© 2016 by Ibrahim Akinde.

Freelance Gameplay Programmer | Combat Designer with 4.5 years of professional experience in Unreal Engine 4.

Design focus includes modularity, elegance, skill depth, narrative tools, decision strategies, artificial intelligence, balancing, multiplayer design, multiplayer strategy interactions, interface design, and target marketing.

My passion for designing engines that generate experiences is strongly motivated by my skill set, and my love for games. From chess to poker, from Doom to Call of Duty, from Super Mario to Pro Evolution Soccer. Great games have an invisible veil between the mechanics and the fiction, and therein lies great game design. And I live for that invisibility.
