Hi, I’m James Muirhead, a game designer from Scotland. I am in my fourth year of studying a BA (Hons) in Games Design and Production at the University of Abertay. During my time at university, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with industry clients including Blazing Griffin and Cloud Imperium.
I have a particular passion for gameplay and system design. My approach to design is both data-driven and user-focused, with an emphasis on usability and fun.
I’m a member of Tartan Paint Games, a collaborative group of fellow students. We’ve made several fun and unique games together.
In my spare time, I run a small YouTube channel where I produce videos about modern history, technology and creative projects I’m working on. I’ve entered some of these videos into international film festivals.
My proudest achievement is completing Factorio in under 15 hours.
