Game Grotto has worked with many talented voice actors, testers, programmers, and artists over its time producing video games. Interns and game development companions come and go, but we value the time we have spent together and appreciate all the work they have done on our indie game titles. Please feel free to watch the credits in our games to see all of the talented individuals that have contributed to Game Grotto's indie game titles.

Donovan Gates

Founder of Game Grotto Softworks, Donovan is the lead programmer and game designer of the indie game development team. He is a graduate in Computer Science and uses experience from his professional programming background to create expertly crafted systems. Donovan strives to create unique games with original concepts, he is a video game collector and historian who loves sharing his passion for video games with others.

Dakota Wombach

Independent 3D artist and JR programmer. Dakota likes long walks in the park, contemplating the clouds and how to get the perfect noise algorithm to make them. A  fellow classmate of Meagan's, Dakota also dropped out because of internship problems and instead he decided to join his fellow artist in game development. Dakota loves all things science fiction, and could talk about spaceships and space for hours.

Meagan Gates

Self-taught 2D and 3D artist and animator. While in college, Meagan was unsuccessful getting the internship required to graduate, so she decided to drop out and start Game Grotto with Donovan. Her goal is to make opportunities in game development for people of all skills levels, providing the opportunity she didn't have. Meagan loves creating beautiful and interesting games, creating individual experiences for those who play her video game titles.

Elizabeth Casey

Artist and graduate in Digital Communication Arts with an additional certification through Full Sail University. Former Starbucks barista, Lizzy dreams of becoming a Disney Imagineer, or something similar. Games with deep stories are her bread and butter! In addition to working with the Game Grotto team, she is also working as an intern for Universal Studios. Elizabeth  strives to create video games that encourage creativity and curiosity, her favorite games being Oxenfree, The Wolf Among Us, and all of the Bioshock games.
