Troy Hoshor Staff Bio

Troy Hoshor is currently a student at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec.  Although he hopes his degree in English & Theatre will land him six figures in the future, he is happily content at this point in time to indulge his other passion in adventure games.

Troy was introduced to adventures at the tender age of two and a half, when his father baited his preternatural gaming instincts by playing King’s Quest IV right in front of him.  Motivated by the earnestness of Rosella, Troy learned how to read just so that he could understand her journey through Tamir.  Ever since, he has been seeking his own Rosella and consuming large quantities of adventure games in her absence.

His favorite adventures include the Quest for Glory and Myst series, as well as as Full Throttle, The Longest Journey and Grim Fandango.
