Hey I'm Jacob!
I'm a game designer from the UK, born in Birmingham, currently living in Cornwall. I design colourful games that focus on good game feel. I strive to create a player experience that is approachable as much as it is fun.
I specialize in system design, I contribute to the documentation and implementation of gameplay systems and mechanics I have designed by myself or collaboratively. I can create prototypes and iterate on them in an agile manner based on player and developer feedback and my own design intuition.
While I specialize in systems design I am also capable of other tasks such as level design, game balancing and pitching. My work leans towards colourful and playful aesthetics, as it's the kind of work I enjoy the most.
I've been passionate about the games industry since holding a GameCube controller at 4 years old. I play all kinds of games for research and fun. I help organize Esports events for the Cornwall FGC. I love to take part in tournaments for Dragon Ball FighterZ and Super Smash Bros. When I'm not playing games, I enjoy playing a variety of racket sports, with tennis being my favourite. I also enjoy getting stuck in with cooking! I make a mean 7up Chicken!
