Developer Biography

From Centurion: "Kellyn Beck is the award-winning designer and project director of Defender of the Crown, S.D.I., and Rocket Ranger. In his work as a computer game designer, Kellyn uses his extensive experience in television, film, and theatre to better realize the potential of interactive entertainment. He begins each project with a year of research and design work, in which he sketches elaborate storyboards of each scene that will appear in the game. His preparation for Centurion included a research trip to Rome, and a few "necessary" side trips to Roman colonies like Germania (Germany), Gaul (France), and Alpes (Switzerland). The inspiration for the game came from too many hours spent watching the movies Ben Hur and Spartacus." (thanks to MarkF)
