Tim Tryzbiak - Portfolio

ootii is a 'mini-indie' game studio that I started back in 2011 after graduating from the Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy, UCF's award winning Master's program for game development.

I've been creating games and game prototypes ever since I taught myself to program when I was 14. Today, ootii is thriving and I'm lucky enough to be able to spend my days creating worlds I'm passionate about.

Below you'll find some of my more recent projects...

One way ootii funds its games is by selling tools to other game developers on the Unity Asset Store. These tools are used by hobbyists and professionals alike and provide me with revenue as well as feedback.

The feedback is important as I use the tools I sell in my own games.
