You’re adept at bridging game design and gameplay programming. If pressed, you might even admit you’re more designer than coder, but either way, you have significant experience on both sides of the fence, and are a collected, rational Voice of Reason, always willing to talk with anyone, no matter the subject – coding, game design, level design, politics, whatever.
You’re talented and motivated, with tons of initiative. You get things done – you help everyone else get things done, and bring together code and design so they can create something great. Sound interesting? Give us a shout!
