Biography edit · view history
Mark Seremet entered the gaming industry while still in college when he and his freinds created the studio Paragon Software in 1985. Seremet and his friends were programming small business applications at the time in the Assembly language, but after switching to making video games full time they began gaining recognition for their work on DOS software. Originally Paragon's games were distributed by EA, but after difficulties with the publishing giant Paragon moved to MicroProse Software for their game distribution. During this time Paragon created many successful games based on Marvel Entertainment licenses such as Spider-Man and The Punisher.
In 1992 Seremet and his associates sold Paragon Software to MicroProse Software and the next year started Take-Two Interactive Software with his partner Ryan Brant and around 20 ex-Paragon employees. In the next five years their company continued to grow, eventually going public in 1997.
Seremet left Take-Two Interactive in 2000 and took a break from gaming industry for a time. He briefly retreated from the entrepreneurial world for two years, using this time to acquire a Masters degree in Christian Ministry and write a Christian-themed book. He then ran a tee-shirt company for a few years. In 2007, Seremet returned to the gaming industry when he and Brant started another game studio, this time named Zoo Games Inc. While they tried developing a variety of games including AAA titles, the studio eventually settled on producing casual games.
