My name is Scott Tongue, and I have two diverse passions that span the spectrum of technology: Equestrian and Game Software. My equestrian journey began at the age of 5 in Texas, where I initially embraced the western riding style. Throughout the years, I became deeply involved in the world of horse riding.
Simultaneously, I developed a strong affinity for creating maps and mods for various arena shooters on the PC. During my time in high school, which was in the early 2000s, I delved into game development by creating 16-bit real-mode MS-DOS games inspired by classic arcade games from the 80s. Using my skills in C++/C programming, I brought these nostalgic experiences to life. At the age of 16, I also demonstrated my technical prowess by successfully completing and passing the CompTIA A+ exam.
In addition to my technological pursuits, I devote myself to the well-being of my horse—a previously neglected Clydesdale/Thoroughbred. When I first encountered him at the stables during my undergraduate studies, he was in poor condition. Together with my trainers, I embarked on a journey to restore his health and vitality. Despite initial doubts surrounding his abilities, I persevered and managed to train him to canter and jump over small cross rails. Witnessing his transformation has been an incredibly rewarding experience.
In summary, my life encompasses the contrasting worlds of equestrianism and game software, allowing me to appreciate the beauty of horse riding while indulging my passion for creating immersive gaming experiences.
