Wheelman was a game and this site is being restored to commemorate it.
Previously this site was about an action-adventure game which was developed by Tigon Studios for Xbox 360, PlayStation and Microsoft Windows called ‘Wheelman’.
The site was however abandoned after being in operation for a while since the game was released but after purchasing the dropped domain in an auction, I decided to re-purpose the site by adding more content and information about PC and mobile gaming all which happens to fall on a hobby that really interests me and many other video games’ fans.
Wheelman is starred by Vin Diesel (Milo Burik in wheelman), who is also a popular actor of the Fast and the Furious movie sequels and just like it the missions of Fast and Furious movies are driving-oriented so was the gameplay of this video game.
The game was modeled in Barcelona and has a unique plot whereby Milo is an undercover agent who works with a gang who plans a major heist in Barcelona and Milo has to stop the heist from happening.
More information about the game can be found here.
Below are some posts about gaming that I have recently published and you can access them by clicking through various categories. I will be adding more interesting and updated content in the future, so don’t fail to visit the site again.
I have always been a gamer ever since I can remember. Perhaps this stems from the fact that I was a loner most of my childhood, and I could never get anyone to be my friend, I found out later in life that I suffered with social anxiety disorder. I found solace in playing video games and with time, I got excellent, and I would beat anyone that I played against. I would complete levels n record time and the older I got, the better I got at any game that was presented in front of me. By the time I got to middle school, I knew the direction that my life was taking, and that would be developing games.
As time passed by and the better I got at playing games, I made a couple of friends that got to encourage really me to take gaming seriously and maybe someday I would make my own game. I remember once getting a wedge from a bully that I had beaten at the game arcade. It was not a bad experience but imagine meeting the girl you have been crushing on your whole life while trying to undo the wedge that I had gotten.
It was not just embarrassing, but it set me on a path of loneliness once again because instead of my friends’ helping me, they too stood there and laughed. Of course, I laughed too; it was the first time I was getting noticed by my crush and even though it wasn’t the best of first impressions, I wouldn’t say that it was my worst either.
High school was no different for me but at least I got a friend in one of the teachers. She would play video games with me in the computer room, and I got even better. She encouraged me to take on the world, and I loved her for it. She wasn’t just a teacher to me; she was like my best friend and the big sister that I had never had. We would play video games, and she would tell me about how she wanted to change the world, and I promised her that someday I’d live the dreams she so wanted me to. What I never knew and she never disclosed was the fact that she had DCIS breast cancer. So, when she finally succumbed to it, that was one of the most devastating days of my life. I couldn’t do anything for days because she had left this gap in my life that I don’t think anyone would ever feel.
After high school, I started working on my first game, and as soon as I was through with college, it paid off. Wheelman was the name of the game, and it is an incredible game if you ask me. I developed it because of the fact that this is the genre of games that the teacher in high school liked playing. In some way, I would say that it is a tribute to her, and I can’t be prouder to honor her memory in this game.
I ventured into mobile game development because I there are a lot of people out there that do not have the time as I did to play games every time so mobile phones can be that link. Anyone has one these days and by developing a game that can be played on this platform, it also made my teachers dream come true of someday changing the world for the better.
I never told you that in high school, I became huge because I would sit around all day playing video games and that teacher encouraged me to start exercising. I would get out in the evening and take a jog, and that is how my reducing fat regimen started. In a way, she also changed my life as I was becoming overweight and it was taking a toll on me. She also showed me a diet that I could try and in no time I was in the best shape that I had ever been in. That crush of mine that saw me getting a wedge is now my fiancé, and we will tie the knot soon. I think I have gotten to live most of my dreams as well as help out other people thanks to this game I developed, Wheelman.
