My name is Stephen Elder
I am currently working on an RPG demo with the ultimate goal of applying to Kickstarter for funding to complete the project.

The demo's official Facebook page.
Likes and comments very much appreciated.

I am available for commission in drawing sprites, battlers and making tilesets for RPG Maker.

+ Degree in English Literature and Creative Writing
