Biography

Hello, my name is Oliver Curtis and I’m a very passionate Level Designer and Game Developer!

I’m currently working on Operation: Black Mesa with Tripmine Studios along with other personal projects in my spare time (along with being a father and annoying my partner)

I also publish video tutorials on YouTube, mostly in the Unreal Engine but I do plan to tackle other engine toolkits.

When I create a level, it’s much more then a series of brushes, meshes, sound nodes and scripted events, it’s a virtual world where anyone can jump in and explore.

Oh, and I also listen to chiptune and heavy metal, because I’m that guy.
