Reagan Harper – Site Developer & Biz Dev
Growing up in small town New Zealand, Reagan discovered his passion for gaming later than many. His mid-teens had him stumble across a copy of Final Fantasy VII, after which he made the call that exploring virtual worlds would be a far better use of his time than chasing a hoop with a stick down a dirt road.
Reagan lives with his partner and two cats on the outskirts of Wellington, New Zealand. He loves motorcycles, open worlds, and learning the ins and outs of how not to suck at building digital spaces.

Balthazar Valentine – Video Producer
Balthazar is a self-appointed ‘realist’. Real issues or gaming, he prides himself on being pragmatic and wearing his heart on his sleeve.
Since just last year, Balthazar has pledged allegiance to PC. If he had to pick otherwise, Nintendo would take it.
A jack-of-all-trades and master of ‘nada, Balthazar’s preference is anything he can sink hundreds of hours into and have nothing to show for it at the end.
