The second half of 42BYTES on the keyboard here – yBYTE. This is my very first blog post (ever!) and I want to tell you guys a bit about myself – let’s see if someone will read this at all. 🙂
I am 34 (sounds pretty old) and have been interested in computers all my life. Wrote my first computer game when I was 12 (on a Schneider system if anyone knows what that is) in Basic if I remember that correctly. To edit a single line I had to type “EDIT: 10” and then work on that line and save it. Took me weeks to write a 10kb program… (it was a fishing game where one could select a spot at a lake and some bait and then wait… let’s say it wasn’t really that exiting.)
Every now and then I started building a game but never really pushed through and published it. Which is a bit sad as I think (as we all do) that I have great ideas – and could never give you all the opportunity to play one of the incredible games I could make :D.
Now I teamed up with xBYTE and founded 42BYTES with her to change exactly that. She will be responsible for Marketing and Graphic Design while I am the Hacker and Game Designer – but she’ll tell you more about her part another day. The most important goal for us is to actually publish games – not just doodling around. So stay tuned for updates and follow us on our social media profiles.
At the moment we are busy setting up everything and getting used to all the tools we use, Unity and Inkscape for example, setting up Facebook, Twitter, Email Accounts, etc. etc. We are also working hard on the prototype for our first game which we will show you as soon as we can.
Thanks for reading and keep building awesome games folks!
