video game development

about me:
My name is Kyle Appelgate and I make games. I use Unity3D/C#, Photoshop, Blender, and occasionally GameMaker: Studio.

I graduated in 2013 with a BA in Visual Art from Rutgers University. I took a couple introductory programming courses during my senior year there and fell in love, and I've been obsessively coding for games since.

I work mostly as a programmer + game designer, but I still occasionally make art and music.

I'm currently Teaching Assistant for the Playcrafting NYC 8-Week Unity Course. I'm an active member of the NYC game developer community, and can be spotted around Playcrafting NYC and IGDA NYC events.

Here you can find samples of my work. Most notably, I made Swing Thing, a game for Android and iOS.
