Nelson grew up in Calgary, Alberta, before temporarily moving into an apartment in Toronto, Ontario with his girlfriend and Jasper the cat. He has since moved back to Calgary. Despite Prince Edward Island being prominently featured throughout Unturned's various iterations, Nelson did not actually visit the province until July of 2018.

Nelson has used numerous aliases. These include: FriendlyBear, Timberwolf, Builderguy123, DeadzoneZackZak, Greg Stevens, RangerIcicle, and various variations thereof. Most commonly, Nelson represents himself as "SDGNelson".

He also has several emails that can be used to reach him for assistance or support, interests in partnering or business, an issue on the forum, or general contact.

Tyler "MoltonMontro"

Tyler (also known as "MoltonMontro") is the community manager, and was born on February 8, 2001. It was officially announced that he joined Smartly Dressed Games in September 2019, but was a notable community manager prior to that. Tyler can be contacted through the official SDG sites, by his Twitter, or via business email.



Unturned was Smartly Dressed Games' previous main project, but is still being developed alongside its sequel Unturned II. It is a zombie survival game, and originally started as a browser game before moving to Steam. Although the game was developed solely by Nelson, the game has featured various community-made content in the form of curated maps, cosmetics, and skins.

The game has gone through three distinct iterations: "antique," "classic," and "version 3." The game is available from its store page, and community features can be easily found through its community hub.

Unlike its first two iterations, version 3 features Steam Economy integration in the form of random daily playtime drops, a Community Market, and a developer-ran item store called the Stockpile.

Through a partnership with Tencent Games, a Chinese version of the game is developed by Hong and operated by UU.

Unturned II

Unturned II was an upcoming sequel to Unturned, and would have been a free-to-play survival game available on Steam.


Deadzone was created by Nelson Sexton as a game on Roblox in 2012. It is considered the spiritual predecessor of Unturned, and is no longer able to be played.
