Hi! I'm sunandshadow, also known as Mare. I'm a 35 year old woman who has been involved in indie game design for 15 years. I have a B.A. in English, because degree programs for video game design didn't quite exist yet when I went to school; design is my first love, fiction is my second, and art is my third. I've been a gamer since I was a small child and my dad bought our family our first gaming system, an Atari 2600. MMOs are my favorite genre of games, though I play a wide variety. I'm especially fond of turn-based tactical combat games, pet/farming games, adventure games, and RPGs. I am available for freelance consulting on a design or editing/ghostwriting at reasonable rates. I'm also interested in doing design work for indie MMO projects, if they are just getting started.
