About the designer
John Ruf, NeoModulus Consulting LLC
I have seven plus years of enterprise software and database design and implementation experience. I have built enterprise software in a variety of verticals and have successfully started my own consulting company. Ever since high school I dreamed of making games. It was what first inspired me to start a Graphic Design degree and to later complete a Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering. I am blessed, others might say cursed, with an overwhelming urge to build and create. Pools of Murky Depths is the one game idea that constantly calls for me to create it.
