39 years old guy from Denmark. I work as a Full-Stack developer and make/play games in my spare time.

Been programming since I was about 7 years old, so I have a bit of experience.

Started with BASIC on the C64 and moved on to the Amiga later using BlitzBasic. On PC I started using DarkBasic Pro. Moved on to Java once I started my Education.

I started using LightWeight Java Game Library(LWJGL) and then LibGDX. At some point I got tired of writing engines all the time and I wanted to focus on the actual gameplay instead.

Initially I tried HaxeFlixel, which is great, but I ended up settling on GameMaker Studio 2 because the whole IDE makes it so easy for you to get things done.

I have also dabbled in Unity, but I decided it was too big for what I wanted to do. Which is mainly 2D retro/pixelart games.
