Jamie Mercer

Jamie was first introduced to games through his grandfather’s love of point-and-click adventure games, and grew up playing the likes of Kyrandia, Flight of the Amazon Queen, Day of the Tentacle, and Monkey Island. A Sega Mega Drive soon followed, and a PlayStation after that. A love of JRPGs developed after first playing Final Fantasy VII. Now he mostly plays indie games on his PC, when time allows.

A qualified broadcast journalist, documentary filmmaker, and voice actor, Jamie tends to not have too much free time these days. When he does, he likes reading, writing, playing pool and snooker, watching documentaries, quiz shows, and awfully made films with sharks in them. He has been told he has the worst taste in music, and is cursed with supporting Newcastle United.
