Hello, my name is Vladimir Hrincar and I am an ‘indie’ game developer, 3D graphics programmer and one big fan of Japanese pop culture!
Vladimir was born in early ’80s in the little city called Poprad in Slovakia but now he resides in Prague in the Czech Republic for almost a decade. He came to Prague to pursue a study at Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University in 2002. He obtained his master degree after majoring in computer science in the fall 2008. After a second year at university he has started to work as a part time software engineer where he was a member of development team behind NIS-Elements – the number one imaging software for the microscopy by Nikon Corporation. During those early years he quickly gained precious experience which eventually turned him to full time senior engineer responsible for 3D computer graphics and visualization. His greatest long-time project, an advanced volume renderer was his favorite and things like that made him one happy graphics programmer for quite some time. But after 7 years he finally decided to move on and left the company. He co-founded a little indie studio called Hyperbolic Magnetism which now runs together with his friend. As a guy who considers himself a reborn indie game developer he is definitely one of those lucky guys who love their job very much.
