Matt’s fascination with games started at an early age when a family friend entrusted him with their new Commodore Vic-20 while they went away on holiday. It has continued ever since through the years over a wide range of systems. Growing up on the 8-bits and 16-bits and then moving on to a 286 as his first PC, he has experienced many gaming classics from the UK gaming scene. Gaming was put on hold in the 1990s to make way for university where Matt studied Japanese.
Matt now lives in Japan where he works as a translator. He once again games in his spare time. Even in the home market of console gaming, he prefers to play on the PC and can often be heard lamenting over the state of PC gaming in Japan. Other pastimes include trawling second hand stores for cheap console games, watching Ice Road Truckers, and enjoying time with his children. He is also slowly working on developing his own game.
