Fighting games have been an important and integral part of my life, shaping me as a person and allowing me to grow mentally. Through them, I met new people and have been exposed to new ideas which has contributed to me achieving a greater understanding of self. 

I find that people who play these games are often dedicated to a similar search for self and understanding.  They grow as you do and learning together is often a fulfilling experience.  I wouldn’t be as inspired as I am today without these games and people helping me.  As such I set out to create my own fighting game, one that I could be proud of and pay homage back to the ones that I really enjoyed. I want to share my feelings through my dedication and an opportunity to learn from these games. Perhaps even open the door for more people to want to play them.
