Straight from the folks at MIT:

Award-studded “game god”* Steve Meretzky will speak on Monday (Oct 6) at 6pm in the Stata Center, 32-141.

Steve Meretzky’s first job in computer gaming was at the Cambridge company Infocom, which was the leading interactive fiction developer. Meretzky became the company’s most prolific author, writing Planetfall, A Mind Forever Voyaging, and Leather Goddesses of Phobos and co-authoring The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy with Douglas Adams.

Meretzky has since worked at Legend Entertainment, Boffo Games (which he co-founded), and WorldWinner. He is currently at Blue Fang Games.

Meretzky won the 2008 Game Design Challenge at GDC and recently starred in the MC Frontalot video “It Is Pitch Dark.”

Meretzky will speak, have a public conversation with Purple Blurb host Nick Montfort, and then take questions from the audience. The event is free and open to the pubic. To learn more about the Purple Blurb series of which this talk is a part, see this page.
