Shem Nguyen

Shem grew up in New Mexico with way too many siblings to share computers without conflict. Forced to learn how to type at an early age with access to nothing more than QBasic as his word processor, he learned how to program text-based games, websites, and seizure-inducing graphics. Fast-forward to the end of four years of working at Lucasfilm's Industrial Light and Magic and ILMxLAB, he broke off to form Breachgate to focus on his passion for games and the emerging field of virtual reality. When he isn't working on Snowday, you can find him at game jams, on the road biking, or drawing and painting the beautiful San Francisco landscape.

Jeremy Bernstein

Jeremy was raised battling tumble weeds in the remote reaches of rural New Mexico. With a desire to build digital experiences Jeremy went off to school on a meandering path that took him through film, video games, web development, and computer science. Leaving New Mexico he landed in California to help develop and deploy PlayStation’s game streaming service PlayStation Now as a full-stack engineer. Jeremy landed in the bay area after taking a position with Telltale Games building real time collaborative tools integrated with the custom Telltale engine. Itching to get back to game development and excited about the potential of VR Jeremy joined forces with Shem to co-found Breachgate. Together they worked on Snowday, a VR multiplayer snowball fighting game built in the Unreal Engine.
