About Adam Klappers
Adam Klappers is a South Australian game designer located in Adelaide.
    Adam has been playing games his whole life, it was only when he was 29 he decided to start creating games.
    He left his day job to pursue a new career in the gaming industry and completed an online Diploma of Digital Media and Interactive Games. Adam decided the online course wasn’t enough and wanted to learn more about game design. He enrolled in the Academy of Interactive Entertainment (AIE), completed his Advanced Diploma of Professional Game Development and never has looked back.
    During 5 years of struggling to balance work and study he has learned and accomplished a lot, not only has he released two commercial games, he now runs his own indie game business. Adam plans to gain further knowledge by completing the Graduate Diploma of Management (Learning) and start running his own small studio or start a career as a Game Designer.
