I know of two individuals who have become very successful in their field and I would like to briefly tell you about them.
These two fellows started producing their own video games years ago when they were only 12 year old boys. As teenagers, they continued to work together. They stayed in touch during college, one as a business major, the other in computer technology.
After school, they formed their own company and got right back into video games again. They came out with a title that did reasonabley well. A major Hollywood studio, looking to break into the video game market several years ago, signed these guys to a three game deal.
These two men assembled a first rate team of artists, digital as well as traditional who made the jump to digital, and delivered three titles to Universal Studios over three years. All during production, they stayed right with their artists, working right alongside them through the late nights and weekends, trying to meet their deadlines.
These games were produced for the Sony PlayStation format and went on to sell over 10 million copies worldwide.
These two men, now in their late 20's, developed and produced the "Crash Bandicoot" line of video games, the largest selling title in the history of the Sony PlayStation. This property is a part of the Universal character licensing program and is being considered as a possible animated television series.
The guys did it by starting out small.
