My name is Shauni, I am a 20 year old female currently studying at university in New Zealand.
I never wanted to become a game dev, it never crossed my mind, and I still don't quite understand why I'm studying Communications majoring in Digital Media, but I am.
I am currently working on my first extra-curricular mod Alyssa's Story for Amnesia.
I have a massive soft spot for horror and survival games and movies, and it all began when I was 14.
I wont go into depth telling you my life story but what I will say is that all it took was one game, one suggestion from a friend (who I was trying to impress basically), and I was hooked. What was the game? World of Warcraft ... Now I can hear most of you closing the browser now simply because of the thought, 14 year old female playing WoW to get guy.. Hmm, well .. I'm now 20 and hooked to games.
I've been working for the same video-rental company for 4 years now. This has helped me extend my knowledge quite drastically, (a nice way of saying, I've played a butt-load of games).
Why Amnesia? .. ppft, I don't know..
I just want to make something that people will appreciate ... I want someone to open a door and say, 'Wow! this room is beautiful', or 'this hallway is scary as shit'. I want to make an impact with my environment/level design. It's basically what I'm about :)
