Jason Santa Maria is the creator and designer of CLEVER the card game, and founder of- In8 Games.
Jason’s first public success with a game of his design came about via a contest held by Frito Lay and Microsoft- Unlock Xbox 2. (2010) Out of over 1200 entries, Jason’s game ‘Thrown’ was selected as one of the top 3 and placed on the unlock-xbox website, where the game would go on to receive the most votes for ‘Best Game’ by a ratio of nearly 3 to 1.
Enamored with games from an early age, some of his favorites included- Pac Man, Dragon’s Lair, Dragon Warrior (series), Castlevania (series), Final Fantasy (series), Elder scrolls (series), Gin Rummy, Euchre, Cribbage, Settlers of Catan and countless others.
Though the numerous homemade card and board games sitting in his closet would say otherwise, CLEVER is Jason’s first official designed card game, of which he is publishing under In8 Games in early 2014.
