Gaming has been an obsession since I was old enough to gum the controller of an Atari 2600, and, as tragic as it sounds, many of my fondest childhood memories involve uncovering lost Street Fighter II machines in dilapidated seaside arcades. It’s a thrill that I still feel today, and it’s amazing to work creatively in the industry I love. My ideal game would be an occult turn-based beat ’em up set in feudal Japan, starring a Warhammer dwarf, M.R. James, and Nico from Broken Sword. There would also be dry martinis, catapults, and romance.
