Description

Bombajam is a tiny games studio that aims to produce fun and accessible video games for iOS devices. Jakob draws the pictures from New York City, while Ben writes the code from Melbourne, Australia. Their first game, Shade Dogs, was created to entertain their nieces, nephews and other young game players. Their next game will likely involve time travel, a haunted school, or a pennyfarthing.

History

Ben is a programmer with a passion for making games and graphics software. He finished his PhD in 2011, in which he researched biologically-inspired algorithms for generative computer graphics, and left academia in 2012 to focus on making games.

  • "Shade Dogs is excellent fun. ItÂ’s the kind of game that I found myself diving into every now and then, just to work through a couple of levels before going back to my day. It'd be all the more appealing to families looking for a title to play together. Oh, and did I mention the dogs are adorable?"
