Aaron Ramshaw Staff Bio

Aaron started playing adventure games when he was six years old. His parents told him that games could make him smarter, which they did by helping him learn to read and write on classic Sierra parsers. He is still always looking for new and old adventures to play and has even made a non-commercial point-and-click as a hobbyist. He is interested in the psychological benefits of adventure games, and has even done some research looking at certain types of puzzles to see if they improve IQ.

One day Aaron hopes to release a game and use it in his research to show that adventures help us think creatively and logically.
