|tjgames is a
tall indie game designer who lives in the Pacific
Northwest and takes care of critters fur a living. Has a
website called tjgames.com where he has some of the
games that he created. tjgames is Tim Schutz and Tim
Schutz is tjgames.
He loves games and has been
playing them since he was small and played many of the
classic games from that era (the 60s)...Clue, Monopoly,
Life, Mouse Trap, Yahtzee to name a few. As he got tall
he continued to play board game and card games. He
studied electrical engineering and worked in the arcade
game business for many years...pinball machines, video
games, simulators...etc. The best thing about the arcade
business was making sure the games worked properly,
which required testing...sometimes a lot of testing.
He currently co-owns a
pet sitting business with his wife and mostly walks dogs
for a living...which is cool because it allows you mind
to wonder while you walk; of course you need to focus a
little on the dog and surroundings. But, you can also
think about many other things while you walk;
life, religion, games, the cosmos, current events,
games, how did that giant rock get here, games again.
Note: walking is done best without earphones or a screen
in front of you; just the leash, the dog and your
thoughts...and some poop bags in your pocket.
