Hi, my name is Thad David. I'm a former Marine Recon Sniper. Over two years ago I came up with the idea for a zombie mobile video game while on a cargo ship securing the coast of Africa from pirates. Today it launches. AMA!
My name is Thad David and I'm a former Recon Marine Sniper during the Iraq War. A couple years ago I was contracted to do security work of the cost of Africa, basically scaring away pirates. While I was living on one of the big cargo ships down there, I came up with an idea for a badass mobile video game.
Right after getting back to the states, I put together a team and started working day and night on it. I have completely bootstrapped the cost and development with a couple friends. Today we launched Zombie Company Crusade on the Apple app store and I couldn’t be more excited. And proud.
Feel free to ask me anything... from my experience being a sniper in the Iraq War to moving away from a military career and starting a video game company and launching a game. I’m down to answer any of your questions and will be on Reddit all day today.
For the Redditors who need proof, I've added a picture of me with my recon buddies and also my paddle that I received when I left my Recon unit.
I did a previous AMA earlier this year and had a lot of fun and got a lot of great ideas. I thought this was a great time to do a follow up. Thanks for your support! This community is truly an inspiration.
