How The Expanse turned me into a Game Developer

I started with being a VR designer on The Expanse TV show in 2017 (season 3) onwards to making my own games. For both game development and VR simulations (for TV) I use Unity as the gaming engine.


I've spent 4 years on The Indigo Parallel and I am very passionate about it. While carefully listening to feedback from testers I strive to make the best and most unique game possible. I also want to thank all The Expanse fans who are showing interest in my game.

About This Game

Inspired by the captivating visuals and surreal gameplay of LSD: Dream Emulator and the narrative experimentation of The Stanley Parable, The Indigo Parallel offers a fascinating, immersive experience that is both strange and exhilarating. What truly sets The Indigo Parallel apart is its procedural nature. The game changes dynamically depending on the choices you make, so every playthrough is completely unique.

In addition to its mind-bending visuals and compelling narrative, The Indigo Parallel is also filled with simple but interesting puzzles that challenge your problem-solving skills and strategic thinking. These puzzles are woven seamlessly into the game's narrative, creating a cohesive and immersive experience that keeps you engaged and intrigued throughout your journey.

Each element of this game, from the hieroglyphics to game play, the textures to the models, has been created through years of passion by a solo developer.

Be prepared, this game is weird.

Key features:

  • Non-linear gameplay with branching pathways, filled with hidden features.
  • Levels that are altered by choices made, making each playthrough different.
  • Beautiful and immersive environmental storytelling.
  • Stunning soundtrack featuring music by J Ryan Halpenny and Decima1.
