Zebulon Rogers is a game designer who was raised in Silver Bay, MN, where a rugged land devoid of fun and opportunity forced his imagination to make his own fun.

Having a great passion for storytelling and what makes it work so well, Zebulon enjoys giving special focus to the artistic side of games that draws us emotionally into their world. Although he enjoys all manner of games, his favorites are RPGs (computer and tabletop), Adventure titles, and Turn-based Strategy, not to mention games which attempt a hybrid genre.

Zachary Snader is a not a typical member of the industry. Games have always been a part of his life ever since playing Super Mario Bros. on the SNES, but he never saw them as anything more than a hobby.

Zach dropped everything and began studying game design while also taking part in community outreach through social media outlets and around his new campus, UAT. While writing is but one of his many hobbies, he sees it as a great way to take part in the gaming community. When he is not working, Zach likes to art around, play football, travel, and try pretty much anything else, really. Also, he still likes to play video games.
