Born in former CSSR in the 70ies, Ivan Ertlov grew up as Johann Ertl in Lower Austria. During grammar school, he managed to sell his first games (mostly adventures for C64) to DiscMags. In the mid-90ies, Ivan Ertlov was among the best render Artists in Austria with his shows "Welcome to the Cyberspace" and "Atomic City" being shown at the Knight Games events with hundreds of thousands of visitors. As travellign journalist, Ivan created the docs "Rockin USA" and "Adventure Down under". After several years of studying, DJ-ing and journalism, with an obscure degree earned, Ivan became a teacher in Lower Austria. He managed to survive the kids and pupils for five months before going back into media business as Online Writer for the JoWooD AG, developer and publisher of the "Giant" and publisher of Gothic. With his own label "Homegrown Games" Ivan created two independent developed games being shipped worldwide before quitting JoWooD in 2009 and focussing on Indie Game making alone.

Description

As you know, I have to work for a living and of course for getting the bills paid for my Indie games. Luckily there are sometimes projects that are both interesting and fair-payed. This here is from "Bahngigant" aka "Train Giant" which will be released soon worldwide. Looks familiar? It should! It`s the legendary A-Train 9 which was so far only available in Japan and China, now UIG is putting out an International Version. Right now I`m creating a "Greece" Scenario where you have to save the shaken country from bankruptcy. Won`t be easy for the player ;)
