DEVELOPER

Programmed and designed by Manuel Martnez-Almeida.
I m fifteen years old and I have developed this and other games, but AbstractWar 2.0, which I am most proud.
Im an independent game developer and have always loved video games.
My resources are limited: an Ipod Touch and a MacBook, but I have great family and friends who support me.
My first video games was developed in Java for PC, I was given an Ipod Touch when I thought that developing a new game for this platform would be a good idea. I just wanted to try it, and do it the best I could.
Six months after the start the project, Im surprised and pleased with the final result. I didnt know anything about graphical programming when I started.

I hope you like AbstractWar 2.0 and my future projects.

Downloading now. Looks great. Only15? You should be proud of yourself. That's way better than anything I could have done at that age (or now to be honest).
