Ask about my pronouns!
Jay writes from the heart, and with a keen observational eye on the well-being of other's hearts. From the incredibly poignant and highly personal micro-game experiences in Games for Tomorrow to the longer and multiplayer summer-camp horror game Sleepaway, I feel like I'm always being carefully encouraged to face hard things, do important things, have a good time, and scare the crap out of myself. Jay's games give people space in the middle to find out who they are and what truly matters to them.
Meguey Baker, Night Sky Games
Jay Dragon is an upcoming designer whose caring perspective and unique experiences have led them to designing games that are immersive and flavorful, and that take underexplored mechanics and bring them to light alongside new and interesting ways to play. Jay's Sleepaway is a can't-miss-it horror game that will hold your hand through the fear and that is just this brilliant designer getting started.
Brie Beau Sheldon, Thoughty
Jay Dragon writes living lyrical words about living through/within trauma at the intersection where poetry and ludism become impossible to disentangle while simultaneously opening charmed circles for exploring queerness. If every game is an invitation, Jamie requests that you interrogate where you are and how you arrived there and where you are going. Sometimes it is more of a Jean Genet vibe (specifically the Flower Court which is the ruthless queer coded villainy and backstabbing and romance I've needed all my life). Regardless, their work is innovative and free spirited and always a joy to interact with.
