Mickey Treadwell started his career in film and television, working post-production roles on nature documentaries for the better part of 6 years. In 2018 Mickey re-trained in computer science with the goal of working in the game sector. He took advantage of the course’s full-year software development paper to author an RPG in C, while dabbling in Unity and Unreal on the side. In 2020 Mickey attended the Aotearoa game jam with a team of developers who would go on to form Atawhai Interactive – a new tiny studio based in Ōtepoti. He is currently working full-time programming “Toroa”, a narrative adventure about the flight of the albatross.
