Kyle is the original creator of Planet Defiant. He had the idea to create an original cooperative sci-fi horror board game that focused heavily on the teamwork needed to survive. He wanted to find the perfect balance between the simple board game and the complexity of a tabletop miniature game to create something everyone could enjoy in one sitting. With a deep love for the realm of science fiction, he wanted to create an amazing story to back this idea up and lead into future incarnations.
Kyle is also a big gamer focusing heavily on role-playing and tabletop games with good stories. He is happy to be able to finally express some of his creativeness.
Phillip is a co-creator of Planet Defiant. You could think of him as the Social Media and Community Manager or the voice of the board game. Behind the scenes he is also the guy who fleshes out any lore and story that is given to him. On top of those duties he is also one of the graphic designers for the game doing header images, page layouts, and advertising. He also does some of the art, but mostly he takes existing art assets and makes them into whatever we need at the time.
Phillip is an avid gamer, both tabletop and video games. With a love for movies, comics, TV shows, and books. He is very excited to be doing something he loves. You can talk to and find out more about Phillip here.
Kristina is our lead artist creating a majority of the artwork for the game from the survivors all the way to items. Although still relatively new to digital art she has become increasingly skilled and we were honored to have her on our team. Currently her paintings are mostly related to fantasy and science fiction settings. She also works as a graphic designer working on logos, cover art, and photo manipulations.
Kristina is also a gamer at heart, playing a number of MMOs over the years. You can find out more about her and her art at Deviantart located here.
Oliver is our 3D Modeler for the Survivors. He is a 2D and 3D artist focusing heavily on the area of sculpting (both digital and traditional), modeling, animating, and digital painting. He is very passionate about design especially in ZBrush, 3DS Max, and Photoshop, but also in traditional ways as well. He has recently got into game development with future aspirations to publish his own works.

Dario is our lead creature artist. He was born, raised and is still living in the little town in the north part of Adriatic coast (Croatia, Europe), and in this beautiful part of the world he is going to stay until the end of his studies. Dario has a Bachelor degree in electrical engineering, and currently is a student of second year and looking to acquire master's degree in the same field.
In addition to being a student Dario is a dancer and a teacher of Latin-American dances but most of all he like to call himself an illustrator and a freelance artist. He doesn’t have any formal education in this field of his interests. He is entirely self-taught artist who is completely guided by his talent, his taste for the beautiful and the ugly and, maybe most important, the unrestrained and relentless power of imagination that seems never to be sleeping but continuously plotting how to keep him awake and working to give life to his ideas.
