Computer science students Richard Gyer and John Buckenmeyer created their company, Minus 40 Games, to develop, market, and sell the video games they create. Their first game, Operation: Fire Rescue, was designed in a game design class at Lawrence Tech. In their Quest project, Richard and John took the design and developed it into a fully working video game. They hope to release the game for PCs and the Xbox 360 home gaming console.


"Ever since I decided to become a game developer, it has been my dream to start my own game development company. Quest helped make my dream a reality. The program provided me with the resources and guidance to start my own business, something I thought would take years to come true."
- Richard Gyer, BS in Computer Science, 2010
