History

Early history

Game development has been my dearest hobby since the early 90’s. For me making games are the perfect combination of art and logic – an opportunity to stretch my imagination and create whole worlds that slowly come alive during development.

I have done numerous prototypes and “almost done” projects during the years, but only managed to release one title, Project AW (2001). The unpredictability of life made me drift away from games and I ended up making a career in business software instead. I never really saw games as a viable source of income and it had become just too time-consuming for me to keep as a hobby.

After a long hiatus I decided to reclaim my old hobby and started working on a Mega Man 2 remake, just for fun. I also started attending local IGDA meets and got acquainted with some nice people in the industry. Encouraged by the community, I decided to turn my retro remake into a commercial product, Giga Girl, and registered a business in hopes of some actual income.

Recent

Unfortunately Outgunned Games has not been profitable, so I’m continuing to work on games as a hobby. This means the development cycle will be very slow, but new games will come out… eventually.
