About Us

Mirthwerx is the realization of a dream.  A dream to make games.  It’s all about the Art; crafting something unique and engaging, something for people to enjoy.  We all have dreams.  Maybe your dream is to write a book, to be a musician, to live in a particular country, to learn a language.

Dreams cost us something, we must sacrifice for them.
Dreams motivate us, to go where we wouldn’t have gone before.
Dreams test us, to see what stuff we are really made of.
Dreams stretch us, to be someone better than we are.

The only way for a dream to truly end is to stop trying.

The Team

Thomas Henshell

Thomas grew up in Canada and started programming at 6 on a TSR-80.  No, he wasn’t very good at it then, but he likes to think he’s gotten better over the years.  Thomas is a self taught programmer who worked in business software for 15 years in predominately C++ and C#.  The last 8 years were in mobile.  But secretly, at night, when no one was watching, Thomas was building bits of game engines, add ons to games (like the SimCity 4 Auto Saver for instance).  Thomas enjoys all types of games: Sports, FPS, Simulators, RPGs, Strategy, Business Management, Puzzle, Action, MMO, be they Mainstream or Indie, whether on Mobile, Console, or PC.  He also enjoys table top gaming, such as Euro board games, Magic the Gathering, Space Hulk, Warhammer Fantasy, Flames of War, and GMing D&D campaigns.  Thomas is annoying to work with because every day he is bursting with new ideas that supersede the ones he had yesterday.
