Mr Mel Georgiou

Online Offline
With a solid background in Product Design, I have specialised as a freelance developer of the Unity3D platform. I am fluent in C# and JS as well as being proficient in most ( if not all ) aspects of cross-platform game development including game mechanics, UI, AI, state machines, pooling systems, and physics systems. My experience includes action games, RPGs and even flight simulators. Latest commercial titles include: - "Post Brutal", a mature post-apocalyptic RPG for iOS and Android. - "Ninja Guy", the cult action game that reached the top 15 in the Appstore. - "Flight Unlimited", a flight sim series for iOS. - "Man In A Box", a unique artist experience. I also excel in both commercial and in-house custom editor tools for Unity that offer unique productivity and optimisation features. Some of these are actually publicly available on the Unity Asset Store and have been well received by my peers, still holding a 5 star rating after many years.

I personally contract for companies world wide (via my company Hell Tap Entertainment LTD) to develop applications, games and other software-based technology for mobile, desktop and the web.

Flight Unlimited

Nov 2011 - Jun 2017 (5 years)

My first private project, contracted by TAS games (later Flight Systems, LLC). Flight Unlimited has been acclaimed by many to be the most visually impressive flight Simulator on the iPhone. An interesting fact about this project is that it took me just 15 work days beginning to end to complete version 1.0, which to the delight of my employer made the project both very affordable and fast to release. I've contracted for Flight Systems part time for the last 6 years.

Post Brutal

Post Brutal, an ultra violent post-apocalyptic action RPG is the first commercial game I've released using my own company's brand ( Hell Tap Entertainment ). The coolest thing about Post Brutal is the ability to capture your own face and voice and truly become the hero of the zombie apocalypse.
