In 1990 he founded Blue Sky Productions, which was later renamed to LookingGlass, and became a leading US game development studio. Looking Glass developed eighteen titles and generated over $120M in sales. As creative director of the studio, Paul designed and directed the development of such acclaimed titles as Ultima Underworld, Terra Nova, Flight Unlimited, and Thief, which collectively earned over a dozen game-of-the-year awards.
He was also instrumental in pioneering breakthrough gaming technologies, including 3D texture mapping and photorealistic terrain. As the founder and Creative Director of FloodGate Entertainment, Paul oversees all design, development and research efforts of the company.
