100 Stones Interactive
Ben is the Director and Lead Developer at 100 Stones Interactive, his one-man indie studio based in Brisbane.
In July this year Ben launched his studio’s first title, The Eyes of Ara, an Adventure-Puzzle game for PC and Mac. As a one-man studio, Ben was responsible for the majority of the project including art, design, code, QA, PR, and almost everything else. Only the sound and music was outsourced to other artists. As a result Ben is increasingly unsure of his own job description.
Prior to this Ben worked as a Senior Environment Artist and Level Designer at various Brisbane based studios over the past twelve years, including Krome Studios, KMM Games, SEGA Studios Australia, and 5 Lives Studios. He has worked on games in a wide variety of genres across console, PC, and mobile. As such, Ben’s work on the Eyes of Ara was heavily influenced by his experience in environmental art and design, and his skills from working with a range of different platforms and toolsets over the years.
