History

Dumb and Fat: Origins

Greg gained some notoriety on the Game Maker forums as early as 2008 with his freeware adventure games. Some his earlier games include the 2009 platformer , the 2010 pirate RPG and then the Metroidvania, . He took on the moniker "Dumb and Fat" in reference to a parody video made about him in which he was depicted peddling mediocre indie games while wearing a "dumb and fat" t-shirt.

Bike Trip

From October 2014 to March 2015, Greg lived on his bicycle and went on a 5,000 mile ride across the United States. It was a physical and spiritual challenge, and a great inspiration for his following work, including his current project .
