Hello World!

My name is Brandon W. Hanabarger. I'm an independent game developer from the Midwest, currently situated in Massachusetts. I studied at the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater and obtained a bachelor of arts in 'media arts & game development' before migrating to the east coast with my fiancée. Currently, I operate (mostly) solo under the name "MoonMuse Entertainment Studio", or just "MoonMuse".

It's been my dream and goal to own and operate my own game studio since I was a child. When I wasn't playing video games, I would scribble level designs for those games and imagine all the cool scenarios I would create for my favorite characters. Of course, I soon realized the chances of me working on the next Legend of Zelda or Mario Kart were slim-to-none. That realization fueled a new desire: to create games that could stand toe-to-toe with those giants.

Since then, I've been studying the art of crafting games. I've made board games, card games, text adventures, platformers, racing games, first-person shooters, and dabbled in other sorts of experimental entertainment. This is my passion. This is my calling. MoonMuse Entertainment Studio may not be an 'official' studio yet, but soon it shall. The launch of this website marks one of my first steps into the tumultuous world of independent game development.

I hope you will join me on this journey.

- Brandon W. Hanabarger
