Maciej Miasik studied computer science for several years but the studies required him to sacrifice his greatest passion - personal computers and programming, therefore he decided to quit studies and start just developing games. Together with a friend - Janusz Pelc
- formed a two person team Chaos Works
which developed back in 1991 for xLand Games the first Polish, professional quality PC game - "Electro Body" - when released, the best selling PC game in Poland ("Electro Body" is still the legendary game among many PC users). "Electro Body" (as "Electro Man") along with 2 other titles developed by the same 2 persons was later published as "Epic Puzzle Pack" worldwide by Epic MegaGames
, then shareware games giant. Later the expanded Chaos Works team developed in Poland "Fire Fight" shooter for Electronic Arts
- one of the very first Windows 95 games in the world. "Fire Fight" was named "best shooter" by the US edition PC Gamer in 1996, unfortunately the game went unnoticed due to complete lack of any marketing from EA. Maciek left Chaos Works and joined Detalion team at the beginning of development of "Reah: face the unknown". Together they also developed "Schizm: Mysterious Journey
" adventure game.
Maciek was one of the co-founders of Detalion s.c.
