A Game Designer and hobbyist game developer in the Netherlands.
I'm Tom Hermans, a Dutch hobbyist game developer and Game Design graduate. I've made every type of game, from marker-scribbled mazes and board games, to full-blown digital platformers, puzzle games, as well as more experimental games.Interest and inspiration
I'm a long-time Nintendo fan, and love indie games a lot. I like to design puzzles, user interfaces, and learning about the psychology of play. I love Game Maker Studio, but I also use Unity and HTML5 from time tot time.Mobility
I've launched Mobility as pay-what-you-want and it was very positively received! In the meanwhile I've released some small games and helped on some bigger games, but also started preparing my first commercial game: Fake Illusions.

Awards & Recognition
- "(...) Why are there no games about crafting games? Well, there is now! I like the way this one embeds games inside itself, and contrasts good design and bad design. Also some of the puzzles are genuinely tasty-hard challenges."
- Nicky Case about "How to make a good puzzle", ncase.me
