In early 2014 the game development community in Louisville, KY really began to grow thanks to GameDevLou and Global Game Jam 2014. With this influx of energy into the community, Mike and Barry decided to take their game development efforts beyond just hobbying around on the weekends. While putting more effort into refining their skillsets, they participated in game jams to practice and push those new skills. During Ludum Dare 30 they collaborated with local artist and designer Loi LeMix. This collaboration worked out wonderfully, and Roaring Cat Games was officially formed. Now the team is focused on creating new games with a little feeling, a little humor, and a lot of fun.
Loi, under the alias LeMix for all his authoring labels, is an Aluminum Extrusion Engineer by day and a full-fledged Creative Designer when given the time. Loi has participated in several small game projects in the past under various artistic roles such as Concept Artist, UI Designer, and 2D animator. With a passion for gaming since his first Hadouken in Street Fighter 2 on the Super NES - now as half of Roaring Cat Games, he’s continually seeking for the next big challenge in game art.
Barry is a full-time web and mobile software developer, part-time student, and constant player of games. Barry has been interested in making games from the time he realized it was someone's job to create those SNES games he obsessed over growing up. He has a love for strange worlds, odd characters, and simple fun mechanics. While he won't be illustrating any amazing assets, he will make sure the bits and buffers are running smoothly to highlight the work of the rest of the team.
