About Me

I am Patrick Spencer, a 30 something living with my elderly parents in the northern region of Canada. I have to stay home to watch over my elderly parents. We live on the city border of Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory of Canada (beside Alaska).

My mother is a 70 something Filipina; she doesn’t drive, but is a fantastic cook. My father’s 80 something; he has had seven hip surgeries and three heart attacks. Living out in the country side can be hard. I spend my summers doing yard work, cutting fallen trees, shoveling gravel, etc. I hope to move my parents into town some day.

The Yukon is not a place for technology, and thus I don’t have any employment opportunities. My background is in Information Technology, and I specialize in Web Development and Interactive Media for the Web. The Yukon does not have any computer stores and I have to order all my computer parts and equipment. But thanks to slowly improving Internet services, I am able to bring my world home. My mission is to make a modest living creating video games.


Location

Yukon Territory of Canada, the winters are cold, the summer’s are hot, the air is dry, and the land is vast. I live along the city limits south of Whitehorse in the countryside. Whitehorse is the capital of the Yukon with a previous population of about 22,000. The population of the Yukon was approximately 32,000 in 2007. Today (2019) the total population has jumped to approximately 55,000, now Whitehorse in over populated.

The Yukon is best known for the TV show Gold Rush and our aurora borealis. The Yukon is also known for the worlds largest wind vane and the worlds smallest desert. Dog sled racing was also popular.

The affects of climate change has greatly changed the north. We are slowly losing our winters. The air is no longer as dry, and there is a noticeable lost of water. It has been said that Canada is warming twice as much as the rest of the world and it shows.


Tigarus

Tigarus comes from my astrology signs; the Taurus and the Tiger combined into Tigarus. Fierce as a Tiger, strong as a bull, the Tigarus never gives up. Formally known as Coola Studios, Tigarus is primarily a self brand and a solo independent production studio. Tigarus has been a registered business of Canadian since September 2010.

November 29, 2003, at the age of 17 I was the first Yukonite to be awarded the Daily Feature award by Newgrounds.com for the animated short Wormstrek Rhapsody. Wormstrek received the honor of front page of Newgrounds in December. Wormstrek was the first Yukon made animated short to reach over 250,000 views online.

2011, I was disqualified from the animation contest “Teletoon At Night Pilot Project” hosted by the Canadian broadcasting station Teletoon. Teletoon claimed the never before seen original animated short Gigi’s Bad Day was stolen. This was latter disputed and changed to violating a non-existing contest rule dubbed “no self promotion.”


Last Word

This is a labor of love, it’s a full time job for me and I don’t get anything in return. I just want to do something even if nobody else cares. I care, because I made this.
