Developer Biography

Marc LeBlanc is a long-time veteran of the game industry, most notably for his work on the Ultima Underworld games, but also for his involvement with the acclaimed Looking Glass series Thief and System Shock.

Later he joined Visual Concepts where he contributed technology to their line of SEGA sports titles and also helped develop original game concepts. In collaboration with Andrew Leker, he developed Oasis, the 2004 Independent Games Festival Game of the Year in the web/downloadable category at Mind Control Software, LLC. With the company he worked on commercial titles such as Field Commander, but also more casual games such as Arrrrrr!

Marc attended MIT, where he was awarded a Master's in Computer Science, and the rank of Master Assassin. He has lectured on game design at conferences and universities, and ran a two-day workshop at the Game Developers Conference on game tuning.
