[ About that One Member ]
I'm Jiheh ("g" + "hey"). Since I was little I have been fascinated by games and their ability to:
(1) immerse players in an unfamiliar world governed by its own set of rules
(2) convince players that it is worth learning these rules by using the elements of fun and challenge
Games are powerful tools, not only for introducing new ideas and perspectives to people, but also for etching these new concepts into their long-term memory, making related topics easier to approach when encountered elsewhere. My career goal is to harness this power of games to help spread knowledge. Another goal I've always wanted to accomplish is to make a game entirely on my own.
In late 2020 I took the jump to work on my own project full-time, and thus, ISLAND_NAME_HERE was born! It aims to be a fun and unique experience that familiarizes players with some of the problems that game developers solve on a daily basis, hopefully inspiring players to dabble in game development themselves afterwards!
[ What is Spicy Rice Cake? ]
Spicy rice cake, or 떡볶이 (tteok bok ki), is a popular street food in South Korea. As the name implies, pieces of rice cake (think gnocchi, but made of rice) are cooked in a spicy but slightly sweet sauce. The result is chewy deliciousness.
[ Is it in the Game or Something? ]
No! But it is one of my favorite dishes! So much so that I woke up craving it several times during my stay at Spelkollektivet, a co-working/co-living space for game developers in southern Sweden. After a while, it became clear to me that I should name the studio after this dish!
