Jonathan Leistiko is the primary creative force behind Invisible City Productions. Invisible City Productions launched in January of 2000 and released one free print-and-play game every month 'till December 2009; a total of 120 free games. Almost all of the free games released by Invisible City Productions were designed by Jonathan and are indexed on BoardGameGeek. Now the Invisible City Productions website acts as a repository of "insider" reports and observations based on his experiences as an employee of Steve Jackson Games (updated periodically). He's also independently publishing Inevitable, a dystopic board game set in a future not much bleaker than our own, along with Jeremy Bushnell.
At the beginning of 2009, Jonathan began to approach publishers with some of his more popular and unreleased designs. Resulting in two commercial releases so far: The Isle of Doctor Necreaux (Nominated for a 2010 Origins award!) and Pressure Matrix.
Jonathan lives in sunny Austin, Texas with his wife. Aside from games and game design, Jonathan also enjoys making neat gadgets with his Arduino, building decorative water fountains, cooking, and rock climbing.
In March of 2010, Jonathan accepted a job at Steve Jackson Games as a Game Developer. He's also the coordinator for Protospiel South.
