Games are the perfect way to tell a story.


Games naturally create spaces for human connection and easily engage players in the most complex narratives. They can be challenging, poignant, meaningful, fun and exhilarating all at once.


My work is driven by story and people. I believe games are the best way to tell stories and can very quickly engage players in intellectually and emotionally challenging narratives. Recent projects have enabled me to work closely with Scientists and Researchers to help turn the story within their science into games playable by different audiences.

Hello, I'm Jake and I'm a game designer and researcher. With a Masters degree in Game Art and Design and half a decade worth of experience researching and developing games, I have been successfully exploring the benefits of game design for means of communication.


Through delivering workshops and on-to-one consultation, I have been using game design to help connect clients to their audiences. Recent projects include working closely with a private architecture firm and with members of the science community at the University of East Anglia, assisting in outputing the research of students into analogue games. 


My position as a Lecturer in game design at Norwich University of the Arts, has enabled me to refine project management, production, and communication skills alongside leadership and team management skills in assisting many students simultaneously develop and deliver projects for their degree. Working at a university also enables me to keep my knowledge on contemporary theoretical and practical trends in the industry topped up and relevant!
