Hi! I’m Dave (they/them). I’m an American game developer living in Japan. Let me tell you a bit about my work.

I have over 10 years experience working in games and a background in graphic design before that. My skills include:

  • Game development
  • Game design
  • UI/UX design
  • Graphic design
  • Illustration
  • Music composition
  • Web design
  • Video editing

My Games

Titles I’ve shipped as an independent developer include the musical falling-block puzzler Mixolumia, the Playdate Season One game Executive Golf DX, and a number of smaller projects.


Across my career, I’ve worked on teams as a UI/UX designer, artist, and graphic designer. My clients have ranged from indies like Strange Scaffold, mid-size studios like Filament Games, and even the behemoth Riot Games. Over the years, I’ve had the honor of contributing to dozens of titles.

Let’s Work Together

I’m always on the lookout for interesting projects and opportunities. If you’d like to reach out, please send an email to hello@davemakes.com.

Thanks so much!
