Peter Schauss (actually Peter Schauß, the German character ß is read as 'ss' in English), who is also known under his nickname DarkCorner (or DC for short) is the head of Unreal Software, a small and independent game- and software developer. He uses this name to publish his hobby projects.
He developed his first 3D-game, Stranded I, in the tender age of 15 years and published the "gold" version 184.108.40.206 of it on May 12, 2003. More games followed later, such as Counter-Strike 2D, Minigolf Madness and Stranded II (which he won an Alienware PC with). The most recent project is Carnage Contest.
- DC studied Informatics at the university in Koblenz.
- He was born on September 20, 1987.
- DC is left-handed.
- From July 2007 to March 2008 he served his time in the basic military service in Gerolstein.
The nickname DarkCorner resulted from his behaviour of camping in first-person shooters, hiding in dark corners where he was hard to spot for enemies while he could kill them easily, playing e.g. as a sniper. As he doesn't do such things any more he also doesn't want to be addressed as DarkCorner any more but rather as DC.
