Everyone of any age plays. We all do it. Some of us play cards, others play sports, and others play social games, but we all play games. So I don't get why video games are taking the blame for everything people don't want to understand. Back in the day it was rock music, comics and TV, nowadays it's TV, rock music and video games.
I have been an active game developer for years. While there was a time when I thought that games were the medium I identify most with, I had to learn the hard way that sometimes things are not what you believe they are. Games are fun and I will probably never stop developing them, but as far as identification goes, they have fallen far behind comics, video and music making. That does not mean that I don't like it any more, I just think that I am better suited for writing and directing than game design. In the end however, the game development scene made me what I am today. And that is a good thing. :)
Nowadays I focus mostly on developing 2D games that look and play like they did twenty years ago. I create games for all ages, some are free, some are commercial but all of them are dear to me. If you are interested in old school and retro, here are free PC games. Download them, play them, share them, all is well. The more people play my games, the better for everyone, so please, take a look at them. I am rather proud of those and I believe they are solid enough and deserve a chance. Like with all my games, I wrote all storylines and composed the music myself, with help from a few people in other areas like graphics or code. I hope you enjoy playing them.
This free game is also set within the world of "The Gaya Fantasy" and puts you into the boots of Mykroft, a young apprentice who is traveling with his master to undo a mistake of the past. Little do they know, however, that evil looms on the horizon. An ancient evil is about to be reborn and only the Requiem of Spirits is powerful enough to stop it. Whatever that is, however, or where to find it, is up to you. On your way you will meet interesting people and fight terrifying monsters. Just like in JRPGs from the 90s, you'll experience the story and music while solving riddles, conquering dungeons and leveling up your party. An epic quest lies ahead of you. You can download the game here.

This is a tale about revenge. Rato is a young demon hunter who arrives in a besieged village. He is on his way to the Lady of the Castle to ask her for aid in his search for revenge. This is a stage based strategic RPG. Rato will fight on his own but you are there to watch his battles. Each battle move consumes a Soul Gem and you have to make sure that Rato never runs out. That means exploring the world in search for gems, choosing your battles wisely, investing in some good equipment and sometimes even running from battle. If you enjoy your RPGs with a taste of strategy and maybe some luck, this one is for you. You can download it here.
