👋 I’m currently working remotely for Tetrate.io, helping them demystify service mesh through games, animations, visuals, and web interactions.
Chat with me about...
I have been exploring storytelling through different mediums. I have tried CSS animations, vector animations, pixel art animations, and 3D animations in Blender too. My instagram profile holds a summary of all my attempts.
🎮 Godot experiments
The lightweight nature and the simpler mental model for game programming that Godot affords me, makes for a remarkable developer experience for me to develop 2D games. Check out this gamejam entry I made with Godot 3.
🌐 Web interactions
I feel Web is the most accessible format to bring experiences to billions of people. And I keep coming back to this medium to pursue new ways of delivering this experience.
📓 Exploring narratives
After going through a ton of fiction in books, games, movies and series. I felt it was time I contribute back my understanding of the world. I am starting out a LitRPG, combining my love for RPGs and Sci-Fi on Royal Road as a web serialization. Check out my short stories: The Cacti and True Blue on Medium.
🎮 Currently playing
I have been playing Shadows over Loathing
and Prey this month. West of Loathing was an excellent RPG, and I wanted to experience
that again on their new iteration. I find its lo-fi assets combined with
its quirky writing quite ingenious with the RPG system they have for the
game. The way each encounter is designed to be solved through multiple approaches
if the player has invested enough time to research the game world excites
my explorative soul.

📚 Currently reading (fiction and non-fiction)
Going through Games People Play by Eric Berne, where he portrays social interactions as “games”. I am researching it for building a Persona 5 style social mechanics for my LitRPG series.
What have I been upto...
As the creative force in Tetrate, I keep finding myself amazed by Aswin’s constant hunger and energy to create. You're definitely one of the few designers in the world that isn’t afraid to deep dive into code when necessary.
Product Manager, GoPay
Aswin gave himself the title of “Divergent Psyche” and he makes good on it every day, providing fresh and spot-on perspective when you can draw him out, and putting his unique style, humor and abundant creativity into his work.
