Welcome to Ask An Indie where we interview local independent game developers to learn how they make, do and create.
What inspired you to start making games?
At age 6, my cousin introduced me to D&D. I barely understood what was going on, but I was hooked for life. Simultaneously, the NES craze had just started up. Add to this the fact that my family was into board games, and I was at the center of this perfect little maelstrom. As I learned reading, writing, and math at school, games were just a natural extension of the process.
I remember, circa third or fourth grade, that students were tasked with bringing in material to read for class. Other kids were bringing in Goosbumps and Highlights magazines. I was bringing in the Axis & Allies rulebook, Nintendo Power, and Mentzer D&D manuals (the red box!)
