Learn about me, Michael Biggers! I'm an independent game designer and programmer living in the Twin Cities.
I make games to make people happy
Hi, I'm Michael! I'm a game designer and programmer living in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I’m a Computer Science student at the University of Minnesota (Class of 2020), and when I'm not studying code, I'm making it into something fun and interesting through games.
I've always been passionate about video games, and to me, making them is an exercise in bringing others joy and sharing my own thoughts on life, possibilities, and relationships with others. Sounds pretty cool, huh?
Aside from games, I'm a teaching assistant for introductory Computer Science courses, and I’ve held multiple internships as a software engineer. If you're interested in my work experience, please check out my LinkedIn profile!
When I'm not working, I like to hike, go to concerts, and take camping trips. I'm a really big fan of the outdoors, and I especially love using my experiences in nature to influence the games I make.
