Developer Biography

In 1978, at age 11, Scott saw a Radio Shack salesman give a demonstration of a TRS-80 and fell in love with programming. His father bought him a Sinclair ZX80 in 1980 and so began many afternoons typing BASIC programs in from magazines. Later in high school, Scott would write games for himself and his friends on an Atari 400. Outgrowing AtariBASIC, he ventured into assembly language programming.

After school, from 1986 to 1990, Scott worked as a contractor, coding on several games including Byteman, Space War, Dino Wars, and Bill n Ted's Excellent Adventure. Apart from writing the Majesty installer in 1998, Scott has not had much to do with the video game industry, but is still around coding on webapps and is one of the main maintainers of the open source Marlin 3D printer firmware.
