The modern video game community boasts of a multi-billion dollar industry with several moving parts – high tech equipment and foot soldiers whose talents and skills are brought together to create pieces of entertainment that video game lovers would commit their hard earned money to buy. These foot soldiers are a part of a highly competitive industry, where the absolute best is demanded from all. In order to thrive, one must possess an abundance of skill and talent and that is where Temmie Chang excels.
Who Is Temmie Chang?
She is a graphic artist known for her involvement in the development of Toby Fox‘s role-playing video game – Undertale. As the graphic designer for the characters in the successful video game, one would have imagined that almost everything lovers of the game would want to know about lady Temmie Chang would be readily available. This is not so but while not much public information is available about the artist, we do, however, know that she was born on April 3rd, 1993.
The artist, despite the popularity of her works, especially her work in Undertale, has very limited information about her parents and general childhood in the public domain. She is known to have graduated from the Pratt Institute in New York, a private non-profit higher institution with a degree in 2D animation, suggesting that she might have well-to-do parents. We also do know that she is of Asian ancestry.
Even though it is a common knowledge that Temmie Chang helped in the development of Undertale, working as the major artistic assistant for the video game, it is not her first major work in this capacity. Before Undertale, it is understood that she worked with Studio Yotta where she earned the recognition for her talents. It has been suggested on several quarters that it was at Studio Yotta that Chang nurtured the talent and skills that came to play in her designing of not only the logo of the Undertale game, but also the cutscene, overworld, animations, and tile.
