Bio

My name is Kirt Goodfellow; a Computer Games Production graduate from the University of Lincoln with a strong educational background. I have always been interested in video games. My passion started at a very young age. Whilst growing up I also developed a talent and interest for art. These two interest combined and lead me to pursue 3D art, specifically for video games.

Dinosaur Run is my first commercial release, having currently spent almost two years on development. It started out as a game for my four year old son, David (three at the time of starting development.)

Dinosaur Run stems from sharing in his imagination and love for inventing scenarios with his toys. As the game grew, so did our bond. He began to give his honest input, suggesting new ideas and thoroughly helping me play-test.

Although not immediately apparent, there are a lot of emotional themes of fatherhood and growing up woven in to the theme of each level and the accompanying music - as this game represents a father and son's journey.
