Wero is an indie game designer / developer based in Toronto. It has grown organically over ten years as its founders have explored paths in media and education. It began developing collaborative learning games based on kids television shows for producers. It now focuses on games for PC and Console. We’re founders are Adam Clare and Denis Coyne, but Wero also in spirit includes many talented and creative people whose skills are drawn on when needed.
Denis is a producer of television, film, games, and emerging media. He has guided creative development for partners around the world, recently developing television series in an overall deal with NBC Universal, including a drama series for CBC, and has physically produced projects from short film, theatre, audio, and, of course, games.
He is faculty at George Brown College’s Diploma in Screenwriting & Narrative Design, and previously Ryerson University. Denis also represents a select group of entertainment clients as an agent.
Adam is a professional game designer, an educator, co-founder of Board Game Jam (a 48-hour board game making event), and author of ‘Escape The Game’ (the first published guide to escape game design).
He has taught game design at OCADU, Ryerson University, George Brown College School of Design, and is now faculty at Sheridan College. He holds a Masters in the Philosophy of Education from OISE at UofT.
His work on games and education has been presented at conferences around the world.
