This is CJ. Look at him! What a nerd. He studied Computer Science and Game Design at RPI, and worked at 1st Playable Productions on a few games, such as Cooking Mama: Cookstar. Programming and game design are his main deal, but he can do some art, writing, or music in a pinch. He's a video game fanatic who can easily talk way too much about them. He also doesn't like writing things about himself too much. Is this enough text yet?
*TO DO: Create cute intro sentence.* Claire graduated from RPI in 2019 with a dual major in Electronic Arts and Game Development with a concentration in Writing. She does all of the boring business stuff, writes the narratives, and creates 3D artwork. She most recently worked at 1st Playable Productions on games such as Cooking Mama: Cookstar and Disney: Snaps! Claire enjoys reading, drawing, cooking, singing, and speculating about the universe. Oh, and also games.
Woah, a wild Sera appeared! She dual majored in Game Development and Electronic Arts at RPI, and is now doing freelance character art as well as working on cool stuff at Pine Drake! She does concept art, draws 2D assets, and other art things that might need doing. Sera likes video games, DnD, cryptozoology, paleontology, animals, true crime, and probably a lot of other interests that will increase exponentially over time. Don't worry about it.
