HI, I'M EDEN

@EdenShazar

After graduating with a BSc in Aerospace Engineering from the Technion, Israel, and working in the field for a year, I decided to instead devote my time and abilities to crafting meaningful experiences for actual humans in the form of games. Since then, I've been exploring and independently developing my skills in various fields of game development from scratch — programming, design (game, narrative and world), shading, VFX, tool making, modeling, animation and anything else I found the opportunity to dabble in. In that time I've worked with a small team on Good Boy — a narrative game submitted as their animation thesis project, and on Snocks and Mother — personal projects developed entirely by myself.

Feel free to contact me regarding any collaboration opportunities — I'm always open for suggestions, and would love to explore meaningful worlds with talented teams and individuals.
