Nael Jazar

Programmer

Naels experience with making video games began in 10th grade when he submitted his final project for Intro to Computer Science; 200 single spaced pages of QBasic code that, when compiled, would play a little game featuring a fearless Helicopter (a green box) facing down hordes of monstrous foes (red boxes). It was pretty lame and the game crashed if you tried to fly off screen but it planted a seed that would continue to grow from that day forward.

Naels work experience includes engineering design at Blackberry and Evertz Microsystems and more recently Mechanical & Electrical Systems Coordination at Ellisdon Ltd. Nael has since veered off of the parental approved path of traditional engineering ladder climbing to pursue his long time passion for making video games. He hopes for his next game to feature more complicated, multi-coloured polygons. His other interests include electronics, sad music and trolling old politicians who don't know how to use Twitter
