Aurora Game Studios
Hi, my name is Aiden Sealey (he/him) and I am a UI Artist.
I am the Art Director and Co-Founder of start-up indie game developer, Aurora Game Studios. I am solely responsible for the user interface of our newest game, Skye. In addition to this, I created our logos, branding and website, which I regularly update and improve. I am also working freelance as a UI Designer and Consultant to Stardock Games. I am responsible for creating user interface concepts for the Stardock team to expand on and implement into their games.
I studied game design at the University of Central Lancashire, graduating in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts degree and again in 2021 with a Master of Arts degree.
I always found it difficult to plan my future. So at university when my passion for games met my eye for design, I fell into my career naturally. My passion comes from a life-long love of playing games. From a young age I have always found myself lost in fantasy worlds, whether due to ADHD hyper-fixations or escapism as a young transgender man. I find, as a lot of others do, that gaming always took me away from difficult realities and allowed me to explore vast worlds in a new persona. I now take pride in my ability to bridge the connection between player and game using interfaces that allow others that same exciting escape from reality.
