Description

MAUSMAUSgames is a One-Man-Indie-Developer-Team for mobile games.

History

Early history

The initial idea for MAUSMAUSgames was born when long-time co-workers illustrator Sebastian Wirth and writer Ogma Benedikt Hücker teamed up in 2012 to create a children's book about a small monster called Ukrry-prr-kuatzl. Wouldn't it be nice to have an interactive and animated version of this book too, they asked themselves.
So Ogma Benedikt Hücker started to teach himself how to code for mobile devices. But then Sebastian Wirth died in a car accident and the whole idea was scratched.

From Ukrry to MAUSMAUS

Everything changed after that. Ogma moved from Berlin to the countryside. For a whole year and a half there wasn't time to think of continuing work on the project. It wasn't before 2014 when he started to evaluate the possibility of creating mobile apps and games again. There wasn't any doubt that he couldn't go through with the original plan. With Sebastian gone, that project's creative mind, heart and soul was gone too.
Ogma decided to start a smaller less story-driven project first in order to teach himself how to create mobile apps. So the idea for JEX was born. After reading and learning a lot about coding and game design, he began to work fulltime on JEX in early 2015. He returned to Berlin. MAUSMAUSgames was formed.

What's a MAUSMAUS?

"Maus" is the german word for "Mouse" and "Mausmaus" was the nickname Ogma called Sebastian in the nine years they worked together.
MAUSMAUSgames' logo is based on a drawing of a mouse by Sebastian Wirth, which he created a couple of month before his death.
By calling this project MAUSMAUSgames, Ogma wants to honor the memory of his late collaborateur and partner.

How to spell and pronounce MAUSMAUSgames?

Please spell MAUSMAUSgames always in one word. MAUSMAUS in capital letters.
Maus (IPA: /maʊ̯s/) is pronounced almost exactly like the english word "Mouse".
Just say "Mouse-Mouse-Games" ;-).
