I am a game designer, game researcher and a writer (poet). Buy my latest book The Saree Shop from https://www.speculativebooks.net/shop-1/the-saree-shop-by-shringi-kumari.
Prior to my research work, I have worked as a game developer and designer in the industry from 2006 to 2016. In this period I have worked across big (EA etc.) and small studios (Wooga etc.) on a number of platforms and gaming genres. I started my career in India and since have travelled between India, Scotland, Germany and am currently based in London. I have an expertise in games on the mobile platform including the F2P model. I keep the focus of my work on clean mechanics, intriguing messaging and fair-robust game models. These days I am working on independent games, latest project being RED.
In my research (PhD) I am currently looking at applying stage magic principles to games. I am particularly keen on understanding uncertainty in games and finding ways to elicit that using principles and techniques from other creative fields.
