Jay Friso

Programmer and Game Designer

Hi, my name is Jay Friso, and I am a gamer, game developer, and game enthusiast currently living and working in Vancouver. When making games, I like to focus on creating experiences that revolve around unique mechanics. Such games include Puppet Master, which features a mechanic of swapping between different doll bodies, and DASH, which is a First Person Platformer that revolves entirely around one dashing mechanic. I also contribute to the student game development community in Vancouver, being involved with AGDA, the UBC game development club, as well as BC Game Jam, a year-round student run game jam.

Community Involvement

President of AGDA, UBC’s Game Dev Club

AGDA creates new, engaging games by melding together collective student talents. The club also has ties to Vancouver's gaming industry and brings in speakers from various game studios. You can find more about AGDA at amsgda.com.

Event Organizer for the BC Game Jam

To host the BC Game Jam 2017, the game development clubs from UBC, BCIT, and SFU banded together to form BUS. You can view the photo gallery and games at bcgamejam.com.
