ABOUT ME



Hello! I'm Ben Savage, a game developer with over 5 years professional experience.


After a lifetime of enjoying video games, it's extremely gratifying to be able to actually create them for a living. Whether I'm working with a large team and hammering out architectural details in design meetings or just experimenting with new technologies in my free time, there's always that irreplaceable thrill for problem-solving that makes it worthwhile.


I've given talks on game development at Microsoft, written tutorials for Intel and was employed as an HTML5 game developer and technical coordinator by Sesame Street. My most recent position was at Mahi Gaming where I worked on a number of innovative casino games.


I currently live in sunny Boca Raton, Florida with my wife Masami.

PERSONAL PROJECTS

My personal games range from simple interactive animations and educational games to puzzle games, platformers and arcade-style shooters.

Below are some screengrabs from some HTML5 games I've made over the past few years.




In addition to games in the strict sense, I've also made a number of interactive applications such as e-books, interactive flash cards, and physics simulations.
