Tyler Yohe

Mentality:

CEO / Writer / Developer

Backstory:

Before destroying Earth with a solar flare, Tyler led a mundane life. The trivial activities of his early life include earning degrees in Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology and Biology from Penn State, and a Master's in Biomedical Materials and Engineering Science from Alfred University. However, his desire for destruction and storytelling was too strong, and in February of 2012 he met a man that could make his dreams of destruction a reality: resulting in the co-founding Broken Crown Games. Now he enjoys working 80+ hour weeks plotting the annihilation of Earth, and the colonization of distant worlds.

Chris Kochel

Mentality:

Webmaster / Systems Admin

Backstory:

Chris never fancied himself a game developer until he met Tyler. He is the proud owner of an Information Technology degree from Juniata College where he also studied business, german and theatre. He enjoys playing games that range from World of Warcraft, to Minecraft, to Browserquest, and feels that there is a lot he can do to make games that appeal to the same types of gamers. While not trying to piece together a crew to escape Titan or learn to craft a better robot on Mars, Chris enjoys running D&D sessions, playing drums for belly dancers, gardening, brewing excellent homebrew, taking apart computers (and sometimes putting them back together) and cooking.
