Hi, I'm John Brieger, a game developer specializing in helping publishers and independent designers turn prototypes into marketable products. My background as a professional design researcher means your games will be rigorously tested with a broad set of players covering your target demographic.
I currently offer the following services:
- Game Development (taking a prototype and refining it for publication)*
- Contract Game Design (taking a concept and designing a game)
- Solo mode & player count expansion development
- Playtesting & playtest program coordination
- Kickstarter and product consulting
- Rulebook usability testing and game learnability consulting
Initial consultation is free! Send me an email at and we'll set up some time to talk.
I work hourly or flat fee on a project by project basis. Quotes upon request.
In addition to client work, I also design my own boardgames. I focus primarily on hobby strategy and family games, filled with interesting decisions and capturing interesting moments. Interested in learning more about my games? Sign up for my email list.
