Hey there, my name is LandmanHD. Below you'll find out more about me 🙂
LEVEL 31, HOOMAN
Now I'm a designer by day and gamer by night. I mainly play PC games and tend to neglect my consoles far too much. I enjoy immersive coop first person games the most. There's nothing like being on a foreign planet and being able to share moments with friends.

By day I am a UI and Graphic Designer. I am a hobbyist game developer, check out the links below...
I was 3 years old. My first experience with gaming was when my dad brought a ZX Spectrum home. To me this thing was amazing, a game I particularly remember was Ant Attack. It was an isometric game where you had to rescue your girl friend from monster ants. Games ran off of cassettes and would take FOREVER to load.
A few years later we got the Nintendo Family Computer, one of the games most played by my brother and I was Battle Toads vs Double Dragon. A game that often caused us to rage and fight. I then moved on to the Sega Master System and Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) afterwards.
My family went through some rough financial patches so the consoles disappeared. Finally and oddly, after growing up with consoles through the 8-bit and 16-bit era, I landed up with an old second hand 286 computer. This was certainly a step backwards (in terms of graphics because it had an orange monitor) but this PC allowed me to step into the realm of basic game development. A friend down the road had a Pentium 166Mhz, where we spent countless hours playing Age of Empires, Carmageddon 1, Commandos, Worms, Return Fire, Quake 1 and 2 and many other classic games. I was hooked on PC gaming and swiftly moved up to a Pentium 2 350Mhz with a 4Mb graphics card and 32Mb of ram. This was just before Half-Life 1 came out. Half-Life 1 was the game that REALLY opened up my eyes to the modding world and in turn game development. To this day Half-Life 1 is my favourite game of all time.
More to come....
