible for the creation of game levels and game modes inside each of the projects. I was in charge of the difficulty balancing of the game, utilising analytics and focus groups to hone each level in the game to its greatest potential. After leaving Bizarre Creations due to the closure of the studio I went to work in the mobile industry for a company called Moshen. Whilst at Moshen I was again responsible for the creation and maintenance of all app related documentation as well as becoming an experienced programmer. I worked on a number of applications in that capacity including apps for companies such as Breville and Brother. I was involved in a number of top applications, the most prominent of which being Darts Night where I was the lead designer and which achieved over 2 million downloads worldwide. Since the companies closure I have since turned to freelance work and have produced my own iOS applications which have been released on the App Store. These include The Great Big Rock Quiz, The Great Big World Football Quiz and Octogram.
