Motivation

Ever since I was a little kid I always paid special attention to games creation and started building my own sequels whenever I thought the original to be disappointing. Today I focus on creating new titles and unique mechanics. My goal is to create believable worlds and to discover innovative and fun ways of interaction. Seeing the joy and emotion such work can instill in others, brings a smile to my face every time. Most of the time I generate new ideas or guide friends flesh out ideas for games they envision. I consider creating and designing games that work realistically to be my major strength. I iterate many versions of games in my head to jump-start production. Once team production starts, I try to help wherever I can and I am also eager to learn whatever is necessary to finish the product.
