Sean Oxspring

Creative Technologist

I’m a programmer, games designer, writer and artist. I am the managing director of Hitpoint Games Ltd., a Lincoln based video game development studio. Recently we had our first commercial release with the game Hashtag Dungeon: a dungeon crawler that uses Twitter to procedurally generate its content.

I have been nominated in the past for a BAFTA for my work teaching games design, I teach the Games Computing and Computer Science courses at Lincoln UTC. I also occasionally do guest lectures at the university detailing my experiences within the independent game development industry.

I work alongside my business partner Kieran Hicks, a postgraduate student at the university doing his PhD focusing on player feedback within video games. Our company has produced several public-space games that visualise real-time public data, including one that correctly predicted the outcome of the last General Election.
