TESTIMONIALS

Matt is a gifted writer and games designer... When I needed an extra creative mind to help write Vermintide... I knew he would be a safe and creative pair of hands.

Andy Hall Creative Assembly

Matthew helped us with a lot of things when working on Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide... researching different weapons, characters, weapon names and producing many in-game voice lines... Fast worker and great results.

Anders de Geer Game Director, Fatshark AB

Matthew is a terrific writer, turning in high quality, well-polished material to meet the deadline!

Joseph McCullough Project Manager - Osprey Adventures at Osprey Publishing

...delivered a well written story within the timeframe and word limit we provided as his brief, while also absolutely nailing the themes we were after. His work required very little editing, and his turn around on the edits was extremely quick, usually within 24 hours.

The reader response to Matt's story was excellent, receiving positive reviews from both individual readers and online review sites such as Black Gate and Tangent Online.
