    I have been lurking this site for the past 6-7 years or so, never really bothered to create an account. I noticed one of my 3ds demos appeared on the wiki and said "ehh why not?"

    Anyway... I'm a 28 year old software engineer, with an interest in game development (though I don't do game development as my day job). I have been programming since I was 7.

    I have developed games for android, gba, ds, and the 3ds most of my work is available in my github account along with tools to assist in homebrew development. Interestingly enough, I got into GBA game making at the college I went to, it was a homework assignment to write a game for the GBA in C.

    I was also big on RMXP back in the day, producing about 70-100 mods to the engine mostly different battle systems for the engine.

    As for gaming I mostly enjoy retro games, especially rpgs, puzzles, and games with interesting mechanics. I currently own a Wii U and a New 3ds.

    Welcome, glad you could make an account here! It's fascinating you've done actual professional work with the 3ds before, it might be the first time I've seen a dev admit to that although I suspect there are more around here. Mind if could tell us which games you've worked on for 3ds? Totally understand if you want to keep silent on that subject. :P

    Thanks for the welcome!

    And yes I guess my wording there could have been better.

    I did not do any professional work with those systems, all of my work is homebrew. I don't make games for a living just as a hobby.
