My name is David Kamunyu, a solo, independent video game developer and owner of Broken
Helmet Entertainment, my studio. I have been an indie for 8 years now, having started back in
I graduated as a bachelor of Science in Information Systems and Technology, however, I am a self
taught game developer and designer. Due to the fact that I mostly work alone, I have to wear several hats, including 3D modeller, sound editor, environment artists, story writer to name but A FEW, and of course included among the hats is one for the administrative matters of the business.
Currently, I am working on my third project, an online team based, tank game. It is still in its infancy, having been conceived only a few months ago.
I hope to make games that will take the players on an adventure, giving them a story they can be a part of and enjoy themselves. I also hope that my work will motivate others to make their own games and tell their stories.
