It is I, Muqarib T. Anwar, otherwise known as “craftdiamonds” on the internet. I started as a simple NPC of this game we call life, but now I have picked up the sword and have been thrown out into the world to achieve something big hopefully!

I am currently a 21-year-old student at Universe of Maryland: College Park studying Environmental Science & Technology: Ecological Technology Design (Ecosystem Technology) and taking up Game Development as a solo ambition. My passion lies within game design as I like to create remarkable experiences for players of all kinds to enjoy or admire. I also enjoy other creative mediums such as photography, pixel art, voxel art, and building cool things in Minecraft. Additionally, I also enjoy the topic of sustainability and the environment, especially in techniques that are used to restore or preserve it; hence my choice in Environmental Science & Technology.

Furthermore, I love playing video games, as my favorite pastime is getting lost in them. I mainly stick to single-player games, mostly Nintendo. My top five favorite games of all time are Minecraft, Xenoblade Chronicles, Hollow Knight, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. 

My current goal is to graduate from university with a B.A. in Ecological Technology Design and follow a career in this field; potentially pursuing an M.A. soon after. However, I also plan on becoming a part-time indie game designer/developer; maybe full-time depending on future circumstances. 

I have about 3+ years of general experience in game design, 7+ years working with Minecraft, and 2+ years in the environmental science/tech field. I’ve got strong skills with game design concepts and basic knowledge of script writing languages. I like to learn by messing around with things rather than following tutorials; I typically take the leadership role in projects.
