November 11, 2004: Welcome, Chris!

Good news for Jeff Johannigman was bad news for us: he was here half-time while searching for a full-time position, and an amazingly good one came amazingly fast. He's now at Dell. Johann may not have been here long, but he gave us a great kick-start to our efforts, and will still be giving us advice to which we'll definitely listen.

The good news for us: Johann's last act was to bring us a great replacement. Chris Maka will be taking over where Jeff left off . . . our full-time Executive Producer, leading our digital game development efforts. Chris has six years' experience as an IT project manager and comes to us from NCsoft, where he worked on City of Heroes, Guild Wars, Lineage, Lineage II, Richard Garriott’s Tabula Rasa, and Auto Assault.

Chris got hooked on gaming back in 1980 when he discovered both Dungeons and Dragons and the Atari 2600, and claims to have played “nearly everything” since then. His first Steve Jackson Games love was Car Wars in the small, black plastic box circa 1983. Chris will be around for the long haul (“Coming here was the offer I couldn’t refuse!”). He can be reached at cmaka@sjgames.com.
