My name is Vadim Mikhnov. I design interfaces for a living and play a lot of video games. I used to write texts about that for russian sites Look at Me and Kanobu. In 2013 I registered two domain names: sequencebreak.ru and metroidvania.ru with the intention of eventually making a site about metroidvanias (or at least my broad definition of it). I sketched some cover picture and started thinking on layout. A year later I’ve launched this blog with the text about Dark Souls II.
