Mátyás Surányi (Mat)

Matyas is married, with two great kids. He lives in a small country in the European Union. His first computer was a Commodore 64 around '89, followed by an Amiga 500 in the middle '90s. At the end of the 20th century, he was the content builder of a roleplaying MUSH (the archetype of later MMORPG). He has been creating game prototypes ever since he could write and draw.

In computer games, he has a strong preference for turn-based strategies and fast-paced tactical simulations and he is also a keen tabletop player. Leading a small team, he won an MMO Strategy game a few years back that lasted about three years, following a strategy that every pro player had previously considered unwinnable.

As a professional coder, software architect and IT entrepreneur, Mat has over 16 years of experience and has worked for international corporations, distinguished technology specialists and some startups as well. He founded his own small business in 2010. He is a worshipper of efficient and well established team-work, and as a hobby, he has made the impossible possible a couple times.

Known Lairs:

Mark Elliott

Born in the heart of America's farm country (Iowa), Mark now calls the huge metropolitan area of Dallas-Ft Worth, Texas, home. He considers himself a honorary Texan although he refuses to wear the traditional 10-gallon cowboy hat! 

Mark came of age during the Atari/Commodore years and was on the forefront of the computer age with his Commodore 64 and Defender of the Crown game.  He was an early user of BBS boards and kept IT close through his college years (he even learned Pascal as a substitute for a math requirement)  while earning his degree in journalism.  As a member of Mat's winning MMO team at one point, they fostered a friendship that is still going strong.

He is a fan of MMO fantasy games (was one of the first players in World of Warcraft) and real-time strategy games.

If you're happy with us and you've learned everything you wanted about our project, he is doing a good job. If you are supporting us, he's eligible for a bonus (Currently being paid in virtual currencies. Thank you for your understanding - The Board)!
