Thank you so, so much! 💖💕💖💕💖




Hi, I'm Nicky Case!  I mostly make games & interactives that help folks learn through play.  I also sometimes make comics, videos, and longform essays.  These ✨playful things ✨have been about game theory, mental health, being a queer person of color, epidemiology, complex systems theory, cognitive science, math, voting systems, and one time I made a webcam toy that turned you into anime.

My inability to focus on one thing isn't a bug... it's a feature!



Here's a few of my better-known games & interactives: (click the images! these images don't look like links, but they are, indeed, links)



















And all of my work is open source/public domain, thanks to your support on Patreon! Seriously – without your feedback, kind words, and generous support, I could never have this much creative autonomy.  I'd be... eating cardboard or something. 

Really – thank you.

YOU ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL, MAJESTIC UNICORNS.  This would be a full-time salary for me, so I can quit my day job!  (if I, uh, had a day job)
