Hey! I’m Tyruswoo, a hobbyist indie Game Designer. My expertise is in story development, collaborative development of gameplay vision, and level design. On this site you can find my plugins and tutorials for RPG Maker, BYOND, and Minecraft!
Embarking on a Journey in Game Design
My journey in game design began when I was thirteen, when my older brother handed me a C++ textbook. Little did I know the adventures this would bring! I learned that programming has its own languages, and in those days, mine was C++. I only knew how to output text, with no graphics, but even with those limitations, I began designing my own games. I hit a point in the book when my self study of the language could bring me no further, so my pursuit of game making was put on hold. But the thrill of game design could not be forgotten!
The Team Unites
During high school, I began learning the language of BYOND, which is an easy to learn yet powerful tool for the creation of online multiplayer games. This was perfect for me, and in just two weeks of a Christmas break, I created my first publicly released multiplayer game, Space Blast. My friends McKathlin and Shompta joined me in my project, and from that time on, our team was united by a passion for game development! During these early days, our team also released our second game, the multiplayer online RPG Lost Legends. At the time (early 2000s), these multiplayer online games were impressive accomplishments, and were played by thousands!
Our team had forged a bond, but college took us our separate ways. McKathlin completed a degree in software engineering, and Shompta went into business. I maintained an interest in game design, and also began working on independent projects, including technical Minecraft creations and tutorials that I post on my YouTube channel.
All these endeavors gave our team experience. And with many of our goals accomplished, the time was ripe for a new development project!
