Staff Bio

Having grown up with the impression that there were two kinds of computer games - the boring kind that revolve around cards or dice, and the hyperactive kind that revolve around shooting at everything that moves - I came into contact with adventure games relatively late in life. Ever since my husband introduced me to The Secret of Monkey Island, I haven’t been able to stop playing them. Story-driven RPG’s and turnbased strategy games are a nice diversion though.
