Mac Gaming Gods: Brian Greenstone
1:28 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

We continue our series on Gaming Gods with a profile of Brian Greenstone, developer of original Mac games and the closest thing the Mac world has to a household name. Brianís journey into the world of Mac gaming began in 1981 when he was visiting a cousin who had a TSR-80, and continues with the development of Otto Matic. Here's a sample from the feature:

Nanosaur, Bugdom, Cro-Mag Rally, Otto Matic. Perhaps you have heard of those games? You can bet that the legions of iMac and iBook users out there have become familiar with Pangea Software and their quality games by now. As the CEO, lead programmer, tech support guy and janitor, Brian Greenstone and his small team of artists and musicians have made a name for themselves developing original, Mac-only games. In the Mac gaming industry, original development has gradually been swept aside in favor of ports of popular PC games. Brianís innovation and focus on unadulterated gameplay has proven to be very successful despite this trend.
