My name is Grant Joyner. My online username is DigiGrant. My WuTang name is Beggar Charitable, and I most certainly ain't nothin to fuck with.
In July 2019, I graduated from DigiPen Institute of Technology with a BA in Game Design. I've worked on dozens of games: card games, board games, party games, tabletop RPGs, 2D platformers, side-scrolling shooters, multiplayer co-op and competitive games, simulator games, first-person shooters, and a mobile game. Did you miss my projects page? Those are some of the best ones I've worked on.
At DigiPen, they (used to) ask designers to take three programming classes to learn basic scripting using ActionScript 3.0 in Flash. That's adorable.
I have 2 years of C++ experience from taking courses outside of my degree program. I've taken courses covering advanced C++ topics, data structures, and algorithm analysis.
The website you're on now is hosted through GitHub Pages and was built with my bare hands, with support from Jekyll. Take a peep for yourself here.
For many years of my early life, I was playing percussion in school bands. I participated in my high school marching band for four years, playing marching snare and marching toms. And somehow, I tricked my high school into awarding me with the John Philip Sousa Band Award, a unique honor which recognizes "outstanding achievement and interest in instrumental music". It's an award that symbolizes some of the most meaningful memories of my teenage years and I cherish it almost as much as my BA in Game Design.
