Welcome to Ask An Indie where we interview local independent game developers to learn how they make, do and create.

The Indie: Charlie Mackin, Designer/Producer, Vice President of Video Game Development Club (VGDC) – University of Minnesota Twin Cities.

What inspired you to start making games?

My family has always played games, I grew up watching my older brother play before I could hold the controller, and playing PC games like the Nancy Drew detective series. Once I got to college, I joined the Video Game Development Club to compose music for them. After awhile I started getting into the design side of it and have been working on games ever since.

At what age did you create your first game?
