GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) — An interest in video games that began in early childhood led Buchholz High School junior Noah Hunter to start his own game design company named Raptor Studios.
Less than a year after founding the company, Hunter released its first major game.
“The name of the game is Sanguine Heir and sanguine means blood red and describes the main villain of the game. Throughout the game, you fight an army of skeletons who have taken over your kingdom, so you try to fight them to save the kingdom,” Hunter described.
The free game is available for download on a Windows computer.
Hunter described his style of game design as old school resembling those of the late 90s and early 2000s, “That period of late 90s, early 2000s game design has peaked as far as gaming goes without having the payout forcing that a lot of new games have,” Hunter said.
Hunter plans to study business when he goes to college and he will use that experience with game design.
“Using this business to start will help me understand how to run a business but low risk because there is no investment, there is no one else, it’s just me and it will help me in the future for my business purposes,” Hunter said.
Hunter hopes to inspire his peers by starting his own business, “starting this business, it will help my generation because it will show a role model of someone his age and that it is possible to start a business. You can do it,” said said Hunter.
