Josh Presseisen: My first memory of video games would be my aunt’s Atari, I used to play Combat and Pac-man on it when I’d go to visit her.
It was very exciting back then! I was very into video games. When I was young I had a few computers that my uncle got for me, the Timex Sinclair 1000, which also came with a game programming book. I’d spend hours messing around with the games in the book and trying to make my own. The coolest computer I had for programming games was the TI–994a – it looked like a Delorean!
When the NES was launched, I was really obsessed with Super Mario Brothers, Zelda, and Metroid.
There was a brief time of a few years where I wasn’t doing video game stuff, which was in my band years – I was in a band and touring for a while, then got a job doing graphics stuff. My interest in video games returned after that.
