The Quiet Tinkerer Who Makes Games Beautiful Finally Gets His Due
Great profile on Tim Sweeney from Stephen Totilo. Again, part of my childhood gaming, especially ZZT, which was a brilliant editor and one of the first play/create tools I messed around with. Striking to see how much impact the shareware creators of my youth - Carmack, Sweeney, and all the Apogee/id/Epic crews - have gone on to have in the modern industry. Also: striking to be reminded how much of those early PC gaming days were about borderline geniuses writing terrifying graphics engines.
