Feral Sett logo

Feral Vector is run by a collective of people: Feral Sett. We’re a group of games-adjacent people with extensive experience in videogame development, game design, event production, academia, hardware, hackspaces, retail work, industry consultancy, and other jobs we’ve hated. We’ve collectively balled up our disillusionment to kick against while trying to make wonderful things happen.

We have a long track record of events, curation, parties, games, projects and permanent spaces we’re proud of, but those are largely things we’ve done individually. Feral Vector brought us all together between 2015 – 2017, and in those years it became obvious that we were doing it as a team.

A few of us are flippant about our own pronouns below. We won’t be about yours.

In random order, we are:

Amran
