ABOUT THE FOUNDER (hey! That's me!)

My name is Diego Wasser. On the Internet, I've been known as "Razorwings18" for over 15 years. I was born in 1980, and have been a gamer ever since my parents got a Commodore 64 when I was 4 years old.

I first got interested in coding at age 8, making batch files on the C64's Basic. It was a few years later, at 13, that I programmed my first proper game: a graphic adventure using a text parser and ASCII graphics, coded in Turbo Pascal. Since then, game programming has been a nearly non-stop hobby for me.

In 1998, along with a partner, we programmed a Real Time Strategy game engine for our thesis, which we showcased on a Microsoft-sponsored event.

Between 2002 - 2004 I was a simulation games reviewer for one of the most important gaming websites in Argentina, the now-defunct Alkon.

In 2003, I was contacted by Microsoft to lead the introduction of its Flight Simulator 2004 product in Argentina, where I gave a couple of conferences, as well as interviews on national news and cable TV shows.

In the next few years, my best known work was a Speech Recognition application for gaming named PiLfIuS!, which got a user base surrounding the 250,000 mark. Unexpected to me, it was also found useful by disabled persons.

Byte Conveyor Studios is my attempt at turning my long-time hobby into a profession, with "AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron" being the project that will make or break it.
