About/What I believe

Hello! RichMakeGame is my game developing alter-ego, and my real name is Rich Edwards. I’m based in the North East of England, in Newcastle.

I believe in working hard to create the experiences I long to have, and sharing these experiences with others…

As a child I saw Sonic 1 playing on a big row of department store TVs, and at that moment I knew somehow that games would be a big part of my life… I worked and made my way into the industry. After 5 years at a mid-size company I left to pursue the dream- developing games that only I design and make, with full control.

It’s been a long road, and I’m finally at the point where I can actually design experiences and bring them to life. And I sincerely hope that you enjoy these experiences as much as I enjoy making them! I’m just getting warmed up 😀

My first major project is called Pineapple Smash Crew, and it’s a love letter to some older Megadrive/Genesis era games which got me into game design in the first place.. It has gameplay themes and elements reminiscent of some old classics, but also some fresh modern twists to keep it relevant and new-feeling (and big explosions!). It’s a design that’s been long-brewing in my brain over the years, and I hope it clicks with you as it did for me 🙂

Thanks for taking the time to read a little about me. Please feel free to Email any questions! (or shout me on twitter: @RichMakeGame )
