Who Am I?
My name is Travis Hintz. I am a currently enrolled student at Davenport University. I have recently obtained my associates and finished with a GPA 3.625. I am now pursuing dual bachelor degrees in Game Design and Biometics. I have been programming and creating games since I was 14. My first game I started to make was Erra Of War (yes, I know it's spelled incorrectly). The engine I used was Eclipse, which is created with VB6.0. Being 14 at the time, I self taught myself how to script and program with VB6.0. Sophmore year in high school, I decided to improve my programming skills. I took the Visual Basic and C++ classes that were offered. At that time, I decided to get into 3D programming and started using a program called Blitz3D. Now between school and self learning, I now know how to use professional 3D game engines like Unreal Engine.
How It All Started
Getting into the IT world is tough, getting hired by a game development company is even harder. Most entry level jobs require a bachelors and 4+ years of experience. So now I have decided to try to get around this problem myself. For the last 6 months, I have been designing a game, talking and becoming friends with professional 3D developer teams. I have also created a legal LLC in the state of Michigan called Lunar Source LLC.
Why Am I Here?
Being a college student, as we all know my own personal budget is very tight. However, we are very eager to get started on this project. I have already paid my character and npc modeling team over $2,000 for sketches and 3D models. Now I am here asking for money. Not only to fund a demo, but to help get my dream started. I am a very motivated person and will do everything I can to succeed.
