About me



My name is Predrag Pesic. I was born and raised in Belgrade, Serbia.


I started playing video games at the age of 7. Since then, I had played a countless number of titles released for C64, Amiga, PC, various arcade machines (Atari, Sega, Taito, Jaleco) and all the major consoles of the time (Sega Mega Drive 2, SNES, Playstation and X Box).


At the age of 12 I became interested in video games development. Along with my brother, I started developing games in various 'game makers' and 'editors' on C64, Amiga and PC. At the time, my main goal was to learn as much as possible about the game development proccess.


By the time I was 20, I had around 10 such 'game maker' titles under my belt. There were no releases, but they served as a great fun for me and my friends since the quality was on par with current professional releases and offered 4 to 6 hours of gameplay.
