I was born in Boston, but I grew up in LA. My dad did undergrad and medical school at Harvard. FROM PRETTY MUCH AGE ZERO I WAS DESTINED TO GO THERE. I studied economics there. I then got into a program at the University of Southern California that essentially trains you how to be a film producer, which is hilarious — I don’t know that there is some sort of magic formula.
We’re always excited at the prospect of people being inspired to LEARN MORE ABOUT HISTORY BY PLAYING VIDEO GAMES. It’s a fine line — you don’t want people to think this is a replacement for a history lesson, but more a gateway to the fact that history is not always a boring high school class. It’s full of incredible, exciting people, events, and places. Our goal first and foremost is to entertain, but we’ve found that people feel it’s A LITTLE LESS OF A GUILTY PLEASURE because it has historical context.
