Born in 1983 in Poland, studied Biology and Chemistry at secondary school and Spanish Philology at the University of Warsaw, and later at the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). In 2009/2010 I did a postgraduate degree in the area of Advanced IT Technologies at the University of Varmia and Masuria in Olsztyn, Poland. I'm running a private business called UmbraProjekt, dedicated to website design, and work as a PHP programmer for the local newspaper editor in my city.
I've never been a roguelike player, with the exception of ADOM, to which I used to be addicted for a long time. I've played it for over 10 years and have managed fo finish it only once (normal ending). Although I was close to a second win once :D.
No released roguelike games so far. I started coding Umbrarum Regnum in 2007 using Java, but quickly rewrote everything in C, using libtcod. The project was rewritten again about a year later, once more using libtcod, but this time in C++. The project is on hold since 2009, awaiting yet another complete rewrite using Umbra.
In 2009, I began developing Umbra, a general purpose framework for libtcod-powered applications. Soon after the first code made it to its SVN repository, jice joined the project. The engine is currently powering two games, both still in development: The Cave and Deliquium Solis. The first public release was on September the 19th 2010 (ARRP). It has seen notable upgrades since that date.
Daydreams and delusions
Also, I have been tempted to participate in a 7DRL contest one day - perhaps in 2011?
