Description

Jibb Smart is an Australian indie developer in Canada, making vidya games on his own.

History

Early history

Jibb Smart began learning to make games at the age of 13, back in 2002, with Gamestudio. Since then he has done freelance work for other indie developers (mostly shaders and physics); written a game engine for Windows, Mac and Linux; earned his B.Sc Computer Science at York University; and is now putting the finishing touchs on his debut title, 'KarBOOM'.

After that

Jibb hopes to scrape by enough of a living with his first game to follow it up with some free updates in response to community feedback before working on any one of several dozen ideas he has planned for the next game. Failing that, Jibb intends to get a real job, probably as a cog in the profit-driven machine that is AAA game development. Yuck.

Awards & Recognition

Selected Articles

  • "Sumo wrestling with Micro Machines, and both of those things are great... KarBOOM allows for competition between eight players at once on one PC - something so incredibly rare for the platform that it really does deserve a special mention."
    - Rowan Davies, Dead Pixel Post (first look)
  • "We need more little arena games like this"
    - liamdawe, GamingOnLinux
