About Us

Yargies is a one man studio based in Montreal, Canada.

History

Ten years ago, after obtaining a degree in Biochemistry, I was working in a biology lab studying the mating patterns of a common bread mold in the name of science. Fast forward to now, past a Master’s Degree, and a brief foray into data science, my life consists mainly of writing code, dreaming of creating over-ambitious games, and designing mobile games. I couldn’t be happier. Yargies Games is the culmination of all my hard work and learning. My goal is to create casual but smart games for all ages.

Technical

I program mainly in C++. I like using the cocos2d-x game engine because it is lightweight, open source, and well suited towards building 2d games for mobile. I write the server backends in Python. I use PostgreSQL for storing data, and AWS for hosting.
