I coded for the first time when i was 8, and i didn't know it :-). It was in Basic on a Genius 6000 (Vtech). I created texted games and it was awesome for me.
Today i'm a software developer and still looking for games creation for fun.
I didn't create a lot of games but i spend my time to test what i want, and then i try something else. I tested a lot of game engines, programming languages, coding platforms, and tried to export to a lot of different devices.
My next goal is to create something for snes/gbc/gba/genesis consoles.
