Meet Rongsen Jamir, a game designer working in Zynga – a game designing company that has produced some of the most popular games like Farmville, Zynga Poker, Mafia Wars amongst others.

“I got introduced to video games pretty early when the whole idea was still relatively new – back home in Nagaland. Games used to intrigue me so much that I would start thinking about playing my own creations. I feel lucky to have had this opportunity (creating games at Zynga).I take inspiration from genius game designers like Will Wright, Todd Howard and Hideo Kojima”
