This guy…

So Romantic is a one man studio staring Edd Parris as developer, designer and artist. Edd lives in sunny Brighton in the UK and has been making games since 2012. He loves the games scene in Brighton and helps run Brighton Indies a meetup for local game developers, and Games by the Sea a yearly escape from the corporate boredom of the Develop conference.

A nice story…

When he was a kid Edd used to make games in Klik and Play, then Doom and Dark Forces maps, and then Quake maps, then he went to university and got a degree in Music Technology. He then worked at boring marketing agency building websites and things, until this tweet changed his life…

After running an outpost of the “Molyjam”, Edd realised that he should go and get a job in games. So with 10 years of web development under his belt, he did just that!

By day Edd works at a small games studio building server side systems for games that support hundreds of thousands of players. By night (and at weekends) Edd works on his Magnum Opus, Jack Move.
