About

My avatar

Hello I'm quackgyver. I've been making indie games for 22 years. I started out using QuickBASIC, Klik & Play, OHRRPGCE, RPG Maker and a lost game design toolkit called the ACE RPG maker (or something like that - I haven't been able to find it again) and have since moved on to Construct, GameMaker and Unity.

I mainly make games that look and feel like they could've been made in the '80s or '90s, and that's why I eventually founded the retro game design studio and community Astrojone, where we've been making games and helping other aspiring game designers since 2005.

On this page you'll find game development articles written by me, my projects that are aimed at helping other game developers as well as information about my games.
