Michael Squirrel Games formed with the launch of Sojourner on 7/17/17. We are dedicated to creating nostalgic, retro video games in the RPG genre that emphasize modernization, playability, and obviously, fun. We see video games not just as games, but as art, fully capable of presenting complex viewpoints about society and our world. Our games may challenge players’ current personal beliefs and feelings. It is the belief of Michael Squirrel Games that providing fun, thought-provoking games will result in creating a lasting impact on the lives of players, potentially developing in them a greater sense of self and sense of how to make a difference in the world.
Michael Squirrel was born in Maryland in 1992, and today lives in Los Angeles. He works full time in the field of higher education as a college counselor. Previously, he was a journalist. He operates Michael Squirrel Games mostly on his own, but frequently collaborates with artists, composers, and others, to make his games the best they can be.
