Ben Montoya - Game Designer
From childhood onward Ben has had a passion for the video game industry and in some way or another he's striven to be apart of it in any way he could. From the start, working at a mom-n-pop video game store, freelance writing reviews and articles for websites, writing story and designing levels for indie games, to gaining a three year Bachelors of Science in Game Design, and then three more years of professional game designer experience. He has always had a love of the medium and "is really good at writing about himself in the third person."
As a designer I try to think outside the box. This industry is constantly changing and what used to work a year or two ago just doesn't cut it anymore. I love conceptualizing new game mechanics, new game design, new monetization methods, new ways to tell a story. A whole lot of hard work mixed with a little bit of comic relief; that's the way I am!
