About David Wehle
With The First Tree, David Wehle created one of the most emotional adventure titles of the late 2010’s. The game was nominated for Best Game at the Emotional Game Awards, and also received positive reviews from IGN, Kotaku, and PC Gamer. David created the game to deal with the unexpected passing of his father, and with this honest self-reflection came an interwoven story about a fox looking for her missing cubs, and a son reconnecting with his estranged father in Alaska. David also created the first-person narrative game Home is Where One Starts, and he was instrumental in building The VOID, a location-based VR studio which partnered with Lucasfilm, Sony Pictures, and Marvel and helped bring their stories to life.
