Talking about: Starting Over

Along with long time friend and colleague, Craig Thomas, he formed Dlala Studios in June 2012. Throwing themselves head first into the company’s first game, “Janksy”, a space-based physics adventure. The goal was set – produce a high quality, highly enjoyable game in time to be ready for Windows 8 Launch.
As well as co-founding Dlala Studios, Aj has previously worked for award-winning studios such as Bossa Studios and Jagex Ltd. Working on titles such as the award-winning ‘Monstermind’ (Bossa Studios) and the epic, yet-to-be-released MMO ‘Stellar Dawn’ (Jagex).
Starting off working on small games in his parents’ living room, Aj’s career has took him to the new heights of working from his parents’ garage. You can find Aj on Twitter @dnost
