About Me

Ian Percy Headshot

Some of my favorite games are Hollow Knight, Titanfall 2, GRIS, Doom Eternal, Lies of P, Dishonored, and Hi-Fi Rush!

Hi! I'm Ian Percy, a Level Designer from Dallas, Texas. I'm currently attending the University of Texas at Dallas and majoring in Arts, Humanities, and Technology in Games.

I absolutely love to create; more specifically, I love creating experiences that subtly teach the player through gameplay in a way that lets them learn while staying immersed. I'm passionate because I see a game's level as the most fundamental form of communication with the player.

I love crafting spaces for all genres, and I'm especially drawn to those that encourage immersion, exploration, and mastery over challenge.

Feel free to get in contact through the information in my resume! I'm actively searching for job and internship opportunities.
