About Yukie

As the story evolves and develops, Yukie: A Japanese Winter Fairy Tale plays out in as a vengeful winter tale. Bringing together family ties and revenge, this winter-world will bring you to the edge of good, evil and all in between.

Follow the tale of a young man, Yukiji, who is the final avenger of this world. He seeks vengeance on the demon Yukie, who has subjected the world to an Eternal Winter.
Proceed in a movie-like fashion as the journey to the snowy mountains to slay Yukie takes many twists and turns. As the story blurs between vengeance and seduction, Yukiji’s purpose and desires are called into question as he wields his sword.

What makes Yukie stand out from other narrative-based games is how well the art, musical score and writing fit together, creating a captivating atmosphere of Yukie’s cursed yet beautiful winterland.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
