Robert Simple's Blog


I am someone who has been studying games since I was a child and I have been creating a mathematical system for understanding and developing games.  I am available for reviewing and working on games that others are trying to create or update.  I have been involved in the entire game life cycle from design to implementation to testing.  I am completely fluent in C++ and have written many games using the windows API.  I look forward to hearing from anyone about general discussions of game theory or someone or some company that is interested in developing new kinds of games.  I will be writing articles and posting them to my blog to teach others about what I have created.
