About Me

My name is Mohammed Al-Rashid (I will probably be changing it soon for personal reasons) and I am a 19 year old game developer. I first got into coding when I was 14, while playing Minecraft. I started by learning Java and ended up making two rather well know mods under the cringe-inducing username "LazerMan47", which were the Weapons+ mod and Sword Art Online HUD mod. At 16, I was introduced to Virtual Reality by the hit anime "Sword Art Online" and I fell in love with the concept. Virtual Reality is by definition an alternate reality that exists in a virtual space, a reality where anything is possible. I started researching and found out about modern day VR like the Oculus Rift and was extremely impressed and excited, so much so that I decided to buy a DK2. Shortly after I reclieved it, I learned Unity and began developing small demos. From then to now, I have been developing tech demos and VR experiences. I am dedicated to the advancement and popularization of Virtual Reality, and I look forward to creating new worlds for people to experience. Outside of Virtual Reality and computer development, I enjoy art and pop culture entertainment. I 3D model and 3D print objects and own a modded RoBo3D R1+ with a dual extruder. I draw as well, although I'm not all that good at it. I am also a very big anime fan, and I go to conventions and cosplay. You can find more of the nerdy side of me on my personal media sites.

About Crymson Studios

Crymson Studios is the title that I release my games under. Crymson Studios mainly focuses on Virtual Reality creations, but may stray into other territories. As of now, my creations will be only for the Oculus Rift, which you can buy here, but will most likely expand to platforms such as the Gear VR and the HTC Vive. I do take ideas and suggestions, so feel free to email me about that.

Platforms Owned

Oculus Rift DK2 Owned
Oculus Rift CV1 & Touch Owned
Gear VR Owned
HTC Vive Planned


I also work as a freelancer-type developer, and I am open to developing websites and games for a highly negotiable price. If you would like me to design a website, custom Unity asset/script, or a general Java/C++ application, email me and we can negotiate prices. Please note that in the case of web design, you will still have to pay for your own domain and host seperatly, I only write code. I also will include helpful comments in my code at no extra charge if you want, as I fully support people learning the programming language I am writing in for their projects. If you would like to get an estimate, email me at contact@crymsonstudios.com and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. I have not done any projects for others, but for a reference, I coded this website in Dreamweaver using HTML and CSS and some JavaScript. The parallax scrolling is not written by me.
