Aaron Conners

Developer Biography

Aaron Conners was formerly an employee of Access Software, Inc. and worked on many installments in the Links franchise. He is best known however for his cooperation with Chris Jones on three adventure games in the Tex Murphy detective series: Under a Killing Moon, The Pandora Directive and Tex Murphy: Overseer. After hashing out the story concepts and the game design together, Aaron would write the script while Chris handled production.

The partnership continued for several years after Microsoft acquired the company in 1999 through a number of high profile (but ultimately unreleased) projects, including The Black Pearl, with Mark Hamill, and an action/adventure title based on the world of Steven Spielberg's A.I. Plans to develop another Tex Murphy game never materialized and Chris left the videogame business in 2004.

Aaron became Story Director for Indie Built (a subsidiary of Take Two), and his story for the Xbox snowboarding game Amped 3 was nominated for multiple GameSpot awards. Aaron then went on to become a Creative Director at Ubisoft Montreal.

In late 2007 he teamed up with Chris Jones again to develop the psychological thriller Three Cards to Midnight at his new company Big Finish, Inc.

In 2008, he also started his own consulting/design/writing business, WordPlay LLC, with clients such as Ubisoft and Electronic Arts.
