Sidan Fan

Game Designer

Maybe I listed too much about game art, but I am a purebred game designer who has been working in the industry for 2 years. Art and code are the ways I try to understand more about games as a whole. I learn things about games as much as I can, including game design, art, code, operating, managing, psychology, prototyping and so on. Even if I cannot say I was born for game design, at least I am preoccupied with it.
