Damian Sommer is an independant game developer born and raised in Toronto, Canada. He works full-time on his own games, and is currently slaving away on his first big solo release, The Clown Who Wanted Everything. Working mostly alone, he has developed a knack for minimalism in both his art and game design. He’s well-known for the surprising speed at which he develops games, such as his 2-day game, A Game About Game Literacy
, which currently has over one million plays. Damian specializes in using familiar tropes and twisting them ever so slightly to surprise and delight his players. Completely self-taught, he is often found encouraging others to make games, trying to convince them that it’s much easier than they’d think. You can find his games at http://damiansgames.com/
