Hey fans! At first, let’s do away with formalities!
My name is Miroslav Vajas, I live in Bratislava, Slovakia and WideAngleGames studio is my hobby project since 2008.
I love sushi, martial arts, cartoons, hiking and almost everything I tried to experience (except the vacuum cleaning 🙂 ).
Currently I work as an Oracle DB expert, implementing complex database solutions for finantial institutions. Well, quite far away from game design.
If you ask me Why to hell is DB expert designing games? I would tell him this:
“Computer games are my passion since the early childhood and ZX Spectrum era. I like art of all kind and I take games as a specific type of art, where all other arts are mixing together: visual, acoustic, aestetic etc. Oh and one more thing, one guy said that making games is working with player’s emotions. He’s definitely right!”
Everything I do e.g. game design, art, sfx, game implementation or even this website you have visited I try to do as well as I know, with passion and devotion. Yes, it takes for centuries to do everything by myself, but who knows, maybe one day I’ll be swinging in an office chair as a CEO of billion dolar WideAngleGames company with 1000 employees, huh…just kidding! 🙂
Nevertheless I have 2 credos that push me forward every day:
“Never will I be of concern that my goals are too high for is it not better to aim my spear at the moon and strike only an eagle than to aim my spear at the eagle and strike only a rock?” (Og Mandino)
“Today I’m better than yesterday and tomorrow I’ll be better than today.” (unknown)
And what about yours?
