ForTheWin in a relatively new and very small startup aiming to make engaging, fun games that draw the player back in for another round!

From homebrew beginnings, our founder started learning about game programming and design by being a part of the GP32 homebrew scene. Helping make a handful of games for the GP32 along with maintaining some ports to the system. Inspired by the GP32/GP2X/Pandora communities, he pursued his schooling.

Pursuing his goals, he went to Medicine Hat College for Information Technology – Programming Stream. Although it wasn’t game-oriented, the programming, database and design courses were definitely applicable to his end goals. So, he headed to Vancouver Film School for Game Design. An intensive one year course, it was a blast and overwhelming at the same time. Smart Shopper was born out of the final project for the course and is probably one of my favorite, yet also most loathed of any project I have worked on to date.

Getting out of school just meant having to deal with all the debt it had incurred. So it was decided, the skills are there, it’s time to start working on some killer games!
