Joseph Sak

Technical Designer and Programmer

I am a game designer and programmer currently studying at Michigan State University.  I've spent my whole life creating custom games by piecing together board games into new combinations.  Risk with Monopoly money combined with a lot of notecards can be a fun experience.  Eventually this found it's way onto my calculator, starting with Tic-Tac-Toe and the Tron light-bike game, but progressing to the point where I programmed a full RPG with levels, enemies, bosses, a working interface, and a store into my TI-84, along with the ability to have 2 save slots.  I got into creating mods for 4X games just over a year ago, and am the creator of the second most popular standalone mod for Endless Legend on Steam.  I'm an official Steam Partner, and have spent the last 3 months working on my own game, The Perfect Run.  I have just released it on itch.io, all of the information is on the Games tab of my website.  With The Perfect Run completed, I have plans and prototypes already in the works for future games. I am excited to start working on my next game, and the game after that, and all the ones thereafter. I have a few of my samples on the games tab if you are interested.  If anything appeals to you, send me an email at sakjose1@msu.edu
