    Who Created Our Monster Game?

    The creative mind behind the game is Steven Pasterz, a student currently attending The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Steven was responsible for designing, illustrating, coding, and implementing the game, and his goal was to use a relatively simple structure with a built-in random feature that encourages users to play it multiple times. “I like the challenge of combining creative ideas with the technical skills necessary to complete projects like this,” he says. “I try to treat every project as something that can be added to my professional portfolio.” Just another example of an Art Institutes student putting their ideas to work.
