My name is DJ and I make the game. You can see the other stuff I get up to on djangodurango.com.
I’m pretty fuckin’ talented, no lie. I’m a one-woman dev team, doing ALMOST ALL THE THINGS. Programming the game, writing the story, building and maintaining the online features, all that shit.
A lot of people were into my clowntown fanfic before I stopped writing them out of disgust with Overkill so those who recognize me from that trust me to write a game with a cohesive plot. I’d also been
bitching about criticizing every other thing Overkill did since adding John Wick to the game, so I already had a documented laundry list of things I knew an ideal and more elegant version of PAYDAY would include.
The best thing I got going for me, though, is that I have no publisher, no shareholders, no investors. No one to impose or even request the kind of shitty ideas that make PAYDAY 2 such a mess.
I have good taste and can do whatever the hell I want.
