About the Developers
Greg Lobanov (@theBanov) Director, designer, programmer, writer: Greg has made a myriad of indie games over the last decade or so, including Wandersong, Coin Crypt, Phantasmaburbia, and many others. He really likes making things that are silly and colorful and story-driven, and one time he rode his bicycle all the way across America.
Lena Raine (@kuraine) Composer: Lena is best known for her award-winning composition in Celeste and Guild Wars 2. She’s also a talented designer in her own right; she self-published the interactive novel ESC, worked as a designer at Ubisoft, and has written several novels. In Picnic, she’d be a red panda named Marzipan with a classic style.
Em Halberstadt (@emaudible) Sound Designer: Em has been the visionary (audionary?) sound designer behind a number of high-profile indie games including Night in the Woods, Wandersong, Untitled Goose Game, Ikenfell, and many more. She brings a totally unique voice, texture and joy to her audio, all of which set her projects apart from the crowd. In her free time she really enjoys camping and nature walks.
Alexis Dean-Jones (@musclewing) Character artist, animator: Chicory is Alexis’ first game project! Previously she’s worked on designs and storyboards at Slap Happy Cartoons in Canada, as well as freelancing for years before that in Australia, where she grew up. Alexis is experienced at animating for short films and deeply loves animals, especially birds.
Madeline Berger (@fungalmatters) Environment artist: Madeline has worked mostly in comics, making a name for themself with their unique wobbly linework and dreamlike writing. They’re a big fan of plants and the natural world.
