My name's Matthew Allen and I’m the Community Manager of The Dead Hamster, a community website for Lionhead Studios fans and gamers, including Xbox and PC games like the Fable series, Black & White, and The Movies. I’m fascinated by the power of community in the game industry and how passionate the worldwide community of gamers is. As Community Manager I get to interact with one of the most amazing fanbases in gaming and I get to work with one of the most talented game developers in the trade. Pretty awesome, right?
As it happens, I'm also the Community Relations Manager for 22Cans, the exciting indie startup studio that's working on reinventing the god game genre with their latest title, GODUS.
My skills include community management, web design, media creation, brand development, social media, marketing, and more.
I'm also a gamer, music addict, movie buff, climber of playground equipment, narrator of anecdotes, master of the pottery wheel, expert adventurer, and I can make a mean lasagna.
