About Streetman Games

I caught the computer "bug" at a young age and I've never recovered. I've included a rare vintage photo of me with my Commodore VIC 20, my second computer. I seem to be referencing the (VIC-20) Programmer's Reference Guide there so I must have been writing my own program and experimenting when my mom shot the photo. Oh, it wasn't rare for me to be seen working on my VIC 20, and later on my Commodore 64. It was just rare that a photo was taken of me while hacking away at it.

My first computer was a Timex Sinclair 1000 (see photo) connected to a black & white television. These computers started me down a path that eventually lead to a career in technology and engineering.

Between getting the Timex Sinclair 1000 and the VIC 20, we got a Magnavox Odyssey 2 home video game console (see photo). Its stunning 200x100 pixel and 16 color display (hey, it was the very early 80s, so it was stunning to us) had my sister and I playing games for hours, producing fond memories, even if the graphics weren't that good in hindsight. One of the Odyssey games was the inspiration for the first game I decided to write as I've "battled" to learn an "alien" game development platform.

But all these laid the foundation to learn programming at a young age, interest in electronics and techology, and ultimately my career choice. And now it's led to a hobby that I work on as time allows after my work as a Broadcast Engineer, family needs, and church ministry. I released my first game, "UFO Battle" in August of 2022. Thanks for reading. Oh, and look to the sky and watch out for any alien UFOs the EDF doesn't intercept!
