How did we meet him?

Chris and Ash became friends when they met at a community college many years ago. Since then they always kept up with each other’s business and eventually he was invited to join the team as a writer.

His views on writing in modern games

Writing on such a visible and viscerally interactive platform such as gaming is a challenge in blending existing tropes with new experiences. It requires content creators that are willing to expand the horizons of the historically narrow scope of characters, and branching out into topics that are mature and complex. The idea of what a ‘gamer’ is has changed significantly since the days of the NES, and it is our responsibility as writers to recognize and respect that.
