getinthedamnbox: games, sounds, and other work by Matt Surkaaboutprojectshire mecontact

Hey, I’m Matt. I used to have a bunch of text here about who I am, but I think my work is all that matters, and it pretty much speaks for itself.

For professional inquiries, please see the hire me page, which includes a link to my resume.

Everyone else, please enjoy this list of things I like. It’s tacky, but it’s also more honest than anything I’d write in a standard bio. Everything is listed alphabetically; I’m not ranking these. Here we go:
