Description

E McNeill is a solo indie game designer working out of San Diego.

History

Beginnings

E McNeill began making games in 2004 and never stopped. He graduated from Dartmouth College in 2011 with a custom major in Game Design. Before going indie, he worked as a QA Intern at Bethesda Softworks, a tech design intern at Sony’s Santa Monica Studio, and the Lead Game Designer at MetroStar Systems.

Gone Indie

In college, E released the PC version of Auralux, his first commercial game. A couple years later, when the mobile version found success, it gave him the opportunity to make indie games full-time. Since then, he has worked on a variety of projects, mostly in VR.
