Theory Georgiou

I enjoy art and programming and I consider programming an art. By day I'm a web developer / designer and by night I love challanging myself with game design. It's a game in and of itself, which is probably why so many indie's exist.

I've been making game prototypes for about 10 years now. Before learning to code I filled notebooks with made up game stats and characters. I love it, I can't stop.

The Studio

Skull Skill Studios was established upon realizing indie games can be much more than a hobby. This is a life-long passion for a lot of people, I am proud to be one of them. Currently still working as a Web Developer by day and on our dream game projects at night and on weekends. Brian creates graphics for other mobile games while we design Fire with Fire.

The Team

I originally found Brian while surfing graphic art boards, and Stephan became involved in the project after I asked to share the idea of Fire with Fire on his internet radio show the R9Cast. It's a coincidence that we all happen to reside in Florida, USA.

Fire With Fire Tower Attack and Defense

Once making the decision to create a publishable game, we had to choose the right idea to run with. I chose an online tower defense because I felt that tower defense could be so much more than clone after clone of the same thing; it's time to innovate the genre.

How? Fire with Fire features player vs player online tower attack and defense battles and an ever expanding library of towers and creeps to choose from. We have created a higher detailed player experience than most tower defense games with vibrantly contrasting visual themes and dynamic music progression on every level. The game will be available for cross-platform play on multiple platforms, giving players the ability to play with each other regardless of platform they choose. We think this innovation will become popular with other games in the years to come and we are excited to be a part of it.
