Founder & Creative Director of Bad Blood Studios
Hayden is the founder and Creative Director of Bad Blood Studios, a small independent game developer based in Edmonton, Alberta. With over 25 years of experience in the industry, Hayden has been part of both large AAA and small indie studios and has created games for PC, mobile and every major console since the original PlayStation. Over the years, Hayden has filled a variety of creative roles from Designer to Art Director and has been fortunate to work across a broad selection of genres including Arcade, Adventure, Strategy, FPS, RPGs and MMOs.
After many years working on high-profile franchises such as Duke Nukem (3D Realms), Dragon Age and Mass Effect (BioWare), Hayden made the decision to leave mainstream development and launch Bad Blood Studios where he developed Old Gods Rising, a first-person Adventure Mystery for the PC.
When he’s not starring at a screen, Hayden enjoys painting, cooking, and eating, although these days, it seems to be mostly eating.
