SYSK: Young entrepreneur Ervin Sabic develops new video game

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Ervin Sabic loves video games.

"I remember playing Sega when I was four years old," he said.

At 13 years old, he's already turning his love of gaming into a career by starting his own company, Carnage Productions.

"We're a multi-media company. We can do photo shop, video editing, we can do a bit of programming," said Ervin Sabic.

But Sabic said the company specializes in game design. He's been working on a new game for more than a year.

"It's called Operation Defuse. It's almost complete. I just have some loading screens to finish up and it'll be ready for release," he said.

The soon-to-be eighth grader said a tool kit with another game got him interested in game design.

"Well I used to have this game called Neverwinter Nights, and they had this tool set that came with it. And with the tool set they had all the things they used to develop the game with," said Sabic.

With the help of that tool kit and lots of reading and lots of other research, Sabic taught himself how to create this game. He hopes to continue developing games, and he has high expectations for his future after school.

"Ten years from now, sitting in a CEO chair," he said.
