Meet the Team

OMG was formed in 2016 when three of these scamps met in a game design course for their postgraduate degrees at University of Edinburgh. They’ve been working together ever since.

 

Saran Walker

Saran is a writer and designer from Portland, Oregon. She received her B.A. in Creative Writing at Willamette University but has picked up a number of other skills over the years including fine art, 3D modelling, and programming. She is interested in digital media as well as traditional artistic mediums and recently finished her postgraduate degree in Design & Digital Media at University of Edinburgh. When not creating or playing video games, she enjoys sewing clothes, writing poetry, and making terrible puns. See more of her work here: saranwalker.com
