I AM ME
Hi! My name is Willem Delventhal, and I am the Wizard of Joy. Did I say that already?
I have been building games and fantastical things pretty much my entire life. It all started on a fateful day at 15 years old.
That was the moment I half accidentally sold my very first video game. AddictingGames.com bought my lovingly entitled "Quick Draw Rangers" for a whopping $500. The moment that started it all.
Fast forward five years and I started my first business. House painting. Not my favorite. But I learned a lot of things and made some money. And most importantly I realized that I really liked building things from the ground up.
Now, I am a seasoned game designer and a business founder. And often a bit of both. I love making things that make people happy, and believe in working on projects that make the world a better place.
I practice Joy First Business. Where the bottom line is creating a more joyous environment for employees and a better life for users. And I am fascinated by Utopia. For a childish vision of the perfect future.
But through it all I'm still just that kid messing around with cool shapes on a computer screen. I'm just in it for a fun time. Not a long time.
