Warren Spector’s updated his blog with news that the legendary designer’s now been in the games industry for 25 years. Snip:
I realized that this month, September, was my 25th anniversary in the game business. Yow!
I remember vividly walking into Steve Jackson’s house for my interview back in September of 1983. (Heck, I remember exactly what I was wearing: a khaki shirt, green military-style pants, a green vest and some stupid brown suede-covered athletic shoes — Italian, which at the time I guess signified cool, to me, even if they did hurt like the dickens.) Anyway, I remember marching up to Steve’s house for an interview that felt like a fun conversation with a gaming buddy, and I remember him offering me a minimum wage job as an Assistant Editor, and I remember leaving feeling like the happiest guy on Earth.
Congratulations, Warren. Here’s to another 25.
