About Sophie Hiner

Growing up in a house of Nintendo gamers, it was inevitable I'd become attached. I especially enjoy games along the lines of Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley, and I'm oddly entertained by making characters run up stairs. I also love all things cute and cuddly…even more so when I can make those things fight in dungeons.
