Greetings, traveller!

My name is Connor Sherlock and I'm a one man band making explorable videogame worlds. You may have read about my work on RPSPC GamerPolygon, Arcade Review, WaypointKillscreenOffworld, or Buzzfeed. I create expansive first-person exploration games that radically reject gamification in favour of atmosphere and mood.



I'd love nothing more than to commit myself full time to the creation of distant worlds, far out spaces, shimmering voidscapes, and cavernous cities. Every dollar I earn through Patreon goes straight towards building places to escape to and exist within, without the unwanted noise of puzzles to overcome, scores to beat, or soldiers to kill.



Walking around, in the real world instead of a purpose-built simulator.


JOIN THE WALKING SIMULATOR A MONTH CLUB!!

For the price of a sandwich, I will send you a brand new virtual space to explore, every month. Fit for a few minutes of meandering or a few hours of exhaustive hiking and searching, they're sure to cure what ails ya.


WALKING SIMULATOR A MONTH CLUB: SEASON ONE (2015-2017)

• Meditative open-world first-person exploration
• Travel via strange purple pod to new locations monthly
• Lush soundscapes
• No invisible walls
• No extrinsic rewards
• No violence
• Now available on itch.io


WALKING SIMULATOR A MONTH CLUB: SEASON TWO (2018 - 20XX)

• Improving on the foundation laid by two years of experience crafting virtual jaunts
• ????
• Infinite landscapes
• Intimate architectual spaces
• Collaborative works
 Sustainable work-life balance powered by patrons like you :)
