William Dube's Blog

 

My name is William Dubé and I am the founder of Thunder Lotus Games. Earlier this year, I quit my job as game designer of free-to-play mobile games to pursue my dream: to make an indie title.

Jotun is live on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/682108903/jotun
