Finger guns and puns are his specialties.

Brigham Pratt, Writer/Reviewer
Brigham is pursuing a degree in business finance at SUNY Fredonia and started writing to give himself an outlet to be creative. Indie games have been a major part of his gaming diet for much of his life, with favorites including Spleunky, Risk of Rain, and The Binding of Isaac. Outside of gaming, he enjoys weightlifting, chess, and hiking.
Indie Ranger had its start as a humble free blog called “Start Press Gaming” in January 2017. It was a semester-long project for Travis to get a good grade and further his studies in journalism. Spoiler alert: He got an A.
After the class ended, Travis didn’t want to give up on the blog. He took it from a free domain on WordPress to a hosted blog. The blog itself went through a few name changes, starting with Start Press Gaming, then Bullet Sponged and finally he settled on Indie Ranger. He’s a pretty indecisive guy.
For a majority of the time the blog has existed, Travis ran it as a one-man show. In the fall of 2017, Indie Ranger began to grow with its own staff of sorts.
And the story continues into 2018.
