About Luke

Game Creator & Video Enthusiast

Hello, my name is Luke. I'm a terrible cook and a lousy golfer, but at least I know I'm good at two things: making games and working with cameras. If you don't know me, you may not believe I am good at the things I said I was good at. In that case you can use this website to see the things I've done and then decide for yourself if I am indeed good at what I think I'm good at. Once you have come to your judgemental conclusion you can persuade me to do said good things by getting in touch via luke@locogame.co.uk.
