hi. my name is caitlynn belle, but i generally go by my middle name, aura. i make games. i’m a queer nonbinary femme (they/them) living in the southern united states. i have a cool dog named kaiju and two cats named brie and feta.

some of my games are very generous with sex and kink, by the way, so be advised if that’s not your jam!

my resume includes:

  • i’ve done work for alessandro piroddi’s game the name of god, creating two special fetishes called the glitch and the garden.
  • i’ve also created a scenario about a post-apocalyptic death virus called hatch fever for  a grandiose disaster by mike young and ndp design.
  • i worked with josh jordan to create singularity, a transhuman dating show game about surreal humans and their surreal love, which was successfully funded on kickstarter.
  • my game marie mandelhaus loves the snow will be featured in marshall miller and j. walton’s seasonally affected anthology.
  • i was part of a design team working with ben lehman and others to create an upcoming video game about a mongol princess.
  • i’ve contributed garden full of static, a special world to play in, to the second edition kickstarter of robert bohl’s misspent youth.
  • my world of reputation and social media of the past, mirror, will be a setting in the veil: cascade.
  • you can find ice cream fundae, a 90’s improv hip-hop band, in hannah schaffer’s damn the man, save the music.
  • i run a mostly-monthly release schedule of tiny games on patreon.
  • i co-designed the tragedy of gj 237b with ben lehman, designer of polaris, bliss stage, and hot guys making out.
  • i contributed bedroom to the #feminism anthology.
  • my game a real game won the indie groundbreaker award for 2016 for game of the year.
  • singularity, co-written by me, was nominated for the indie groundbreaker award for 2017 for most innovative.
  • i contributed atmo, a special world about hot gay space boys, to the spell kickstarter

basically what i’m saying is i have no free time.

i’m on twitter, where i say garbage words and waste everyone’s time. you can find my professional, not awful twitter account here, which tells you what projects of mine are coming up and where you can find them.
