Some 24 year old furry made Undertale and is a millionaire now.

Toby Fox is his actual name. He's not a part of the furry fandom.

It's too late for me to investigate it but a quick search reveals no obvious way to tell it not to outright display the image in the post. It has course language so obviously that's not good. Line break to stop the in-line image it is then.

What I find most interesting about this is that he was a main programmer at Square and he was not japanese

Yeah. Apparently they were fans of his work, but the only person that knew who he was was the person that hired him. Everyone else talked to him about this "Nashir" programmer who made really good games, and he didn't realize they were talking about him but mispronouncing his name until one of them mentioned one of the games and he went "Nashir? You mean Nasir? That's me." And then everyone apparently "went nuts".


Usually a major game dev celebrity will stay at a company for a long time and tie themselves to it in good and bad times, especially Jaoanese companies. I wonder if Nasir Gebelli just lucked out with the royalties in his contract or if he wanted the royalties specifically because Squaresoft kept him at arm's length for being a foreigner. It seems weird that 7 years of working for Squaresoft would set him up for life.

Those two statements seem contradictory.
