The Indie: Darrel Cusey, Senior Programmer, Lakehome Games.

What inspired you to start making games?

I started making games because I couldn’t pay for them myself. I saved all my chore and birthday money and bought a Commodore 16 when I was 9. I started making clones of games I saw in arcades. The graphics were simple, they ran really slow, but I enjoyed making them and learning programming at the same time. I could also play them for free as much as I wanted.
