Hi, I'm Ben Throop


This is my personal site about game development and emergent behavior. You can learn more about me here.

About

My last name is pronounced TROOP. The "Th" is like in "Thomas" or "Thames". I grew up in Rochester, NY.

I make video games and have been in the industry for over 20 years now. I run Frame Interactive in Burlington, VT, USA. I used to be a Game Director at Vicarious Visions/Activision and before that was at Sony Bend Studio in Oregon.

I have been building games with Unity for over 10 years. I had a similar affair with 3DSMax which started in 1996 and ended with the release of Blender 2.8

I look at game making as a inherently multi-disciplinary act, to the extent that it is an art form itself. So while I write code, model, animate, and texture in 3d, do graphic design, do audio, and last but not least design gameplay, I consider it all an integrative pursuit.

So really, I'm just a gamemaker.

You can find me on Twitter and Discord if you want to talk back. I have a LinkedIn profile
