ABOUT US

Hitpoint Games was founded on the 15th of May, 2014 in order for us to release our first title Hashtag Dungeon. Our goals are simple: make interesting games that do things in weird and wonderful ways, do research based around these weird and wonderful games and entertain people in the process!

Sean Oxspring is the managing director of Hitpoint Games and one of the founding members of the company. Aside from doing all the admin and finance stuff that a company needs to survive, he does pixel art, sound design, game design and programming on a variety of our titles.

Kieran Hicks is the creative director of Hitpoint Games and one of the founding members of the company. Kieran is the lead developer for Hashtag Dungeon. He is in charge of server management, back-end coding and games design on our projects.

We work with a great deal of awesome people who are developing games with us. We work closely with third and forth year students at the University Of Lincoln. Everyone we work with bring their own special flair to the company and this makes our games far richer.

Alex Saye is an extraordinarily skilled programmer and the lead designer/programmer on Utopian. He is essentially the super-intelligent 'Spock' of the team.

Amelia George is one of our very talented 2D/3D artists, she is currently working on creating assets for Nectar Collector.

Andrew Deathridge is the hivemind behind Nectar Collector. He is also a big fan of bee-related puns, much to Kieran's annoyance. He is also in charge of keeping contact with our friends at the Bee-Cause charity drive.

Kieran Wagg is a programmer/designer developing the experimental game called The Wiki Islands. His field of expertise is in creating procedurally generated stories using artificial intelligence.

Jordan Bird is creating a game based on procedurally generated birds from trending Twitter data. He is also working on coding our DOOM-Style First Person Shooter that sources all it's data from porn websites.

TK Kirby is developing a multiplayer rock-paper-scissors style game that allows people to challenge their friends anytime, anywhere. We will provide more information about this game in the future!
