AHML Interview With Ill Gotten Games;
Ill Gotten Games: Taking print-and-play to the new dimension. We're making tabletop gaming inclusive, creative, and fun. How? By innovating our own games and incorporating accessible 3D printing technology.
Arian "Dutchmogul" Croft has been an artist, designer, developer, and entrepreneur since childhood. Having cycled through traditional tabletop mini painting, mixed media, junk building, and many other artistic expressions, he discovered 3D design in 2011 and hasn't looked back. By designing his own game pieces, printing them himself on his Replicator 2, and working at a record pace, he's now changing the way 3D printing influences game design internationally.
Jeremy Larsen is a renaissance man, creating art through woodworking, music, bike maintenance, and exceptional parenting. Once Arian awakened the long-dormant gaming beast within Jeremy, he embraced the 3D design, the painting, the 3D printing, and all the game developments in between.
