BEN MARQUEZ KEENAN

A game developer.

Hello

My name is Ben 👋, I'm a game developer from Dublin, Ireland currently based in Galway after two years living in Lisbon, Portugal. I love programming, game design and, of course, playing awesome games! I worked for nearly ten years as a filmmaker before being lured away by the bright exciting future of interactive art and entertainment. It's a testament to my positive attitude that six years in I'm still super excited 💪!

I worked as a developer on a massive F2P MMORTS mobile game at DIGIT Game Studios called Star Trek Fleet Command.

The first half of 2020 was spent working on the EXTREMELY COOL GAME Empire of Sin at Romero Games.

I'm now delighted to share that I've been getting stuck into helping on Spooky Doorway's awesome Darkside Detective series of adventure games as interim tech lead.
