GAMES AND OTHER INFORMATION OF PORTFOLIO:

I've worked with lots of games lately, since 2019! Most of them are school projects but one of our games, Wasting Away, is now published in Steam!

All of my posts are from 2019 to this day. I do have a bit of knowledge using Python, HTML and C#, though I don't work with them that much. Have started working with Blender lately but my main working point is 2D graphics. I don't mind 3D modelling, still have to learn the rigging well.

I also do video edits whenever I have time! And I do livestreams every week on Twitch.
