I’ve been developing independent games for 16 years, and designing fonts for 14. I now do these at Chequered Ink Ltd, a joint venture between me and Dan Johnston. Previously programmed games professionally with YoYo Games for over five, from July 2010 to August 2015, including my own Maddening Overload on PS4. I’ve also dabbled in the creation of magazines and music, as well as writing short stories and doing Let’s Plays of games on YouTube. I’m Allison James, 27, female, half Scottish and half English and currently living in Newport, Wales.
