Development for SoftWeir’s first project, Engine 001(001 Game Creator), started back in the year 2001. At first only a passion project, in 2003 that changed into a full fledged engine with simple functionality. Year after year, 001 Game Creator grew into a blossoming game engine. Starting with one lead coder, Mike Weir(founder), he pushed to improve his own ability and expand the feature set of 001 Game Creator. After contracting with Digital Extremes for a period after College, SoftWeir itself grew into a small team and continued to expand through the years.
