Hi! My name’s Jem and I’m a game developer from Cape Town, South Africa. What’s it like to make indie games in Cape Town, you ask? Why not come on over and find out?

By day I work as a programmer at RetroEpic, and in my spare time I make all manner of games, experiments, jams and prototypes. I work primarily in Unity and C#, but I’m always interested in trying new languages and tools. I also dabble in the local game dev community Make Games SA, and occasionally help out at the Amber Key Collaboratorium.

If you’d like to get in touch, give me a shout at hello@jemsmith.co.za or @jemmiwinks
