Altered Beast altered my reality.
In my early years, I played games like Legend of Zelda, Kid Chameleon and Ecco the Dolphin whenever the chance was there. Having "those parents," who at the time thought video games were a waste and brain rotting nonsense, I hadn't had a system for many years to come...but the game that really gained my interest at such a young age was Altered Beast. Having no patience to sit around and wait for my parents to bowl on their group bowling nights, I got sucked into the wonderful arcades that were at my disposal. This game was easily the coolest thing I had played in the late 80's kicking off two of my long lasting obsessions: Video Games and Werewolves.
Later, once I received a Nintendo Entertainment system of my own, my library soon filled with such games as Marble Madness, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ninja Gaiden, Shinobi, Nintendo Ice Hockey, Off-Road, and many...many more.
Now, almost 20 years later I am persuing the dream of creating my own game to inspire the youth of today. At 32 years of age, I have had a bit of late start in this industry, but having served in the USMC, I feel I have the discipline and drive to stand out among my competitors.
