About Me

Firas Assaad (Arabic: فراس أسعد, fɛˈræs əsʕəd) is a sinister, lurking presence in the dark places of the earth. He, well, I, am a Palestinian software developer and independent game designer living in Kuwait.

I have over 4 years of professional experience developing various websites and applications. In my free time I work on Octopus City Blues, a surreal 2D adventure set in a city built on a giant octopus.

  • Bitbucket: Some of my code, including the engine used in Octopus City Blues.
  • LinkedIn: My profile on that professional social thingamajig.
  • StackOverflow: I used to be more active on SO, but it's too overwhelming now.
  • Personal Twitter: Rarely updated and quite boring...
  • Octopus City Twitter: More frequently updated and very corporate!
