The Team

John Sear

I'm John. An ex-games industry programmer. Well ex(traditional) games industry. Indie games are still part of the industry. I'm one of the developers at We Are Colin. I've been programming for almost 28 years which makes me sound very old. So I'm involved in programming / design and pretty much anything else required. I'm really into indie games and I love the fact that the barriers to entry are so low that anyone and everyone can now make games on Microsoft / Sony and Apple platforms.
