    Jordi Grau Davis (Jooky)

    Jordi Grau Davis (that's me) studied for many years, earning Bachelor degrees in Archaeology and Architecture from the University of California Berkeley and a Master's degree in Architecture from Harvard University, only to leave it all behind for video games in 1994.

    I founded two game graphics companies, Vector Graphics and Future Primitive and have been in the game industry for 17 years. Through these companies I fulfilled contracts with Sony, Sega, Mindscape, Microprose, Virgin Interactive, Raven Soft, Hewlett Packard, Worlds Inc. and many other clients culminating with a publishing deal with Electronic Arts with only a four person team.

    As Future Primitive was disbanded, I continued working as both an artist and a programmer for several small independent projects for companies including Autodesk and Hurricane Electric, the latest being an online world Roma Victor which was released to the public in July of 2006.

    I founded Notorious Games LLC in 2007 with the intention of creating a unique virtual game world, the game I’ve been wanting to play since I first sat at a computer, Xsyon.
