is creating software and systems for telling stories.




per month


I'm Andrew Sempere.

I make software and systems for telling stories.

My latest work is an open-source MU* and game engine you can see at Foxriot!

I’m also working on map-based visualization and authoring tools at The Place Lab.

You might have seen my work in Lausanne at the 10th Anniversary of La ManufactureAmsterdam at the NEW/NOW festival (with Francois Xavier Rouyer) or at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival (with Ian Garret and Toasterlab.)

You might have tried out the Summer of Darkness app I build to celebrate the writing of Frankenstein (with Anindita Basu Sempere).

You may have seen some of the strange and exceptional experimental theatre projects I helped produce (but you probably didn’t ;) )

In addition to building software systems for this kind of work, I also write and teach about using new technology for storytelling and performance.

I have been doing this for a very long time, and I’ve logged thousands of hours (and thousands of dollars) working on these projects. I love this work and I think it’s important, but it’s getting increasingly difficult to keep up the pace on my own.

I would like to share this work with a wider audience by open-sourcing as much of the work I’ve developed as possible - this takes resources and I could use your help!

In exchange I promise periodic behind-the-scenes updates and early access to projects whenever practical. I also need beta testers for projects and I promise I’ll ask you first - and probably put your name in the credits somewhere.

A big part of building the future we want comes from our ability to visualize it, and we need better tools to do this. I work to make the best possible technology tools so that we can stop talking about technology and start talking about what we do with it.
