Hi I’m Vorun; I’m married to a wonderful wife and we have 3 awesome children. I work for a tech company, and in my spare time I make apps and games as a hobby with my two young sons for the last few years. Making games started out as a way to get both of my sons interested in coding since it’s one of my passions.

0. Tell me a bit about yourself and team.

We’re Zak and Max Nelson, two brothers from Washington State and we make up Applepine Games. We both come from computer science backgrounds and before this we were working respectable jobs at Adobe and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. We’re programmers at heart, something that should be readily apparent when you see the art in the early levels (although we use that to our advantage and call it Kid Art).
