Bio - John Gillanders (Director)
John grew up with a passion and curiosity about computers, video games and how they work. His family were early adopters of computers, which fuelled his fascination with technology for decades to come.
"Fun, enjoyment, play and games are a part of who we are as human beings. Technology is a rich part of modern interactive play, with video games being a hugely popular and rapidly-growing industry. I have always wanted to create video games and share with others the same fascination and joy I have felt ever since I was a little boy, playing games with my family on our Commodore 64 back in the 1980s. Technaturally Games has grown out of that passion." - John Gillanders
In his personal life, he is a husband, father, deep thinker and is dedicated to making the world a better place. He is involved in various community-building activities and groups, such as:
