Cory Seeger (FranklinCosgrove) + Matthew Conway (archgame) are architecture students by day and video game designers by night. The city in our game has been building in our minds since we were children in the Midwest, where vast urban fields are still fantasy. As architecture students, our two man team has extensive experience designing environments and 3D modeling. Our architecture has always been influenced by our experience in the digital environments of video games, now we’d like to reverse this and create a video game that draws on our experience as architects.
Thoughts? Inquiries? We'd love to hear from you. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
