Galaxian Highlights #12 | The Todd Corps

We’re back with another deep dive on a Web3 professional like no other, working hard to bring the future of entertainment into reality.

Community is more than just a collection of people. When like-minded people congregate, it takes exceptional individuals to start the spark of connections that lead to common goals and real community support. These infectiously energetic few exude pure passion for their craft, and their enthusiasm is felt by all around them–spreading like wildfire.

The Gala Games team is leading the charge into the Web3 world, in no small part due to the unrivaled expertise of the multi-disciplined masters behind unprecedented entertainment experiences. Every once in a while, one of these experts also stands as a pillar of the people, driving both creative direction and community spirit to new heights of greatness.

Today we focus on one of those rare individuals–a man who rarely is too busy to experience the small joys of simple human interaction, yet still finds the time to excel in his field with unparalleled efficiency and skill. You may know him as or 1oddgent in Discord… AKA, Todd.

Today we focus on the renowned designer and notoriously vicious defender of all things pizza — Dan!

What is your role at Gala Games?

Lead UI Designer.

What inspired you to do what you do for a living?

It’s hard for chickens to find work nowadays. I wanted to do my part and help them with Town Star.

Everyone in the Discord community knows Dan’s pfp, but have you ever seen the original, unedited image?

Favorite part of the Gala Games community?

My favorite thing about the Gala Games community is that it feels like a giant family. Every time I hop on the Discord I feel right at home. We laugh, talk, (respectfully) argue… more like most families do, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. The relationships I’ve made on Discord are priceless and as a result motivate me to always do my best here at Gala Games.

When this man says he loves spending time with the community, he’s not lying!

What are your favorite games?

OMG. Guess Who is 🔥!

There are many but I’m going to go with DOOM.

First and foremost, it’s not afraid to be itself. By that I mean a blood ridiculously violent, unapologetically brutal, and metal game where the objective is simple: rip and tear until it is done.

DOOM knows exactly what it wants to be and makes no excuses, hence why it’s a close favorite of mine.

There are just some things that everyone should do regularly for proper self care.

Biggest role models?

That would have to go to my parents, both amazingly loving people who I aspire to be now that I have a family of my own. Growing up they made sure my brothers and I had what we needed and occasionally got what we wanted, never allowing us to forget the difference between the two.

I still go to them for advice, and as I’m continuously learning from them, they remain as dedicated to my brothers and I as today as when we were little kids doing anything but behaving.

Cool hobbies and interests?

I enjoy lifting heavy things up and setting them down for a long period of time.

I mean… I definitely lack the patience to make slider box samurai armor. Sounds like Dan cosplays just fine!

Proudest gaming moment ever?

Gifting my nephew a PS5 last Christmas, worth all the trouble in finding one to see his reaction.

That’s pretty epic for Todd’s nephew, and it didn’t even require a snappening.

Favorite Food?

Oh my… pizza of course!

The real question is what kind of pizza, so here are my top three choices:

  1. Stuffed crust pizza with extra cheese, extra sauce, and your choice of toppings
  2. Deep dish, simply because it can withhold mounds of toppings
  3. Cinnamon dessert pizza, a pure masterpiece!

Least favorite food?

Tacos and Sandwiches, everyone knows they are the inferior enemies to pizza.

Everybody should rush to Discord to thank Todd at once for sparing some of his time to answer our questions. It’s always a pleasure to spotlight a hardworking member of the Gala Games team, and an inside look into the brilliant mind of Dan has been long overdue.

We hope every single member of this great community enjoys these features, because we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. There are more members of the team to showcase, and we can’t wait to be back in two weeks with yet another installment of the Galaxian Highlights for you!
