This is the blog and personal page of Aleksandr Boyko.
Mostly about programming stuff. My native is Russian.

I’ve worked at Gaijin Entertaiment on PC and mobile games, engine and related tools. Mostly worked as general developer on mobile games.

I’ve started at 2008, at the beginning of the second wave of ex-USSR gamedev (after 2007-“industrion in the dark” period), and create games for iPhone/iPad platform almost from the very beginning. I made several published shareware windows games, and several ios/android games with proprietary engine (manually ported from cross-platform windows/next-gen consoles engine) with a small team.
Some of my personal story after 10 years in gamedev(in Russian).
