Developer Biography

Corey started out on chess and other board games as a child, then found Dungeons & Dragons in the mid-70’s. He met his wife, Lori Ann Cole, while running one of his D&D games (The Tower of Indomitable Circumstance, published by Judges Guild) at a convention in San Francisco.

A science fiction fan friend introduced the Coles to Ken Williams in 1988. Corey's first task at Sierra On-Line was to convert their SCI game engine to the Atari ST. The following year, the Coles began developing the Hero’s Quest series. Due to trademark issues, the name was changed to Quest for Glory for the second game released in 1990 and the rest of the series.

Corey is a programmer and technical game designer. He also wrote some of the descriptions (notably many bad puns) for the Quest for Glory games. He was the main game designer for Castle of Dr. Brain with just a little help from Lori.

After Sierra closed its Yosemite Entertainment office in 1999, Corey moved into online gaming. His online games include: Passport2Bridge (1996), Explorati (2001), and JetSetPoker.com (2003).

He is currently (Fall 2008) working with Lori on www.TheSchoolForHeroes.com, an online “school” with fantasy elements. Corey writes a blog for the site (www.TheSchoolForHeroes/questlog) on topics related to gaming, heroism, and life success.
