Chard

"My name is Richard Thomas, I'm a programmer from Cambridge, England. You'll find me on #pyweek as Membury. I started PyWeek in September 2007 in a team with some friends of mine and I really enjoyed it. I like all sorts of games, not just computer games, and I especially enjoy developing simple game concepts, whether or not they end up as a full blown game.

"I tend to favor games with a simple concept, a whimsical theme and usually a loose (if not non-existant) connection to the real world. Basically I don't like a game that I can take seriously.

"Besides games and programming I also enjoy: film/television, cookery, maths (sometimes) and diving (not enough).

"Oh, that's me on the left by the way, looking very philosophical...
