Ilya Zarembsky aka the Wily Codger aka the Deadzone Don aka the Diamond Child is a single and strikingly handsome, adventurous, sensual, and generous game designer living in Brooklyn. He would have loved to make an end-of-year Best list at freeindiegam.es, but will probably have to settle for sweeping the IGF awards in a few years. When he's not crafting innovative action game mechanics or creating affecting and deeply personal abstract procedural narrative vignettes (or doing both at once!), he is usually crying and drinking alone in a bar somewhere. Just kidding! ....Or not?! He also sometimes writes about games, runs the legendary board game play(test)ing party The Jolly Gamer, and helps out with independent, subversive, groundbreaking, and generally badass game events and exhibits -- like Living Games and Different Games -- whenever he gets the chance. He tweets bad puns at @wly_cdgr and makes his internet bed at http://www.thewilycodger.com. Text him at 978-473-3172 to make a drinks date at Happyfun Hideaway.
