John Billingsley is a game designer based in Los Angeles who is interested in human computer interaction, the surreal, and friendship.

When John isn't in school he is probably bothering either his or his friend's cats, playing video games, or looking at art.

John thinks there is a lot of room to explore in the blend between narrative design and level design and enjoys games where he gets to walk down hallways and be surprised. Especially if someone is talking at him.

John makes games because he likes talking to other people about experiences in games and wants to create interesting, memorable, or at least strange experiences.
