Hey! I’m Isaac Overacker. I’m the CTO and co-founder of Arboreal, LLC, a company working to reimagine the way we experience tabletop roleplaying games online through the Alchemy RPG platform.
Previously, I worked at CBT Nuggets leading their mobile dev team to craft innovative and reliable offline-first apps for iOS, tvOS, Android, and Windows. During my 14 years in the industry, I’ve also dabbled in startups, contract work, and enterprise.
I think I’m happiest when I get to build something from nothing and witness firsthand the magic of creation. Programming is magic. 🪄
👨💻 What I’m doing now
- Building Alchemy
- Playing TTRPGs every week on Alchemy
- Playing video games
- Grounded (PC)
- Minecraft and Minecraft Dungeons (PS5) with my kiddo
- World of Warcraft (PC)
- Returned after a 10 year hiatus. Soloed a Night Elf Mage mostly the old way, for nostalgia, from levels 1-36, then timewalked through a bit of Warlords of Draenor until jumping into Shadowlands from level 48 to level 60. Currently enjoying the new Dragonflight expansion.
