History

Early History

Mickey DeLorenzo and Dave Trawin met in 1995 at a highschool in NJ. The two of them started a magazine called "Free Refills" in 1995 at the age of 15 that quickly gained in popularity. By their senior year in 1999; 5,000 issues were pressed of issue #5 of Free Refills all paid for by advertisers who wanted to be in the magazine. Mickey and Dave, with dreams of becoming the next Rolling Stone Magazine, both moved to Philadelphia after highschool to attend college. After graduation the two created, Basic Function LLC in 2003. Mickey and Dave were both hired full time by large agencies, Dave in NYC and Mickey in Philly. Basic Function LLC was a company setup to house all of the duo's freelance and sidework. Over the years the two have done numerous web development, design, and development projects. In 2007, Mickey DeLorenzo garnered international attention after his "Wii Sports Experiment" went global when he posted his before/after photos onto his website, NintendoFuse.com. After great personal loses in 2005 then again in 2009, Mickey and Dave decided to move Basic Function into a new direction that would focus soley on personal projects that would interest them oppose to doing client work. In 2010 Basic Function began experimenting with iOS design and development. In 2011 Basic Function launched it's first iOS App, "Today I Learned". "Today I Learned" has since been downloaded over 15,000 times with little to no promotion. In early 2012 Mickey and Dave started talking about doing an iOS game. They recalled an Atari game that they would play as kids, in high school, and college; "Frogs and Flies". In college they would organize "Frog and Flies" tournaments where the champion would win a bag of tator tots. Remembering how addictive and fun the game was Mickey and Dave went about re-imagining the game for iOS. The result after a year and a half is Hungry Lizards.
