Patrick MoranVice President of GamesKongregate

General Manager at Kongregate Patrick Moran's twenty-one year video game career spans design on games like Mass Effect 2/3, Studio Creative Director at Disney (Avengers Initiative), and building the initial live operations infrastructure on Amazon titles like New World. While at Amazon, he was responsible for the hiring of an indigenous consultant to mitigate colonial elements in the Amazon IP's original vision. He led the implementation of an NFT economy on Kongregate's acquisition surviv.io, and led development of Bit Heroes Arena, a play-to-earn title to launch in 2022. This makes him one of the few experienced NFT executive leaders in play-to-earn gaming with shipped titles as of GDC 2022. Outside of games, his electro dark-pop music project Possible Impossible exceeded over 1M plays and listens in 2021 on social media, and streaming platforms, and was covered by over 100 industry news sites and playlists, such as Roadie Music, who called his release "Unmissable".
