Maciej Biedrzycki

Chief Game Architect and Strategy Overseer

When others were learning how to read, Maciek was already writing his first programs in Basic and, later, in other programming languages. Years later, together with a high school friend, he began working on an epic crpg game called Spellscape. Although the game was never finished, it made a huge impact on his career. During his studies, he gathered other game enthusiasts and founded Poland's first game development university major. But rendering semitransparent boxes and optimizing pathfinding algorithms wasn’t enough for him. He wanted to work on games on a commercial level. Without any hesitation, he cofounded his first game development studio, Codeminion. After some tough beginnings, the two-person studio created its biggest hit: Magic Match. From this time on, it began expanding and releasing widely acclaimed casual games.

The company was doing great but Maciek realized that he wanted to do something even bigger and better. Something that had been sprouting in his mind for quite some time. And that’s how the idea behind Return 2 Games was born.

He is meticulous, and his (sometimes pathological) attention to detail forces him to work hard on anything he believes in, whether it's polishing particle effects in games or composing and playing music.

Maciek is a huge horror movie fan and Star Trek enthusiast. He knows the captain's room number on the U. S. S. Enterprise and the Galaxy-class vessel’s maximum warp velocity. He will buy, take or steal anything dinosaur-related (from actual bones, to dinosaur-shaped candy).

If you ever have to give him bad news, be sure to preface it with Pekin Duck or a white chocolate dessert. This should put him in a good mood.
