I'm a 29 years old geeky guy called Ayoub but you can call me 'GhAyoub' or 'Youbageek' as
My last studying year was so special as I won the local Imagine Cup 2014 and got the second place in Pan-Arab version in the game category.
As a result, my collegues and I decided to open a company to continue working on our game. Sadly, due to lack of experience and investors who found it strange to invest in games in my country we quit in an early stage.
Having the entrepreneur mindset, I decided to join a startup and try to help spreading my knowledge and learn more.
That's when I joined NukedCockroach as a UI/UX Game Developer and become after 4 years a Senior Game Developer working on Veterans Online.
I'm fueled by my passion for learning new stuff everyday by digging deeper
and asking questions.
Being a hardcore Dota2 player I considered my self lucky to work on a multiplayer battle arena top down shooter game! In addition, being in a startup means that you have to work on almost all aspects of the game; from developing systems (e.g. inputs, customization..etc.) , implementing server side features to developing editor based systems to help designers and automate the workflow.
Veterans Online is an online multiplayer action shooter that puts players right in the front line of an epic warfare. Soldiers run amok in the battlefield trying to outsmart opponents with a slew of tricks from a well-placed mine to a perfectly timed grenade throw, among many other attack options at their disposal.

It was a pleasure to talk to Mr. Takumi
Analyst at Media Create
We started talking about my education at ESPRIT, my love to video games and how it influenced my career and also about the different abroad experiences.
After that, we talked about my current job at Nuked Cockroach; what I do, what's the future of the game "Veterans Online" and much more.
Promoting Arabic countries' games was something that I was looking forward to...for a long time.
The chance has come to talk and gather all the game development community in one place: Arabic Games.
My talk was an overview of the character customization in Veterans Online.
