As a child, Javier loved movies such as Forbidden Planet (1956), Enemy Mine (1985), Explorers (1985), War Games (1983), Trancers (1984), Damnation Alley (1977) and everything the Hammer production company released to Latin America. TV series, such as The Outer Limits and the Twilight Zone, were also available in Spanish. He devoured most written by Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Arthur Conan Doly, Edgar Allan Poe, Charles Dickens, and Howard Phillip Lovecraft, along with healthy doses of Marvel and DC Comic Books almost daily.
Atari and Nintendo were a big part of Javier’s informal education, which paved the way for him to become a video game creator. In December 2011 Javier coded and published “CYPHER: Cyberpunk Text Adventure” along with his brother.
The specialized press and the audience fell in love with the game right away. Gamezebo, founded by Joel Brodie, the former head of business development at Yahoo! Games, praised the game by saying [CYPHER’s] well-crafted atmosphere will have you typing like a madman in no time. Gaming Enthusiast named CYPHER one of the 30 Best Text-Adventures/Interactive-Fiction Games Over 5 Decades while Penny Arcade referred to it as a sexy, violent, neo-noir adventure told through text, clever puzzles, and beautiful art.
Besides running The Cabrera Brothers Company, Javier is a writer and editor for the Free Bundle Newsletter Magazine, a Sci-Fi & Fantasy Magazine with over 16,000 monthly Sci-Fi enthusiasts worldwide.
