My name is Matt. I’m a game designer , author and 2D artist. I started out as an indie developer and am now creating games full time. So far I have written and designed three adventure games: “What Makes You Tick” (2007) (an adventure game short story), followed by the full-length sequel “What Makes You Tick: A Stitch in Time” (2010) and the fairytale journey “The Night of the Rabbit” (2013). Right now I am working on a game adaptation for Ken Follett’s novel “The Pillars of the Earth” (2017). I am leading the project with my co-author and game designer Kevin Mentz at Daedalic Entertainment.
At Daedalic I have also worked on other projects as author and game designer. I worked on a number of game pitches and supported productions as co-producer, voice director and consultant.
