Benjamin Ha, CEO

I started coding because my parents didn't let me play video games and I had to learn how to build them myself. I grew up being inspired by a lot of web based games that were popular on websites such as addictinggames.com and aromorgames.com. This is an era that has now passed. Now, I am working on Muse so we can reimagine websites as games to make the internet fun once again. YC Badge: 0x8B873805b19d60E16A53cD30992fEf01c007a746
