Hey, I'm pekuja. I work at Housemarque as a gameplay programmer. I'm a recent hire, and I've only been working here since December.
In my spare time I like doing game jams, like Ludum Dare
and Global Game Jam
. I also run a website called Screenshot Saturday
that gathers screenshots of in-development games from game developers on Twitter.
And of course I like playing games, too. I started video gaming on a 286 PC back in 1990. Actually didn't own any consoles until I was an adult. My first console was a Game Boy Advance SP I bought with my own money in 2004. Some of my all-time favorites include Mega Man 2, Super Meat Boy and Portal, just to name a few. I'm all about challenge and trying to gain mastery of a game's mechanics. Trying to go for that high score, or just stretching the limits of how I can play a game. Not to say I'm super hardcore, but I can get a bit obsessed sometimes. Some of my crowning achievements would be 100% completion of Super Meat Boy, on both PC and Xbox 360 versions, and playing all the way through Battletoads (on an emulator, but I tried not to cheat too much...).
