Indie Game Developer

About me

My name is Joonatan Siponen, locating in Finland and I've been creating video games since I was 13. I've been working on most of my games completely solo not including audio and I've learned a lot since. Currently I'm looking to join or form a studio myself because the life of a solo game dev is very exhausting and difficult, though I might make a couple game jam games here and there alone. Do tell me if you're more than curious to join my projects or want to tell me your feedback on them.

I post stuff on my Twitter so check that out if you're interested.
Also I'm doing pixel art work, check it out here for more info.
