Smartly Dressed Games
Smartly Dressed Games Ltd. (SDG) is an independent Canadian one-man game studio founded by Nelson Sexton.
Born on July 27, 1997, Nelson Sexton is the founder and sole employee of Smartly Dressed Games. Nelson grew up in Calgary, Alberta, before temporarily moving into an apartment in Toronto, Ontario with his girlfriend and Jasper the cat. He has since moved back to Calgary.
Nelson has used numerous aliases. These include: FriendlyBear, Timberwolf, Builderguy123, DeadzoneZackZak, Greg Stevens, RangerIcicle, and various variations thereof. Most commonly, Nelson represents himself as "SDGNelson".
Nelson can be contacted through his Twitter page, where he semi-frequently tweets about the latest update to Unturned, and occasionally about various things going on in his life. He also has several emails that can be used to reach him for assistance or support, interests in partnering or business, an issue on the forum, or general contact.
Despite Prince Edward Island being prominently featured throughout Unturned's various iterations, Nelson did not actually visit the province until July of 2018. Nelson has a sister.
Unturned was Smartly Dressed Games' previous main project, but is still being developed alongside its sequel Unturned II. It is a zombie survival game, and originally started as a browser game before moving to Steam. Although the game was developed solely by Nelson, the game has featured various community-made content in the form of curated maps, cosmetics, and skins.
The game has gone through three distinct iterations: "antique," "classic," and "version 3." The game is available from its store page, and community features can be easily found through its community hub.
Through a partnership with Tencent Games, a Chinese version of the game is developed by Hong and operated by UU.
Deadzone was created by Nelson Sexton as a game on Roblox in 2012. It is considered the spiritual predecessor of Unturned, and is no longer able to be played.
