About Me

My name is Darren Arquette, I’m a student at the University of Teesside studying Computer Games Design.

In north east of England born and raised, on the playstation was where I spent most of my days, chillin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool and all shootin REX outside of the fox arcapelico, when a couple of guys, who were up to no good, started making trouble in the neighborhood, I got in one little fight and Aries died.

When I was growing up I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my life, which path to take so to speak. This was however until I reached the age of twelve and decided what I wanted to be after playing two great games for the Playstation 1, Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy VII.
These two games were like nothing I ever played before which opened my eyes to gaming and lead me to the path a wished to take, I wanted to get into the video game industry.

I enjoy writing: I’ve recently finished writing a Sci-fi/fantasy novel, one of a possible five of them now (three of the main arc and two side stories.)
I hope to start in the industry as a level designer and work my way up to being a Creative Director.
