Aaron Casillas

Building Products and Experiences

Although I've spent more than two decades in the video game industry, my love of games occurred in 1979 years ago (where I stole quarters to play those addictive Arcade games in the local Ice Cream shop. Yes I got caught.). 

In 1980, I won my very first game design award at the Boys Club Regional Game Design competition. My creation was a PVP Pinball Layout with two gutters and four flippers, a head to head design, set over a battling Enterprise and a Klingon War-bird. 

It was raw curiosity and the want to play and experience something different than what was out in the market that drove me that day...and today it's the same fuel.  

I am an entertainer, story teller at heart and ever craftsman of our art form.
