Description

Changing diapers during the day and indie game developer (by heart) at night.

History

Then

Simon Cubasch aka Firepunchd made his first games on a VIC-20 back in 1984. He studied photography in Germany and California before founding the digital agency “gosub communications” in Berlin in 1998. With gosub he created over 20 games for national and global brands from live 3D TV games to Augmented Reality applications to mobile games.

Now

He recently quit his agency job as creative director after a severe burnout to start to work fulltime on his games AND spend some time with his 3 kids and his wife.
