I am Liz England, a systems designer with almost 15 years of experience in the game industry.

I was previously a Team Lead Game Designer at Ubisoft Toronto, where I shipped Watch Dogs Legion. Some of my prior work includes Scribblenauts and Sunset Overdrive, but you can check my resume for more info.

My main interests are: procedural generation, AI systems, simulations, expressive game systems (which give lots of agency to players and provide unique stories), and the intersection of systems and narrative. I do my best work when I get to take on huge, complex, and highly interconnected systems (at the high level) that involve a great deal of detail oriented work (at the low level).

I am currently between roles, so if you have a project that you think is a good fit by all means feel free to get in contact with me. I am also open to freelance consulting work.

You may know me from The Door Problem.

You may also know me from small dark comedy and/or horror games posted on my itch.io site (such as Everyday Misanthrope and growth), or from my twitterbots (such as @litpatches_text and @vg_erotica). I also regularly experiment with machine learning tools.

I also have reviewed books on game design and related fields, though that project has been on pause for a while now.

Some talks I have given include:
