And so it begins. No hang on, that is a really bad way to start. I'm sure I recall my English teacher in year 11 saying that you should never start a sentence with the word 'and'. Actually, turns out I don't care - and neither do you.
I am presuming you are actually here for one or more of the following reasons:
you are a game dev interested in another game devs ramblings
you are a gamer interested in playing my games
you are from the press and want to learn more about me
you are here by mistake and would rather be tapping some click bait on some brainless borefest website with a list of 10 childhood celebs and what they are up to these days.
Whatever your reasons, please stick around - I am so glad you are here.
Hi, I'm Russ. Russell King from Bolton in England. Yes that one. At the time of writing I am 33 and I like to make computer games for your pleasure and/or procrastination. Why Kinoro Games you ask? Great question with a less than satifying response.
In a nutshell, about 14 years ago (has it been that long?!) a moderately successful online fantasy rpg was released. I needed a name for my avatar that sounded somewhat mystical to suit the theme. So I found a website that would generate a name based on your surname and some other random criteria. Out came Kinoro and it's stuck ever since. See... wasn't that spectacularly uninteresting? Great start Russ.
