Biography edit · view history

Taron began his game development career as an independent developer while working in technical support, QA, and as a technical writer in game-related projects. During this period he created several game guides, mods, maps, utilities, and freeware games for multiple platforms. Most notable of these were his custom-scripted maps for StarCraft and WarCraft III and the freeware Windows PC game Minebot Arena.

In 2004 Taron joined licensed handheld games developer Griptonite, where he worked as a game programmer for popular franchises such as X-Men, Spyro the Dragon, Spider-Man, Assassin's Creed, and Shinobi. While there he developed a reputation for his focus on quality and fun game mechanics, and was often responsible for designing and implementing the player controls and combat systems for action-packed side-scrolling platformers.

In early 2012, soon after Griptonite was absorbed by a freemium social/mobile games company, Taron left to create Crazy Viking Studios, a 2-man game studio where he designed and programmed the indie game Volgarr the Viking, and eventually ported it to all major platforms. In late 2022 he left the company and became fully independent again.
