I am

Game Designer | Programmer

Hello! My name is Maxwell Burgess. I'm a Game Developer currently based in the Austin, TX area. Towards the end of 2015, I started working as a Unity Engineer for Owlchemy Labs building Virtual Reality games. While there, I shipped 4 titles over 7 years. In late 2022 I left Owlchemy to pursue personal projects


Before Austin, I was in Vancouver, British Columbia, where I graduated from the Game Design program at the Vancouver Film School. There, my work as designer and programmer earned awards in the Best 2D Game and Best Final Game Categories. 


I attended the University of Tulsa and studied Computer Science. During my time there I worked internships as a software developer, honing my skills as a programmer and a team player. 


While most of my professional experience has been in Virtual Reality, I have a passion for game design and genres of all types, and am always looking for new and unique challenges to tackle.

Thanks for stopping by!
