My name is Marius Michel and I am one of those long time lurkers, who just love to read about the indie scene and well, tigsource is a very nice place to hang and read about great games from grwat guys and gals.
This post is written in the dark of the german night on my notebook, while starring into the cloudy sky, trying to get some inspiration, as I want to join the "A Game By Its Cover" competition.
To give you guys some infos about me...I am 30 years old since a couple of weeks ago and I am working as a programmer for a small company, producing laser diagnostic machines. About this time last year I was still working for a german videogames company, making such great "games" as "What's Cooking with Jamie Oliver for DS" or "Virtual Villages DS". As the economy wasnīt the best then (and thanks to a fucked up deal with Ubisoft), they had to let me go.
I am playing games for at least 20 years now and I do this on every normal machine you can think of and I am quite proud of my collection, as I could never sell a game anymore...my preeeeeeecious...
Some of my favourite games are things like Ultima 6/7, Final Fantasy 6, Monkey Island, Seiklus, Ico, Diablo 2m System Shock 1/2 etc. (I like RPGs and Adventures most).
I am always working on something game related, but very rarely had the strength to go through with a private game project, so I hope joining a competition pushes me a bit, so I finally finish something and have someone other then my wife, how shitty it is
And when I think about it...the only thing I ever released to the internet before was the demo for "Kings Quark 7 Part 2, Celine Dion is a stupid bitch" in Qbasic and I donīt think you can find this anymore (hopefully).
So...see you in a competition...bye...
