Having just moved back to the Midwest from a decade in NYC, he has devoted all of his time and effort toward creating and designing games. Whether he is organizing a monthly board game meet up here in Indy, or playing games at his favorite haunts, his insight and passion for this hobby is beyond the pale. Heroes Wanted is his second board game – Infamy was his first.
Nick Little is a data analyst and game designer from Indianapolis with a degree in economics. He enjoys playing all kinds of strategic and tactical board games. Nick has played in five Magic: the Gathering Pro Tours. He made over $50,000 playing UDE’s Vs. System CCG.

He also teaches part-time at the Art Institute of Indianapolis, primarily as a Digital Imaging and Print Production instructor. He has been a graphic designer for nearly 20 years and possesses a wide array of design skills and knowledge. From a very young age, Brian began to develop his interest in game design and now has two successful Kickstarter projects under Warpunk Games.
Ryan Howe has been scribbling along for as long as he can remember. While ‘Heroes Wanted’ is his first major foray into gaming art, he’s worked on multiple comic book projects including ‘Gun Street Girl’, ‘Zombie Plague’, ‘Yva Starling: Troubleshooter’, and the recently released ‘Henchmen’ for Robot Paper.
Kira Anne Peavley has a background in large-scale media project management working with some of the largest brands in the country. Kira supports our marketing efforts, and you can expect to see her at our booth at conventions, as well as online managing our social media efforts. Originally from California, she has lived in many places across the country and has spent most of her life in Indiana. She loves sci-fi and video games, and now board games, too. She also enjoys spending time with her family and has recently become a crazy cat lady.
Brian Wyrick, for some reason always referred to as just "Wyrick," is a master of the shadows, always helping make sure things are working at APG and living just off camera in the shadows of technology. He is also a co-creator of the comic book Henchmen, and can be found at comic shows showcasing that book and others at his Robot Paper table.
Jessica McPherson was lucky enough to have met the APG team through her boyfriend, Chris Byer. She has a degree in Multimedia, and helps design the APG website. She is also the resident "booth babe" at the conventions. So if you bought your copy of the game from a busty butterfly, you're welcome.
