IGDA PechaKucha – Brush with Origin Systems

Last week I spoke at the Orlando IGDA Chapter meeting along with others. The theme was “what the game industry means to you”. I thought this was a good opportunity to tell my Origin story, so to speak (that was a joke). The reason I got into the game industry was my fascination with a game called Ultima and the Austin, Texas based company, Origin Systems. I had many brushes with the company and actually fulfilled a dream to actually work in the same building with them. The presentation is in the PechaKucha format, which is 20 slides that auto-advance every 20 seconds. So, the timing is pretty tricky because you don’t have time to go into too much detail.
