I'm Arden Ripley! I'm a writer and narrative designer. I make interactive fiction, and I love both playing and creating dating sims and visual novels. Storytelling and romance are my passions!

I do my best to create believable, endearing characters from all different walks of life, and to tell stories that care about empathy. I'm currently working on my first commercial release, a visual novel called Date or Die.

I will write nice words for you in exchange for money! My rates are flexible, especially for other indie developers - please feel free to reach out, because I'd love to hear from you!
