About Me

Description

My name is Benn Powell, I'm a game developer based in Newport, UK and have been making games since 2008.

I was introduced to the game development scene via game jams (specifically Ludum Dare) and eventually gained a job in the games industry working at Team17 Ltd as a programmer in Wakefield.

I have since left the company to pursue a solo indie career, with my first main project being Operator Overload.

In the Media

I worked on Experiment 12 with 11 other indie developers, that recieved a certain amount of media attention from places such as PC Gamer, indiegames.com and Rock Paper Shotgun.
