In 2015, I started developing a game engine and a small game as a hobby besides my job working as a team leader and product manager for a software company. As time passed, the game engine got better and more powerful and also the game got bigger and bigger. By the end of 2016, I quitted my job to found my own company - Benjamin Rommel Games. In September 2017 the game was published as Galactic Crew on Steam. In 2018, the production on the new adventure game Monkeys & Dragons started and results in its Early Access release in December.
