I am driven by the goal to bring those thoroughly enjoyable games to the masses that I enjoyed as a kid: those that inspire you, those that keep you hooked, those that don't need fancy 3D graphics.

My first creation, DUNGEONS OF CHAOS (AndroidApplesteam), was created painstakingly during my rare spare time over many years until its release in June 2016, and has since sold 20,000 copies.  People have responded with a 4.8 star rating, a successful Kickstarter campaign and a lot of direct feedback.  They want more.  More expansion of DoC, but also more games that follow the same philosophy.  And that philosophy was almost as important as the game itself: no unnecessary things like phone permissions, internet connectivity requirement, IAPs, micro transactions, ads ... just an honest upfront price and relentless customer service with hands on fan interaction and app updates.

So that is what I am setting out to do. I have put my dayjob on hold in April 2017, and am now focussing solely on game development.

I have many great projects in various stages of design:

First of all the DoC 'chapter 3' expansion which was kickstarted and released in June 2017. 

Second is the PC release of DoC.  Done on 16 Sep 2017.  

I will also eventually want to release it on GoG, however they seem to be not interested in titles after their day 1 release elsewhere.

Then there is a good bunch of other game ideas, using the RPG genre and merging it with city building, economy management, and many other enjoyable concepts.

Join me on my journey and support me in getting many more unique games out there.

You know you deserve great old school games.  In fact, everyone does!  So how can you relieve your conscience of the fact that not enough are being created?  Well, rest assured with your contribution I will make a difference.



And what do I give back to you?  On top of a heartfelt THANK YOU I give you Patreon updates of what my game projects are up to.  You didn't think you could mix RPG and tower defense and city building? Well, strap yourself in...

You are addicted to DUNGEONS OF CHAOS and want more?  You want it to grow and multiply? This sure helps, and you will also get more DoC goodness into your inbox!

You will not only get the Patreon updates and a big THANK YOU, I will also send you a personalised 8000x8000 high resolution DoC digital map of the island of Bracya.



(if you already have gotten that map due to a kickstarter reward, I will replace with a suitable other personalised digital asset)

You want to speed things up? You can't wait to get your hands on the next expansion or game?  Well, this will help a lot.  And if you want, become a part of it!

You can become a boss monster in DoC (if you wish): a side quest evil boss will be named after you or your former significant other.

You know how many hours you have enjoyed my games so far and want to give some love back?  Your pledge would go a VERY long way to keep me in business of making more games.

You get all the previous rewards, but also be included in the game credits of DoC as a significant supported.  And all my future games if still the case then.  

You truly make a difference and if you want to, I am happy to also share my draft game design thoughts with you at any time. My mind is full of ideas...

What can I say?  If you support me that much I will give my everything to get more cool games out.  And you are invited to be a alpha tester as soon as practical for each of them.  

See the ideas come to life!

A spinoff playing the evil guy launching hordes of mobs against the heroes and towns?  check.


See DoC expanded and chaos defeated? check.


City building and RPG amalgamation? check.
