ABOUT THE CREATOR
Jordan McLaughlin founded his company, Rookie Mage Games, in 2018 to bring his passion for rambunctious fun to others.
Born and raised in Central Ohio, Jordan was the kid that organized the superhero games at recess and made his cousins perform in plays he wrote (which they loved but refuse to admit it).
Jordan watched his first scary movie, Scream, at a friend’s house when he was 14 (don’t tell his parents). He was instantly hooked and quickly became a fan of slasher flicks from the 80’s, such as Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street.
As an adult, Jordan graduated from the University of Akron before moving to the Columbus, Ohio area to pursue his career. He kept his love for creativity by making fake movie trailers, video games, and escape rooms to torment his family members.
Now, those years of creative experience and affinity for scary movies have culminated into DON’T GET STABBED!. Jordan worked late evenings at the public library to design the mechanics, create the artwork, and plan production.
“There isn’t a single part of this game I didn’t do myself. I’m even writing this press release.” Jordan said.
Jordan currently resides in New Albany, Ohio with his partner Alex, who is really tired of being forced to play test this game all the time.
