Hello, my name is Chris Johnson.

I’m a game designer, software engineer and activist from Adelaide, Australia.

I create short, interesting games. I’m known for both Moirai and Expand.

I’m also a climate activist with Extinction Rebellion.


Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you enjoy my work or have any questions. I can be reached via email at chris@cjohnson.id.au.


Youtubers are more than welcome to use video of my games for monetization purposes. No need to seek personal permission.

Community Involvement

I strongly believe in the power of community organising.

I would encourage you to checkout the XRSA social media pages to see some of the amazing work they’ve been doing and that I’ve had the privilege to contribute to.
