I'm a solo developer who was using Atari home computers and playing Colecovision console before I was out of diapers (yes, I got out of diapers at the normal age), and coded my first program at age 7. Computers and video games have always been in my life, even before they were a staple household item.
Looking back, I see games have come a long way, and some incarnations have exceeded my loftiest dreams of childhood in the types of experiences they can offer. At the same time, I love how retro games recapture that elemental purity of the first and second generation of video games, whose blocks of light and color lit up my imagination.
My goal as a solo developer is to recreate the simple, instant fun of days gone by. Working with others, I also hope to craft compelling, immersive stories, and make some more of those childhood dreams a reality.
