Hello there and welcome to my new blog! My name is Benedict Ng. I am a gamer and an ‘idea person’. I enjoy thinking up random stuff as much as I enjoy gaming. Then came the day that I had my first crush back in fourth grade.
(Skippable life changing event) (Start)
Being lovestruck for the first time, I asked myself, “OMG! How do I impress her? Maybe I will carry her bag. Or write her a love letter? Or I can get her a stalk of rose? What should I do?” I scratched my head and tried so hard to figure out a way to impress her. Then came a random thought, “Hm.. maybe.. maybe I should make her a game! It is going to be like a RPG game with a love story! Yes, that will surely impress her!” No, I never made that game and ended up writing her a love letter instead.

But that event piqued my interest in making games. That was 16 years ago.
Fast forward to present time, I have been a game designer since 2005 in every project that I have worked on from my time in university and subsequently at MYGO Solutions and Limkokwing Games Studio. Between 2011 and 2012, I was tutoring and lecturing at Limkokwing University.
You can check out my Games page to look at my previous works or just stay awhile and read my many ramblings on life. Cheers.
Note: Do NOT let your kids watch too many romantic/rom-com movies when they are young!
