Welcome to gaz.autos – My name is Gareth Murfin (see my main portfolio here which is mostly mobile apps) I have 12 years of almost daily Unity experience and I am very experienced in C# for Unity. Here I will showcase some of my Unity work. I am a highly passionate game designer and developer who is able to make the magic come true. I started making games as a child on the ZX Spectrum and later moved to Amiga, Playstation, Mobile, PC, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.
After completing my Computing Science degree at Stirling University I joined the legendary Rockstar North and worked on GTA Vice City in Edinburgh, UK.
After that I did a Masters degree and ended up as lead developer at DC Studios in Glasgow UK. In 2004 I went fully freelance and moved to Taipei City in Taiwan, where I hold a gold card visa in software development allowing me to work for anyone I want to. Usually my clients are from UK or South Africa.
If you have an idea and crucially the funding, we can do it! I have developer licenses for xbox, nintendo switch and playstation 4 and 5. We can go from your idea on paper to it being released physically on consoles, web and desktop. Or if you are looking for a contractor, look no further.
Please note: although I am working remotely outside of the UK (I’m from Newcastle Upon Tyne), please be assured that I actually work UK times anyway due to the fact that most of my clients in the last 20 years are from London. This is no problem, actually it’s better waking at 2PM than 9AM 🙂 So please don’t let my location put you off (I am always available on Skype or Slack/Discord etc). Please see my main portfolio for the vast array of UK brands I have worked for successfully whilst being out here.
So what awesome brands have you developed for remotely?
