Studio

Big Moustache Games is a small independent studio, situated in the capital of Bulgaria, Sofia. Making games is what most of us have done, or wanted to do for the better part of their lives. So for us – it’s a mission! A mission to save a dying breed, the true gamer. Because the games could be and should be much more than what they are today. And the true gamer deserves nothing less!

We also wanted to be able to finally take full responsibility of everything we do. If we make mistakes, and we will 100%, we want these to be our own mistakes, not somebody else’s. For that we had to take full control. And we did. Welcome to BMG!

Here’s what we believe in:
- No compromise made is worth the time it takes.
- There’s always something more you can learn.
- Common sense rules!
- Honesty, humbleness, hard work – the true Iron Triangle.

Team

Ivelin G. Ivanov
Creative Director, co-Founder
Ivelin is a veteran of the industry with more than 16 years of experience under his belt, working as Game Designer, Producer, Game Director and Creative Director. He is credited for his work on titles such as Tropico 3 and 4, Sacred 2, X3: Reunion, X Albion Prelude and many more.
Ivo is a big movie buff, his favorite movie – Dark City (Blade Runner coming as a very close second).

Alexander Torofiev
Tech Director & Lead Game Designer, co-Founder
Alex is Electronics Engineer by trade and still has a pet project he works on as an embedded programmer. The games though have always been his “thing”. Alex has several years of experience working as Game Designer and Producer on mobile titles, most notably the hit medieval strategy Seasons of War (iOS, Android).
Alex is also a bestselling author of game books. His latest book topped the national Young Adult charts. His favorite band is Rammstein, his favorite movie – The Thing.

Dimitar Stefanov
Lead Back-end Developer
Dimitar has 10+ years of experience as Team Lead in back-end software development. He always wanted to develop games and when the right opportunity rose on the horizon he jumped the train without any hesitation.
Dimitar plays bass guitar (quite craftily in fact, although he describes himself as a Semi-pro), loves Pink Floyd and the movie Willow. He’s also the second game book author in the team, using the alias Coleen Livingston (just don’t tell anyone, ok?)

Alexander Popov
Lead Front-end Developer
Sasho has 8+ years of experience as Software developer, four mobile and one PC game in his portfolio. He’s also the hardest and the corest gamer of the crew.
Sasho is the second guitar player among us – maybe it’s about time to form a group? He’s also a serious weightlifter and judging by the looks of it he must be quite good at it. Last by not least – he loves everything about Japan. Didn’t see that coming, ha? Neither did we.

Filip Tsonkin
Lead Artist
Filip graduated as Animation Director, but – thank God! – decided that he loves drawing far more than directing. Before joining our jolly bunch, Fil spent several years working in the movie industry as Concept, Storyboard and Matte Painting Artist. He’s credited for his work in Automata, The Legend of Hercules, Conan the Barbarian, Killing Season and Expendables 1 to 3.
Most of all Filip likes to draw strange creatures. He’s inspired by basically everything he sees and loves to craft practically unthinkable combinations based on real living creatures. His favorite movie is Jim Henson’s Labyrinth and you probably saw that coming, now didn’t you?
