I make games! Mostly weird ones.

About me

Hello! My name is Sunil Rao. I’m a software developer that likes to make games. I tend to make games that are a bit more serious in nature and that touch on the human psyche. I also tend to make games about pink hippos and wacky aliens. I hope to share any game development insights I obtain as well as any finished/WIP games/builds. I will also probably rant a lot, but I’ll try to limit myself.

If you want to collaborate on a game or talk with me about games/game development, feel free to contact me via e-mail: [email protected]

  1. I wanted to thank you for making the amazing game Inner Vision. It’s an amazing experience and I was flabbergasted by how much more I enjoyed that in comparison to most other games I’ve played. I wish you a very successful career and hope you keep making games like that.

      Thank you so much! I look forward to showing you my future games.

    • How valuable each day of life is no maettr how few of them there are. How to be compassionate to others. To be less judgmental, realizing everyone grieves in a different way and at a different pace.

  2. This is a neat smuamry. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Just played Inner Vision. Really cool.

  4. I found and played Inner Vision in the midst of desperately searching for things to distract me from wanting to kill myself, and it really, really helped. Even though the concept was fairly simple, it meant the absolute world to me. I could go on for hours about the things I loved about Inner Vision, but I’ll hold myself back, haha.
    After finishing the game, I looked through your other works and WIPs and I can now say I’m a huge fan! I love your style and concepts and how they can swing from different genres all while being simple but somehow complex.
    I’m looking forward to your future works, thank you for creating these games!

      Hey, this means a lot to me. I’m so grateful that you were able to get something meaningful out of Inner Vision, and thank you so much for checking out my games!

    You seemed so prolifically good at making Inner Vision, I thought that you were also the person that made Undertale! I haven’t played that game, but the two games have somewhat similar tones and art styles. Thank you for making Inner Vision. It’s very cathartic.
    Try finding people that worked on Undertale, you might find an interesting conversation!

      I’m a huge fan of Undertale! Toby Fox and the others who helped make that game are very good at what they do… Honored just to be compared to Undertale. Thanks for playing.

  6. Hi Sunil. I found a link to Inner Vision from Cathy Moore, who writes about using scenarios like this for training. Too often companies throw money at expensive graphics and videos, and ignore basic storytelling and drama. The result is boring material. Inner Vision has simple graphics and top-class dramatic storytelling. I wouldn’t call it training – I don’t think it’s supposed to be. If you took the principles of what kind of questions to ask to engage someone contemplating suicide and explained them in some kind of recap after the drama, then it would be great training for beginning counsellors. That’s if you WANTED to use it for training. But just as it is it’s one of the most compelling uses of interactivity I’ve seen, way better than so many expensive corporate efforts. I’ll be using it as a great example whenever I talk about learning scenarios.
