My name is Peter Malamud Smith; Moon Kid is a name that looks cool on a splash screen. Whoever I actually am, I design video games from the safety of a small cube in Brooklyn.
You may have played the hit NES adaptation of The Great Gatsby; the cult "puzzle in motion" Satellina; or my revisionist platformer, Witcheye. You can read more about these games on the Projects page.
I like games where things pop, fizzle, and blurt. Story is welcome, but kinetics are a must.
For more expansive thoughts on game design, you can check out some of my writing:
