Hello, I’m Anthony Free - Maker of Music & Magic for Games!
I’m a wearer of many hats and have a passion for making music and games.
During the work day I’m a Product Manager in charge of things and stuff that you probably didn’t come here to read about, so I’m not going to talk about that.
My Musical & Magical History
Ever since I was a kid, I knew I wanted to make experiences for people that evoke the sort of feelings I get when I listen to music and play games.
I started making hobby games with friends in the ’90s; tinkering, at first, primarily in pen-and-paper homebrew settings, then moving onto video games where I contributed as an artist, designer, and project manager for a few small games.
My work as an artist, designer, writer, coordinator, etc. is what I’ve considered the Magical part of my game making journey.
As for the Musical part, if there is one thread that has continued throughout my life it is music. I grew up with John Williams’ soundtracks on repeat and was obsessed with finding remixes and orchestral covers of Nobuo Uematu’s music.
Getting to combine my skills in music, art, design, writing, programming, and project management is what makes creating games so amazing and rewarding.
