Matthew Gambrell

Game Design Developer in Atlanta, GA, United States

Member since April 10, 2016
Matthew is kind of an old-fashioned console video game programmer. He's got his own 2D engine running on a bunch of platforms and adopted C# early on for tools. He's looking to put his skills to good use porting stuff around, wrestling with Visual Studio or WinForms, or making parts for a game. He can do stuff besides games, but multimedia-type work is where he really shines. He likes writing lean code that runs at 60fps.
Matthew is now available for hire




Atlanta, GA, United States



Preferred Environment

Visual Studio, C# and C++, WinForms

The most amazing...

...thing I've ever put in a game was the level select for the Nintendo DS Incredible Hulk. Almost more fun than the game itself.
