Don Wilkins programmed his first game in 1980 on a print terminal connected to a remote university mainframe. The game was a text based space adventure similar to ADVENT ( otherwise known as Collosal Cave Adventure ). Since then he's had the honor to work with some of the industry's finest at companies like Sir-Tech Software, Sierra Entertainment, 3DO and smaller development studios on games like Wizardry and Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura, among others.
Don founded Maverick Games in 2016 on the principle that small development teams can create exceptional entertainment experiences.
