Linden Himawan, writing, and video games

RC Creative Writing alum Lindendeary Himawan (RC 2018) reports that his “programming journey” has led to some early game development projects. “I’ve successfully made some simple games, and I’m learning to make a JRPG in my free time,” he says. Linden finds the coding side of game development to be not as difficult as he once thought, and believes that “it’s more difficult to get a video game’s story right than it is to get its mechanics and code right.” He says that the video games that remain memorable are usually due to their amazing story and characters.

Linden continues to be interested in data science and programming, and is considering graduate school.
