About Me

Being fortunate to be a kid growing up in 1980’s, I was lucky enough to follow the development of home game console market.
I was always more interested in how the games were designed and made, rather than actually playing them. I still remember Christmas (1982, I think) when I received a Spectrum 48K computer. This device changed my life – a home computer you could play AND make games on.
