Interactive Indies #21 - Video Games!

Matt Woelk is a game developer, improviser, and musician. To Matt, being is learning, mathematics is exciting, and stories are the lens through which we see the world. His goal is to make a game that you've heard of, while supporting the people around him. Working on #PropagandaLlama, a one-button game about indoctrination, and #FeistyHeist! Runs @GamesExplained and @SpaceWagonGames, loves games, rhymes with elk.

I'm Rebecca, and I've always been an artist. Currently I'm living a dual-life: 3D texture artist for Tangent Animation Studio by day and a Dental Hygienist by night. I have no actual formal training in art of any sort, though I do love sharing my ideas and emotions through artistic mediums, especially video games, and that seems to be enough. :) I love meeting new people and exploring wild places!

Other projects he’s worked on include My Magical Friend, SkyBoats, and If It Ain’t Got.
