Hi there! My name's Russ - I'm a 3D modelling enthusiast, a father of two, and the lead creative artist for the Dungeon Defenders community development team.
While Trendy Entertainment gets their ducks in a row with Dungeon Defenders 2, myself and several other community volunteers get to improve the original Dungeon Defenders with new maps, weapons, accessories and quality-of-life fixes. If you haven't launched the game in a while, you'll be surprised at all the new stuff there is to do!
Some things to know about me if you send me a friend request!
• If your Steam level is less than , I will politely decline. Every random add I've received by low-level Steam users have been scammers and/or phishers. If you are a legitimate user and your account level is less than , simply post a message on my profile stating why you're adding me and I'll be happy to oblige. • I do accept random adds; however please keep in mind that I clean out my friends list about once a week. I will keep you on my friends list if you meet at least one of the following: ── You have proven yourself a formidable ally or competitor in-game ── We collaborate on a workshop item ── You frequent the same servers or communities I do ── I personally know you • If you are here because you have a workshop idea you want me to make, please save both of us the hassle and read this guide before sending a friend request. If after reading it you still want to add me, read it again. • If you add me just for the sake of being "friends", you'll be one of the individuals I clean out. Please understand its nothing personal, its simply how I stay organized while still accommodating all friend requests. • I prefer to trade via offers, so please don't add me to trade. Click here to send me a trade offer instead. • You are welcome to re-add me if I errantly remove you! Just note that you are still subject to the above requirements to stay on my friends list.
Why "gigazelle", you ask? It's a long story that goes way back - in short it's a combination of the stupid stuff I did on the trampoline as a teenager, my technical proficiency, and my lanky body. Over the years it has evolved into Gigazelle - the pony is there to simply get a reaction out of people who judge people based solely on an avatar.
