Who is Cratmang?

I am! My real name is Connor Gilhuly, but apparently that's a rather common name, so I decided to go by Cratmang. I'm a character rigger and narrative designer that's always looking around for ideas and inspiration, and I'm always trying to come up with fun and enjoyable experiences to share with others.

I was born in 1996, and for as long as I can remember, I've always had a passion for games, stories, and fun. I enrolled in Sheridan's Bachelor of Game Design program in 2015, and graduated in 2019. I later decided to study Animation at Conestoga College in 2022, and graduated in 2024.

I have a wide skillset that allows me to slip into multiple roles if necessary, including creative writing, code, 2D artwork (especially pixel art!), and animation.

Q: Where does the name "Cratmang" come from?

A: Cratmang is just my initials (C and G) tacked onto either end of the word "ratman". As for why I picked "ratman," I was born in the year of the rat, and... that's basically it.

Q: So do I call you "Cratmang" or "Connor"?

A: Either one's fine, but "Cratmang" is easier to find on Google.

Q: What sort of games do you play in your free time?

A: I tend to bounce between games every few months or so. I love games with a large, overarching story (like an RPG) and unique gameplay. But because I don't have as much free time as I used to, I found myself gravitating toward simpler games that require much less time commitment, or can be left running in the background (idle or mobile games). I'll also play any game that has a good sense of humor.

Q: That's cool, but I was hoping for some examples.

A: That's technically not a question, but here's a few games that I enjoy, in no particular order:

   - Donkey Kong 64

   - Crypt of the Necrodancer

   - Kingdom of Loathing

   - Deltarune

   - A Hat in Time

   - Diablo II

   - Master of Orion II

   - Deep Rock Galactic

Q: What's your favourite colour?

A: Green. Specifically, #2CD629.

Q: Why green?

A: Because if I said "Blue," I would've been tossed into the Gorge of Eternal Peril.

Actual answer: I find Green to be a very comforting colour. It's commonly associated with nature and life, but depending on context, it can also represent power and mystery, among other things.

Q: What's your favourite number, and why?

A: 6. I don't know why, it just is.

Q: What's your second-favourite number, and why?

A: 64. You can blame both the Nintendo 64 and the Beatles song, "When I'm Sixty-Four".

Q: What's your favourite flavour?

A: Chocolate. Hands down. If you want to become fast friends with me, give me an Aero chocolate bar... except I'm lactose intolerant, so nevermind. :(

Q: What's your least favourite flavour?

A: Mint. I hate mint with a passion. If you want to become fast enemies with me, give me a mint Aero chocolate bar without telling me that it's mint.

That said, I do like the colour mint green.

Q: My question isn't listed here.

A: Again, not a question, but I'm happy to answer any questions you may have to the best of my ability - send them via twitter (@CRatmanG) or via email (
