Khalil Abdullah

Khalil Abdullah, BS ‘09
Advisory Board
CEO and Co-Founder, Decoy Games


Gaming since age 4, Khalil has always had a deep interest for playing games. Whether it be from the large collection of sports, party, and JRPGs, he always had a game to keep him busy. Once graduating high school, Khalil knew he wanted to transition into making video games, so he studied computer science for four years before beginning to self-educate on how to make games through YouTube and online tutorials. From there, while working full time at a software solutions company, he and his brother, Ahmed, continued to further develop a school project, Swimsanity!, as the kickoff for Decoy Games.
