Keir

Programmer

Keir Miron is a generalist programmer who has been making games full-time for 9 years. Before working on Darkest Dungeon he worked on a variety of games on a variety of platforms most notably “HOARD” (Steam/PS3). He enjoys gameplay programming the most, but jumps in wherever is needed. He also has a podcast where he mostly interviews other game developers called "The Question Bus".

Brooks

Technical Artist, Animation/FX/Tools

Brooks Gordon (@thebrooksgordon) started working in the video game industry 15 years ago as an animator, but his computer science background eventually lured him back into more technical roles as a rigger, a technical artist, and as pipeline/tools programmer.

His credits include numerous NHL and NBA titles, Propaganda Games’ remake of Turok and it’s inauspicious ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ game (where he met Chris). He has also worked on a handful of movies, such as Thor and Transformers 3, after a brief stint in visual effects.

Brooks is a huge fan of pen and paper role-playing games, and if he had to choose a favourite video game, then he would say it was probably Jagged Alliance 2 (which he has fired up at least once a year since 1998).

Pierre

Programmer

Pierre began his career in the games industry 15 years ago working as a one man show on the humble Gameboy Colo(u)r. Since then, he has held various positions including lead, gameplay, rendering and general all around good guy in over 15 shipped titles across countless platforms.

Since picking a favo(u)rite game would certainly cause Pierre to go into an endless loop, it is easier to say that he often reminisces about dark times back in Hyrule, driving off the Rainbow Road, turning anything with Bloodlust into innocent sheep, getting a shotgun blast to the face on Lockout and riding a green dinosaur while wearing a yellow cape.

Stuart

Composer

Stuart Chatwood (@chatwood) composes the music for Darkest Dungeon, and is the team’s only bona fide Rock Star. Stuart is best known as the bass guitar and keyboard player for the multi-platinum Canadian rock band The Tea Party. However, he also has contributed heavily to the videogame scene, having composed music for eight Prince of Persia games beginning with “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.” Stuart’s love of things dark and Gothic as well as his varied use of exotic instruments makes him a perfect fit for the vibe of the game.

Power Up Audio

Jeff’s preferred games are of the JRPG persuasion, citing Final Fantasy IX as his all-time favourite, while Kevin enjoys the masochistic art of speedrunning the most difficult of games, his current game of choice being Spelunky. Both enjoy a hot bowl of ramen after an arduous row in the dungeons.

Sean

Web Designer & Administrator

Sean Green (SneakyPie) has been in the graphic and web design industry for over 5 years and has even won an award or two. Pretty fancy. While his career is in design, his passion is in video games and community building always eager to lend a helping hand.
