Laura

Laura (LauraKat) has been a gamer ever since she was a little kid. Now she’s a big kid which is awesome because it means no one stops her from gaming all weekend anymore!

She loves all kinds of games, from FPS’s to old school point and click adventure games. She enjoys making Let’s Play videos for her YouTube channel and she once did a 24 hour live stream marathon of the Gabriel Knight trilogy on Twitch to raise money for charity and for her favourite game developer, Jane Jensen. She steadfastly refuses to read instructions and spends a lot of time being oblivious to various flashing signs on the screen – to the amusement of her viewers.

When she’s not gaming, she works as a software developer and in her spare time she’s working on making her own game about a cat named Cleo. She also enjoys hanging out with her dog and two cats, pretending to be Lara Croft while rock climbing and travelling.
