Javier Cabrera is a novelist, short story writer, essayist and screenwriter, was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. 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 series such as The Outer Limits and the Twilight Zone.
He devoured books of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, most written by Robert Louis Stevenson and Howard Phillip Lovecraft along with healthy doses of Marvel and DC Comic Books almost daily.
Atari and Nintendo were a big part of his informal education, which paved the way for him to become a video game creator. In December 2011, Javier coded and published his own video game with his brother, CYPHER: Cyberpunk Text Adventure.
Gamezebo 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 game company, Javier is the Editor-in-Chief of the Online Science Fiction and Fantasy Magazine The Free Bundle for over 16,000 monthly readers.
