Steve Brown

Staff Bio
Avatar stepurhan

Steve is an accountant by day and an amateur poet by night (with some crossover. Accountancy based poetry is the next big thing) He also has a well-deserved reputation for wearing loud shirts.

He has been playing adventures since the days when the Commodore 64 was cutting edge technology. Whilst he hasn’t written a game himself he helped out on Five Magical AmuletsFive Lethal Demons, Frasse and the Peas of Kejick, Princess Marian X, Chivalry is Not Dead, Dirty Split and this site’s very own Christmas Quest 3. He has a walk-on (well standing around) part in Des Rêves Élastiques Avec Mille Insectes Nommés Georges. He hopes to continue helping to bring quality games to the adventuring public in the future. He also gets a passing mention in the credits of [game=356]Darkness Within : In Pursuit of Loath Nolder[/game].

All of the following facts about Steve are true (for a limited value of truth)

[list]He has two poems published internationally.

One of his shirts won an award voted for internationally.

His name once appeared on the cover disc of a leading Czech gaming magazine.[/list]

As Freeware Coordinator for the site, Steve constantly scours the net for new free games to bring to the attention of the gaming public.
