The story so far
In september 2000 (10 months before getting my first calculator), I started making (decent) comic strips. The saga was known as Sun. It was dice games like Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, not commons comics you read from the first page to the last one. You had to decide where to go and fight monsters. I made two comic strips. In june 2001 I decided to open a website (in french) with some screenshots and it tooks the name of the 2nd adventure, Metranor. The URL is www.multimania.com/metranor. When I got my TI-83+, I lost interest in drawing and I started programming. Omnimaga officially started in the early september 2001. We had to find a logo in a programming course at school. Since Metranor was dead I decided to choose "Omnimaga". Omnimaga doesn't mean anything, but it look like Omni-magic. I thinked about Ultima, the final magic in the Final Fantasy serie. This is when a very small programming started up and I started puting the Omnimaga logo in my calculator games after releasing Illusiat 5 on Visual Basic. 2 months before creating this company logo, I got my TI-83+ and started BASIC programming. My first RPG was really crappy, but near the end of the Illusiat serie, it started to look really awesome. The two staff of the programming team then helped in some projects, such as Illusiat 9 and Mana Force 2. In april 2004, a calculator RPG division of Omnimaga opened world wide as a download and news website. Later in 2004, the first Omnimaga programming team disbanded and I became one of the Epic Programming Studio staff. Then in late 2005, EPS disbanded, to eventually shut down for good. On december 9th 2005, the second Omnimaga programming team started (the one currently active on this website).
