Nick Yonge


Nick Yonge makes games. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

(It's pronounced "young", by the way.)

He's the founder of Curiobot, an independent gamedev studio founded in December 2010.

(Curiobot was formerly known as krangGAMES)

From 2010 through to 2014, Nick focused on making online games with the Flash platform.
Now, Curiobot focuses on multiplatform development, targeting PC, Mac, mobile/tablet, and consoles.

Nick's games have seen a wide array of critical acclaim and success. His game i saw her across the world
won Best Social/Casual Game in the 2014 Canadian Videogame Awards, among other nominations.
Its predecessor, i saw her standing there, was also a finalist in the CVAs, and has been played online
over seven million times. It's now being remade for PC, Mac and consoles.

Collectively, Nick's games have been downloaded well over thirty million times.

Nick thoroughly enjoys cooking food, craft beer, and warm fireplaces. He thinks space is super neat,
and has a huge crush on Col. Chris Hadfield.
