Biography: This is really an autobiography since I'm not famous or rich enough to find someone to write it for me. Besides, I already have a biography that magazines and such use when they print my work. It says: "Unityflow is a former games designer and scientist who lost faith in video games, stopped playing with science and started to create odd pictures to fill the void left behind." It's pretty much all true. I did train to be a scientist, a biochemist as it happens, specialising in the obscure neurotransmitters of an obscure mollusk. In the wild the mollusk, a sea-snail larger than your fist, has a habit of attaching itself to passing lobsters before drilling their brains out with specially adapted mouth parts. After many sleepless nights worrying about an obscure mollusk mistaking me for a passing lobster in the lab it was time to move on. In many ways, designing video games was a lot like being a scientist long hours working in a tiny room without direct access to sunlight. The abscence of carnivorous sea-snails was a bonus. When the company I was working for went belly-up I was left with some time on my hands so I started writing. I quickly found that good writing requires a lot of discipline and sustained effort, and that I prefer to watch television. It was only when I started work again that I discovered working for yourself is always preferable to working for some other idiot. I needed to find something I could finish. So, armed with a pen, some paper, a restless imagination and as few words as possible I started creating the Flowfield Unity; a collection of illustrated, one-page mini-epics. So why the pseudonym? Well, that comes from a fine piece of advice that my Dad once gave me: "Son, if I can give you one piece of advice it is to have more names than Satan, that way, when they come knocking for you, you can say you're someone else." It's also why my little sister's middle name is Beezlebub. I suppose that rounds thing off and I have to go anyway. The Simpsons has just started and it's a Halloween special I've only seen a hundred or so times... and you can always e-mail me if you want to know more. Until next time then, Unityflow
