I've wanted to make games since I was a kid gluing shoeboxes together to make a rudimentary dungeon crawler.
My first computer game was a text-adventure written in BASIC on an Amstrad PCW. It had three rooms and a couple of items to pick up. I never added an ending.
My all-time favorite games are Command & Conquer, Age of Empires, Doom II, and Half Life. Surface Tension is Half Life's best chapter (Half Life 2's is Highway 17).
If you buy my games, I think you're a wonderful person and we can be friends.
