Developer Biography

Silas was the programmer on Castle Wolfenstein (1981), the game that would later inspire Wolfenstein 3D, but also involved with Beyond Castle Wolfenstein, Gunship, Silent Service and Red Storm Rising. He worked at Muse Software and MicroProse Software, Inc. Around 1993 he was employed by Virgin Games and worked on games like Robin Hood for the SNES. He was married with Kari Ann Owen and passed away on 26th February 2004, following a long-term fight against kidney disease.

He was a rather unusual man. To quote Muse Software's founder Ed Zaron:

Silas is one of a kind. I'll never forget first meeting him. Silas is a big guy, maybe 6'8" and say 320lbs. Here's the picture, he was walking down mainstreet in downtown Baltimore wear a huge, sagging sports coat. He had a car battery (yes, car battery!) in one pocket, a CB radio in the other pocket and a whip antenna stuck down the back of his jacket. He was occasionally talking on the CB as he held two magazines open in one hand. One of Silas's favorite things was to read two mags simultaneously, kinda one inside the other, flipping back and forth.
