Adrien Dittrick (born September 2, 1992), aka Supmaster004, is a hobbyist independent game developer mostly specializing in Freeware Games.
It took him 2 years to make the very long Nintendo Nightmare, which he started developing in 2007. Having recently discovered GameMaker, he decided to make a 3D game featuring many different characters from various video game universes.
In 2011, he took part in a 4-hour game-making jam with the theme of "Life". His goal was to make a game that interacted with the player's Real Life, and he was inspired by Lavender Town Syndrome. The end result was Escape From Lavender Town. The next day, judges posted the game on /x/ and it promptly went viral, with many YouTubers making videos of themselves playing the game.
He also has a number of (mostly unfinished) more serious games that center more around plot than abstract concept. Most of his work can be found here.

Tropes common to Adrien Dittrick's work:
- I Never Told You My Name: Predation and Escape From Lavender Town search for a username environment variable that it uses as the name of one of the characters. Ideally, this variable will be the name of the person who owns the computer—i.e., the player.
- The Most Dangerous Video Game: In Escape From Lavender Town, things quickly get out of hand once you "win" the game by figuring out the cryptic goal. For starters, The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You.
