Staff Bio
Avatar Melanie68

I came late to the adventure genre.  When everyone else was mesmerized by Lucas Arts, Sierra, Legend, Infocom and other developers’ games, I was… in school.  My first foray into the AG world was Myst (put down that pitchfork!).  I bought it on a whim having no idea what it was and I fell in love.  I played many a first person game after that, moved into third person games and have loved them all ever since.  Does that qualify me to work here?  Well, the management seems to think so. WOO!
