I’m Gareth Damian Martin (they/them), a game developer, writer and artist, making games under the studio name Jump Over the Age.

My first game, In Other Waters won the Jury Prix at IndieCade Europe, and was widely praised by critics for its “hypnotic art, otherworldly audio and captivating writing” (Eurogamer). My second, Citizen Sleeper was equally critically acclaimed, and its prose was named "some of the best in all of video games" (Vice).
