My name is Scott Howard and in short I'm an aspiring game designer, gaming enthusiast, bargain-hunter, and beer lover. I've been gaming for as long as I can remember, but I've also dabbled in video game design over the years, starting with the original Half-Life in modding and also Warcraft/Starcraft custom map making.
I went to school and earned a Bachelor of Science in Digital Entertainment and Game Design at ITT-Technical Institute. I worked a year at Cyan Worlds/Cyan Test as a QA Tester and QA Test Lead, but life has it's odd little twists and turns, so I'm no longer working in the game industry officially.
With a full time job, it can be difficult to find the motivation to design games. Thankfully, I stumbled upon this website and the Construct 2 engine about a week ago, and it reignited the spark to start working again. I dabbled with the free version for a few days and immediately purchased a license. I created a couple 40-hour game projects with GameMaker 8.1 and I'm going to attempt to recreate at least one of them using Construct 2.
There's not much else to say other than I'm pretty much just a dude with a loving wife and dog who is trying to create games on a side, whenever I'm not playing them, of course. I also tend to get long-winded and wordy, so I'll wrap this up now! I look forward to participating in the community in any ways that I can and hopefully I'll get around to sharing some of my games with you all.
