Ruxar is a huge multinational games company with global offices in all major capital cities, well not really…let me start again. Ruxar is a one man band publishing mobile games out of Newcastle, Australia on a shoestring (if any) budget. The goal of these games is to give people a little chuckle while having an engaging experience. Daniel Spruce, the leader of said one man band has been working for software companies as a developer and various other things now for 10 years primarily dealing with Microsoft technologies.


Early History

Early days revloved around using Microsoft technologies that were similar to my current day to day work. Finding the time for games has always been a challenge, fitting in development time with a full time job and a young familiy is not as easy task. Added to this was my wife's relucctance to spend our life savings on my shitty game ideas and you can tell what a tough time it was. Originally I produced a number of games to dip the foot in and learn the craft somewhat.


Moving to a devlopment platform that allows games to be published to a number of formats has opened up a number of new avenues for distribution. Currently working on a action platform game called iZBOT which is named after my daughter izzy.
