About

Who Am I?

My name is Olivier Boucard, I am in my thirties. I was born in Brittany, France, but I move a lot.

What is my education?

I have a Master degree in software engineering with a specialty in Computer-Human Interaction.

What technology I use to develop game?

When I started, I was developing in C++ using SDL and OpenGL. Then I move from SDL to Qt. Right now I use Godot Engine. This is a great Open Source alternative to Unity. It is not as feature full for the moment but the community is amazing and the project develops very quickly.

Do I have any games out?

No, I was never able to go through a full game development. I have a a long list of prototypes though. The main reason is that I always underestimate the complexity of developing the game as I imagine it. As it is just a hobby I don't have a lot of time, the game develops slowly and then I have a new idea and get side-tracked. I do wish to get a full game out at some point.
