Hi, my name is Marcus Nichols, I make all sorts of digital content for Video Games & Websites. I'm a graduate from the University of Huddersfield where I got a 1st Class Degree in Computer Games Design.
I’ve been fortunate enough to work with a wide range of great people on a variety of projects ranging from websites to video games. Most of the video game projects I’ve worked on have been successful and have gone on to win numerous awards.
The two most successful projects I’ve worked on are Pocket Galaxy and Hyper VR Party Ware, both games won a large number of awards and were built from scratch with teams that I lead. Leading both teams has taught me a lot on how to organise and motivate teams in order to get the best work out of everyone whilst also still being able to hit deadlines.
I also contributed significantly to these projects going above and beyond the role that I was I given. I created Game Design Documents, Designed and Implemented the UI / UX, 3D Models, VFX, Texturing, Marketing, Events Planning and more.
The past few years I’ve been working as an Independent Game Developer and it has really helped me accelerate the development of my skills. I’m able to produce a wide variety of digital content to a high standard whilst also being able to hit deadlines. I’ve also been able to discover gaps in my knowledge and taught myself new skills to allow me to deliver on key milestones.
I also have a bit of an obsession with Snowboarding, I seem to spend most of my free time at Chill Factore. At this point I've just accepted that it can take over part of my life.
