I'm Jon Hellebuyck and Mode 13 is my Minnesota-based mobile studio. I've been at this technology thing for a long while now, going back to the pre-PC days (there was a teletype, I'm not kidding). It started with BASIC and writing text adventures on my TI-99, flirting with Apple IIs along the way. Later came C, college, databases, business computing, and web work.

And then there were the games. First I dabbled with Flash, then with DirectX, then with OpenGL and the iPhone. Fun fact: Psychopomp, my first iPhone game, started out as a Flash game. There's a circle-of-life joke in there somewhere.

Welcome. I hope you enjoy the site.
