Chad Wagner's Blog


If I think back...I believe I can remember my first video game experience.  Yes, it's coming clear: a dim office, a manilla folder with an 8" floppy disc, an amber monitor and a Wang PC -- and the world of 1979 Tucson, Arizona gave way to the Great Underground Empire of Zork!  That visit to my friend's house forever altered my destiny, changed me it did.  I began learning to program immediately, and launched my lifelong hobby of video game development at the age of 8.

Now I'm a professional Software Engineer at one of the largest companies in the world, and daily applying the principles I have learned through video game development to a wide world of applications I could never have foreseen!

While late at a dim office...reality, again, gives way to new worlds of my own imagining and creation, as I continue to develop games for platforms such as Xbox Live Indie Games, Palm's WebOS, and PC.

Person on the IndieGames sister site suggested that the name should be changed immediately...I don 't really agree, but if it were to be so it should be changed to Resistor. You know, with the whole anti-establishment culture. : r n r nSorry, had to post somewhere

One thing I think is interesting is that when creature designs go completely alien - they all seem the same All tentacles and spines or whatever. That 's probably why you can 't think any game that has done it - they all blend in to weirdness. Other. r n ...
