Hi there! I'm Noah Kastin (aka Wikikinetic), a game designer, synth jazz musician, and writer. You can find a business-oriented summary of all this on my resume or on Linkedin, but from a more personal angle, the sections below will give details on my activity across the sites I call home.
I create music on YouTube via CDBaby, on my personal channel (where I also have some fun video game commentary), via Landr (as Audio Kinetic, not to be confused with the audio production company Audiokinetic Inc.), and on DriveThruRPG. If you want to keep up with my new releases, you can join my music Discord server.
I used to regularly produce game supplements for the Hero System, a popular tabletop roleplaying game series. My biggest releases are the military sci-fi action game Bend (which is my most frequently updated release) and the self-explanatory Environmental Objects, but I've also created the original fantasy setting Tenfold and a number of other game supplements. Another project of mine is the sprawling multiple-ending story Westfall, a fan game based on the popular role-playing game World of Warcraft. Lastly, I created the popular Wonderbox adventure The Last City. To suggest new content or contact me about my game design work, you can join my game design Discord server.
I published a YA urban fantasy anthology! I've also created a lot of fan content, which you can find for free on Fandom. Additionally, I draw and write a slice-of-life comic called Sharing Walls, which is a parody of the aforementioned World of Warcraft.
I was a Wiki Manager at Fandom between August and October 2019, during which time I created and/or managed twenty wikis. I've also done a large volume of edits at Wikipedia, including maintaining an article page on a well-known TV series for a year and helping orchestrate the creation of systems for recognizing the good work of others. Here's a list of some of my best work on the site.
