Meet the Team
Team Dissonant is a rowdy bunch of cowboys that saddled up in the midst of the pandemic, and have been working remotely to create this game ever since. Made up of largely young, recent graduates from across the UK, they banded together through the Kickstart scheme and began crafting their dream game project - read their story here.
The team’s director, Yoyu, believes strongly in supporting young people to enter the industry. Benefitting from her extensive software development experience, the team have made considerable progress since their formation. As evidence of this growth, we’re extremely proud to announce we were recently accepted by the UK Games Fund and the The London Games Festival Official Selection!
Alexander Lee - Lead Artist
Stefan Lewis - Game Developer
William Noble - Game Developer
William is a developer in the Whispers in the West team, who has implemented the custom dialogue for the game. Finishing with First-class Honours at the Computer Games Programming programme at the University of Derby, William is a veteran in building multiplayer games - He led a team and built a 4-player party game, Spaceman Scramble, using Unreal Engine while in university. But his ambition does not stop at being an excellent developer as he is - inspired by his favourite game designer Naoki Yoshida of Final Fantasy XIV, he wants to design his own action games one day (and he will, we believe). Outside games, he’s also a proficient trumpet player.
Yoyu Li - Producer
Yoyu started her career in games 15 years ago, who has produced several best-selling board games before her transition into the video games industry. In recent years, she has been exclusively working on narrative-driven indie games. She enjoys making games that bring joy to and connect friends together. Her newfound love of murder mystery games and speciality in cloud technology inspired her to make a multiplayer narrative game, which turned out to be Whispers in the West. She is experienced in project management and has led a team of 20 developers in her previous career. She’s also an ambassador for Women Techmakers and Google Developer Experts.
