Indie Games Developer and Gameplay Programmer

Hey! I'm Saul (he/him) an Indie Games Developer and Programmer. I've been in indie game development since 2019 and have released numerous of my own games and have participated in several game jams! 
I released my first app on Google Play when I was 18, and the whole app was made in a week as part of a challenge to push myself!

Currently, in my 2nd year at Nottingham Trent University / Confetti studying Games Production currently on track for a First-degree or higher, I don't just do all of my learning in University however, I am always looking to learn more about games development to ensure I am producing the highest quality games I can, which is why I started my YouTube Channel, as a way to document my journey in the games industry and to see my own personal growth.

With Games I have one key motto whilst making them 'Always learn something new' and that's what I stick to, with every new game project I embark on I will always aim to try something new, whether it be a new art style, a new mechanic or just simply a new genre, there is always something to learn.

I am devoted to furthering my skills in games development by setting myself new challenges and entering game jams, I love working with a team, as I like to be as sociable as possible, and working in a team leads to a great environment where everyone can bounce ideas off of each other and just enjoy seeing the project come to life
