Out of Bounds Games is a small game company run by Alexander Birke and based in Bristol, UK. After having worked a couple of years in the games industry I decided the time was right to start my own studio to learn how to run a business and have creative control over the games I make. With Out of Bounds I want to create games with novel mechanics, that has a soul and transports the player into another world when they play them. The game industry is also full of companies with poor working conditions so that’s another thing I want to improve on with my own studio. Death to crunch.
Based at the Bristol Games Hub I am one of the organizers of the Bristol Unity Meetup and active in the local development scene. I often give lectures at events such as Casual Connect and GDC Europe. If you are interested in having me as a speaker you can hit me up on Twitter or email.

Okay I'm slowly getting the hang of writing on the ErgoDox. Hardest thing is the ortholinear layout. Hitting c,v, and b is tricky.
