Tina Niomi Richards (aka MoltenCherry) is a 3rd year PhD candidate in the School of Humanities at Griffith University.
With a first degree in Japanese, and having completed Honours in Game Studies and Cultural Studies, her research interests include video games and Japanese popular culture. She currently teaches contemporary Japanese popular culture focusing on video games and anime.
When she isn’t teaching or completing her PhD requirements, she is working on her first game: Quantum Suicide, a Japanese styled visual novel set for release in 2017. Other game interests include dating simulators, visual novels, point and click adventure games and an unhealthy obsession with DOTA2. Tina’s dream is to walk the fine line between Game Studies academia and professional game development, with hopes to be embraced by both as their favourite hybrid child.
If Tina is not at her desk, she is probably at the Griffith Uni-bar defending her Pokémon gym.
