Hi! My name is Joseph Olive Wick Perry. I'm mostly going by Olive these days.
I am an independent game developer and neuroscientist.
I use they/them pronouns.
I grew up on a blueberry farm in the Columbia River Gorge, graduated from Reed college with an undergraduate degree in biology (with a thesis on the neuroscience of frog mating calls), and now reside in
Portland, OR Oakland, CA.
Starship Rubicon is my first published game. You shoot things in a spaceship and end up feeling uneasy about shooting things in spaceships.
Crescent Loom is my current big project. It's a marriage of my game dev and neuroscience backgrounds; you weave an underwater creature and bring it to life with neurons.
I made Aesthetic after a whirlwind of a weekend of personal revelations, and got it out just in time for coming out day 2019. I think it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever made.
