I've been designing videogames for 18 years, including the following titles:HλLF-LIFE
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
One of my true passions, though, is boardgaming and I hope to design one myself, at some point.
The hobby of boardgaming has taken me from roleplaying in the original white-box Dungeons & Dragons
, through the rigors of Advanced Squad Leader
, all the old skool SPI and Avalon Hill wargames, on to Warhammer 40k
and ccgs, and finally on to the Euro-style Designer games, and I still play them all.
My current favorite diversions are wargames, mostly. I'm playing through many of Kevin Zucker's designs, several games developed or designed by Adam Starkweather, the GCACW
series, and I'm looking forward to Conflict of Heroes
. I'm also enjoying Dark Heresy
RPG, and any Martin Wallace title (my favorite designer).
I was thrilled to be offered a chance to write a chapter for James Lowder's book, Family Games: The 100 Best
, in which I discuss the game Thebes
I've been honored to serve as a playtester on the following titles:Sekigahara: The Unification of JapanFields of FireOmega Centauri
I have geared my whole life toward the pursuit of gaming and that will never change.
