Indie Game Developer
My name is Ross Omland, and
I've been an artist / game designer at eV Interactive, a small game company located in the NW suburbs of Chicago, for about 10 years now. The experience I've gained from working with such talented group of individuals forced me to take on many roles I never would have considered otherwise. As a result, I learned a great deal about making games and decided that I wanted to branch out on my own.
Mixing with my own personal interests of martial arts and particularly Ninjutsu,
Ninja Playground was created with a close friend of mine, Isaias Martinez, in order to establish a name for ourselves in the gaming community. Plus, in working at another game company, we needed some separation and identity of our own.
