About Matthew Bofenkamp

Hi everyone! My name is Matthew Bofenkamp. I am a game developer and youtube personality originally from the Seattle area, now living in Los Angeles, CA. I work as the Lead Developer, Executive Producer, Designer, and Lead Writer at Lunarwood Studios, a small indie studio I co-founded in 2019. I have also previously worked as a gameplay engineer at Jadu, and as a software engineer at DAS Labs, Trigger Global XR, Gravity Jack, Inc., and Alchemie Solutions. On Youtube, I am most known for my many appearances on Cut and Jubilee, particularly for my great ability to identify a very wide variety of foreign languages when I hear them being spoken.

Press Highlights:

 - Gamasutra interview

 - VoyageLA feature

Honors and Awards:

 - IGF Shortlist for Best Alt Control Game 2020 (The Unfathomed Voyager, no official nominees or winner due to the pandemic)

 - Selected for Alt.Ctrl.GDC 2020 (The Unfathomed Voyager)

 - Two Shorty Award nominations for Best in Augmented Reality and Best in Sport (Verizon AR Pro Interactive)

 - Streamy Award Nomination for Best Sponsored Video (100 People Call Someone To Say "I Love You," by Cut)

 - Bronze Award for Best Student Game at Serious Play 2019 (BROKE: The Game)

 - Selected for CHI PLAY 2019 (BROKE: The Game)

 - Selected for HCI International 2019 (The Unfathomed Voyager)

 - Selected for Carnegie Mellon University Entertainment Technology Center Festival 2018 (The Unfathomed Voyager)

 - Five various game jam awards

I strive to create content that brings joy, catharsis, and a feeling of being seen to those who experience it.

Outside my life as a software engineer, I have been seen by millions as a regular guest on the YouTube channel Cut, have a virus named after me because I discovered it, study, share, and accumulate music from hundreds of countries and languages, and wrote a short comedy play about tech companies, impostor syndrome, and Jesus that was a local hit in Pittsburgh for a while in 2018.
