Meet the team!

Alec McNamara

Alec treats and perceives everything in the world as a game, so it’s probably ironic that he takes himself so seriously… He’s a crossword puzzler, guitar player, film buff, and gamer (duh), but somehow still manages to find time to eat and sleep (sometimes).

Oh, and his favorite Starburst are the yellow ones. I know — what a freak, right?!

Andres Ramirez

Born in Medellin, Colombia, Andres exported himself to the Bay Area where he became a master of social game development at Zynga. Fortunately for HVS, he was re-routed to sunny Los Angeles, where he enjoys RTS’s, snowboarding, and archery (occasionally doing all three at the same time).

Andrew Dos Santos

World traveler. Wood worker. Skilled Astaroth player. Andrew is the most interesting man in the world, or at least aspiring to be.

Charley

Charley Price

Like a beacon of truth boldly piercing through the fog of doubt, Charley often gets carried away and uses more words than necessary to communicate a point.

He is fond of tea, silliness, and wild gesticulation. He likes finding the fun in everyday things.

Clark

Clark Kromenaker

Clark has always had an irresistible urge to put curly braces around everything, so it’s no surprise he gravitated naturally towards programming as his career of choice. Like a robotic man powered by Coca-Cola, Clark can code nonstop, barely needs to sleep, and rusts when left out in the rain.

David

David Marino

Quite good at a lot of things but not outstandingly good at anything, David’s epitaph will probably be “he was clever but not wise”.

His favorite games are ones he can win.

Jesse_Arttoon

Jesse Busch

Arriving at the studio under Cthulian circumstances involving a flying mollusk, Jesse has fought on the distant battlefields of PC, Mac, Vive, Oculus, and Console… all on one trunk, on a single project. What does his arrival herald? It might be awesome. It might be terrifying. It might very well be the end of the world. But whatever it is, he’ll be laughing all the way.

Nick

Nick Ahrens

With a past that includes Art Director, Journalist, Web Producer and Professional Athlete, it’s no wonder Nick’s knowledge of Roman Architecture is known throughout the world (one of these is not true). He has an undying love for games, technology and science fiction and constantly annoys the team with Simpson quotes.

staff_richard

Richard Corbin

International man of mystery, amateur lumberjack, professional regressor. Richard is known for his rugged good looks, witty sense of humor, natural charm, and of course, his humility. When he isn’t saving lives and breaking hearts, he’s probably on a road trip with his dog, or playing Dark Souls. Mostly Dark Souls.

sean_staff

Sean Keeton

Games, comics, cartoons, paintings; if it involves pictures it’s safe to say Sean’s obsessed with it. His primary frustration is that once a night he has to stop looking at these wonderful things and close his eyes.

 

BioPic

Tarik Soliman

Tarik loves games, film, food, and photography. It’s not a surprise that at any given hour he is either consuming or creating one of those things. Usually it’s food. Remarkably, he can still do a handstand in yoga class. He also loves writing about himself in the third person.
