Developer Biography

Don Priestley is a programmer who wrote various games in the 1980s.

Priestley had originally been a teacher. He first learned about computing by taking a night class in Pascal.

His first commercial releases came out on the Bug-Byte label. These were followed by several titles from dk'tronics.

When the games industry was moving towards development by teams rather than individuals, Priestley decided that did not suit the way he worked so he returned to teaching.
