History

Adam: When I was a kid I used to dream about making video games. I even tried to make some, but alas, didn’t quite have the right combination of ability and persistence to see them all the way through to completion. Now I’m older, mildly wiser, and just the right amount of naive to pull this off!

Ricardo: Games have been my passion ever since I first laid my hands on the Atari 2600 joystick! By the time I played with my spankin’ new NES, I knew I’d be a gamer for life. I also discovered an artistic vein in myself early on, sketching and painting for as long as I remember. So when these two interests clashed, the end result was obvious: I’d make art for video games!
