I’ve always programmed games. Before I had a computer I designed games on paper as a kid 🙂 My first games were written on a Commodore 64 and a Macintosh LC with HyperCard: a roleplaying game and a classic “Lucasarts style” point-and-click adventure.
At the university I learned Pascal and Java and many others, some almost too horrible to mention (Fortran77, cause Fortran95 was too modern! Thanks professor! Core dumps for days.). I didn’t like Pascal much and C seemed the computer equivalent of juggling with portable nukes, but I fell in love with Java. I also learned good software design and programmng techniques. I love that there’s a lot of creativity in it. I made my thesis in Java, a small simulation with horrible AI, well, at least it got me interested in the field of AI.
Making games is a passion and lately I’m even succeeding in releasing some of them. The past few years I’ve been working on a number of games. It’s a hobby, it’s fun but it’s also another way to confront us with the way we perceive society. An early version of one of them was released already: Just Another Day at the Office. I’m updating that with better graphics and more levels. I’m also working on a few more games, and yes there will be some feminist games 🙂
A few years ago I worked at the universities of Ghent and Brussels to develop their elearning systems – based on the open source course management system Dokeos (php/mysql).
These days I work as a freelance web designer. You can find all the info about that on my web design site.
