Executive Producer & Announcer
I’m a Game Design graduate who loves big and small creative experiences. I love to dive into the feelings of games as well as artistic elements that tell a compelling story. I don’t really have a favourite genre of game however I don’t really like horror games. Some of my favourite games of all time are: Detroit Become Human, Overwatch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I usually play PC, Nintendo Switch or PS4 and on the off occasion will test out some Android mobile games. You’ll usually find me announcing and producing the live show each week as well as out and about the local Brisbane Game Development scene.
I am an adventure and RPG gaming nerd. I love to play all kinds of games and often find myself drawn to particular games because it boasts a cute art style, good story-line, or amazing soundtrack. I started getting into games on a Nintendo Gameboy and have since played on PlayStation and Xbox. As I grew, so did my “sophistication” and I now mostly get my games fix from my PC or my Switch. I’m always on the hunt for new and fun games. Like the real gamer girl I aspire to be, I love The Sims, Life is Strange, and Pokémon. I have a degree in English and Writing and can sometimes be found streaming on Twitch. Mostly, I’m on the lookout for new games that are going to give me a good adventure, so if you have recommendations send them my way.
I’m a nerd at heart and my favourite game genres are Indie, Open World RPG’s and Walking Simulators, basically anything with a beautiful art style and captivating story-line. I started out on Nintendo 64 (Super Mario represent!) and PS2 and now, I mainly play on PS4 and Nintendo Switch. I’m always on the hunt for hidden Indie gems, and some of my favourite games are indies, particularly Night in the Woods, Oxenfree and Firewatch. Triple A games include Horizon Zero Dawn, The Witcher Series, Dragon Age and pretty much anything Bethesda does. I have dabbled in Twitch streaming, but mostly love to play snuggled up with my cat or a with friends.
Growing up on the mean streets of suburban north west Brisbane, Paul (AKA ‘ Grandfather Time’) gained his street cred at an early age with PC titles such as ‘Space War’, ‘Captain Comic’ and ‘Aldo’ before moving onto the hard stuff, ‘Shark! Shark!’ for the Intellivision. In his formative years he became a great fan of the point and click adventure genre and scavenging local BBSes for shareware. After gaining his credentials in game design Paul was famously quoted as saying “It would seem much easier to simply talk about games than make them” and would later go on to create a Podcast called ‘Eight and a Half Bit’ which still remains not-deleted to this very day. Paul will play almost anything on any platform he can get his hands on with a penchant for the unique and unusual. He does not like Pokemon, MMO’s or rocks in his socks. You can though. It’s fine. Favourite games include: Monkey Island 2, Outer Wilds, Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Little Big Adventure, Magicka, Beat Saber, Dungeon Keeper 2, Castelvania: Dawn of Sorrow, Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan and a thousand others.
I’m a lover of all things games, video, tabletop or roleplaying! I’ve been passionately playing since primary school, but my tastes have shifted a lot since my Runescape days. I don’t have a favourite genre but adore video games that focus on storytelling (especially if they can make me cry). I mostly play on PC but have a collection for my switch too. Some of my all-time favourites are: Don’t Starve, Night in the Woods, Wandersong, and Tales from the Borderlands. I love trying out new tabletop games especially if they have a weird settings or unique mechanics!
