Greetings viewer, and welcome to my website!

I am John Alexander Cotto, an aspiring game designer and senior at Champlain College. Some of my passions, aside from game design of course, include creative writing, Dungeons and Dragons, reading, and Taekwondo. I have an extremely eclectic taste in music, ranging from symphonic power metal to biblical German electronica to classical bagpipe melodies and most things in between.

Some of my favorite video games include The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Fallout 3, Dark Souls 2, Warcraft III, Age of Mythology, the Super Smash Bros series, and a slew of miscellaneous local co-op games such as Towerfall: Ascension, Starwhal, and Lethal League.

In game design I specialize in narrative, creating memorable worlds, unique characters, and engaging questlines. I’m also experienced with making rapid paper prototypes to show off a potential game or mechanic, and I’ve designed multiple board games over varying lengths of time. When it comes to developing a game, there’s nothing more satisfying than getting a team to work well together, and seeing everyone get excited when a major part of the project works, or everything just pulls together.
