virtex edge design

In 2015 I started Virtex Edge Design, a Software and Game Development Studio. Virtex has put out two Mobile and Desktop titles and has two more desktop titles on the way!

I also developed an in-house cross platform engine called Vertices, an in-house developed game engine based in and built from the ground up in C#. It uses MonoGame as it’s back end allowing it to run cross platform on PC, OSX, Linux, iOS and Android.

Scroll below to see some of the games that have been developed with Vertices.

I’ve released some Open Source tools as well through Virtex, namely Iris Web Viewer, an online model viewer.
