James is an artist and trained illustrator, with a skill for interesting character designs. He is currently learning to translate his painting and drawing skills to digital art and sprites.
He also has a love for engineering, both in games and real-life. He proved this when customising and improving his gaming PC, which is now partly made from Lego. He does not recognise Edge as Emperor.
Game Design, Art, Brains
Adam is a trained artist as well as an experienced programmer. He is currently combining his skills and working towards a PhD in Visual Analytics. He still finds time in his schedule to join us for game jams, and brings his PhD-level brains and an understanding of mathematics.
One of his interests is the use of narrative in games, and the potential applications of narrative visualisation techniques in other media.
Official Cat, Head of Sales
Our official cat is called Darwin, and he is a real live cat. He is named for the great Charles Darwin, but has yet to evolve beyond licking himself or walking into walls.
His main duties involve sleeping, batting things with his paw and general cat stuff.
Sometimes he’ll pose for a photo, and will annoy James by getting more attention than the game’s artwork.
Game Design, Music, Website
Founder and self-proclaimed Emperor. Called by his middle name Edge, due to being one of the two Adams in the team. Edge is his real middle name.
When not explaining his name to people, he writes game music, makes prototypes and has ideas. One day he hopes to turn these ideas into real games.
He also maintains the website and handles communication, mainly during game jams.

Latest News - Spring/Summer 2017
Winter Achievements Over the Winter period we worked on 5 major things, which got a bit crazy. We continued working on our 2 ongoing projects, we submitted a game to the Pixel Horror Jam, we made something for Ludum Dare, we hosted our own Game Jam called Finally Finish Something, and lastly we made a game to submit to our very own FFS Jam.
Plans for Spring/Summer The madness over the past few months has been an enjoyable ride, and we’ve got a lot of great things done, but we’re looking to be a bit more focused over the course of Spring/Summer 2017. With rumours of Steam Greenlight being replaced by Steam Direct, it looks like publishing to Steam would be within the realms of possibility, so we are now working on a single project for the next 4 months. That project is InfiniQuest, a much expanded version of our 2014 experiment. Hopefully we should be in a position to show something in June.
Game Jams We’ve now completed and submitted our Ludum Dare entry, which was our 15th in a row! That’s now 4 jam games in the past 6 months, so we’ll most likely take a break from jams until the next Ludum Dare in August. If you’re interested in our latest entry, it’s called Star Traveller and is available on our games page here. Last Updated April 2017
