Hello everyone, I’m Adam Waters and I am a life long programmer and new born game designer. I started programming professionally in the business world and have been creating some of the worlds most boring applications for nearly a decade. Only a few years ago I found myself as a volunteer designer on the table top miniature game Warlord and it’s expansion the Savage North. After over three years of balancing spells and special attacks, manipulating unit costs, writing fictional biographies, and helping to create an incredible game overall, I decided to combine my skills. So indie game development here I am.
The fun part of my job as a member of Embalmit comes from creating the lore in our games. All of us have a part in shaping a games direction, but I’m usually the one who fills up pages to describe some half broken world or writes out an emperor’s speech.
The addicting, infuriating and most rewarding part of my job is the programming. I’ve been programming at the whim of corporations large and small for years, but now I can use all that experience to create something from the heart. We get to create experiences not just programs, and that is incredibly rewarding.
Since the creation of Embalmit, I have been gathering our small team of heroes for something great. Most of them have already announced themselves, but more are sure to come in the near future. So sit tight, buckle up, and enjoy the ride. Embalmit is just getting started.
