About Au 79 GamesPress
I started Au 79 Games in 2011 in order to have a little "company" to call my own. Truth is, it's a one-man-show. My name is Macoy Madson. Being unable to access learning on my own, all that I have learned was attained completely by me. I've had no mentor, no one with experience, nothing but the internet and the amazing people on it. This is my resume of sorts.
Like I said before, I have not had any formal education whatsoever. This doesn't put too much of a damper on things as experience is typically the best way to learn in this industry.
I have picked up a few things that I am confident in using. These things are:
Sadly, I don't have much of that either. I started creating games in 2009 and haven't stopped since, but I don't have very much to show from the years that have passed so far.
Other than creating games I love anything to do with technology (like web development, electronics, and robotics). Techo-based music is usually my favorite (The Glitch Mob, C418 for relaxing, most trip hop), with the occasional classical and film score music (Two Steps From Hell). Sports-wise, I am a distance runner.
Open source software is the key to the growth of technology as a whole. My belief in this has moved me to always follow open source principles, so you can check out all of my code here.
There are several reasons why it's awesome to create games. If you want to know why I really love to make games, check out what I wrote for Ludology University.
