Cevat’s first game development experiences go back to the 1980s with the Commodore 64 and the Schneider CPC 6128, where he worked on various simulation games. While studying economics in the 1990s, he continued pursuing his passion of creating and playing games and began working towards his dream of founding a game development company.
