Andrew Joy

Andrew specialises in programming game mechanics - from weapons systems to dialogue trees, and everything in between. He believes that the atmosphere of a game is just as important as the core mechanic and so focuses heavily on the ‘small details’, such as juicy transitions and interactive feedback.


Upon graduating from university in 2010, Andrew was offered a spot on a virtual world research team - where he spent the next 3 years building MMORPG-like systems for the medical and tertiary education industries. Eventually his desire to make ‘real games’ grew, and alongside a few like-minded individuals he founded 2Bit Studios.

Before Richard Stallman 2.0 disappeared from the Virtual Web, never to be seen again, he distributed a groundbreaking new manifesto called Raptor.

In response, the wealthy United Peace Corporation of tech giants created B.O.M.B. - the Big Ol’ Malware Bomb, a suite of bugs, viruses, worms, and overly-helpful paperclips that eventually wiped out all traces of Raptor.
