I love making games!!!

Hi there! My name is Aimee Zhang. I'm a game designer and developer with a passion for creating memorable and touching immersive experiences that make the world a better, more compassionate place.

I very recently graduated with a BA in Interactive Media and Game Design from the University of Southern California. I currently work as a game designer and junior art director at Tender Claws, and as a level designer for an unannounced 3D game with the creator of Donut County.

 

I am determined to have a blast making games for a lifetime! ☺
