Description

Mu and Heyo is an independent games studio based in Melbourne, Australia, made up of Ian MacLarty and Jon Kerney.

History

Formation

Mu and Heyo was formed in late 2009 over a beer at a pub in the city of Melbourne, Australia. United by their common interest in games and inspired by the self-publishing revolution taking place at the time, Ian and Jon decided to join forces to create their own games in their spare time. Since then they've released 3 games for iOS (including Office Chaos, which reached #3 in free games in Australia) and are soon to publish their latest game, Boson X.

Ian MacLarty

A software engineer by day, Ian programs Mu and Heyo games by night. He also enjoys creating artwork, music and sound effects. Ian moved to Australia from South Africa in 2004, and liked it so much, he decided to stay. Ian is a fan of the board game Go, spaghetti westerns, and rides a Vanmoof No. 5 bicycle.

Jon Kerney

Jon has a background in 2D animation, art, and interactive design. With interest in developing game concepts and thinking about gameplay mechanics, Jon recently took a break from several years in the advertising industry to focus on developing new prototypes. Jon focuses on the front-end styling of Mu and Heyo Games. He enjoys old Casio LCD games, kung fu films, and rides a Giant CRX 4 bicycle.
