Jan Willem Nijman

 

Projects : 10800 Zombies, Coptra

Designer, Artist, Programmer

 

Jan Willem Nijman always wanted to be an inventor. After he found out inventors don't make 200 feet high combat robots in their garage, he instead found himself in a community of people that make games in a few hours. He made hundreds of games, but most of them didn't do justice to their concepts so he started focusing on quality over quantity. To do so, Jan Willem enrolled in a game design school. After finding out most of that didn't do justice to that concept either, he decided to team up with Rami Ismail and start Vlambeer. Within Vlambeer, Jan Willem focuses on game design.

Greg Lobanov

 

Project : Crazy Over Goo

Designer, Artist, Programmer

 

Greg “Banov” Lobanov is a crazy awesome game designer from Philadelphia, Pennsylania.

His games tend to be characterized by simple mechanics and, occasionally, big stories. More recently his work has weaned off its narrative focus and come to rest on more pure game design. Whatever he's doing, he always tries to make it completely different from everything else he's done.
