Behind Them Sticks: Interview with Seamus Blackley
We dive into the current day. We asked how was gaming when he was young, how he became a developer, when he met Bill Gates, and how he even got his name. There is so much to unpack with Seamus’ life from playing an instrument as a young child to becoming a physicist to working on classic video game titles like Tresspasser and Flight Unlimited.
Seamus has also worked with industry veterans like John Carmack and, like many people, had failures in unlikely moments. Currently, he is an ancient Egyptian baker, believe it or not, but even he talks about that in this episode. Come listen and learn about an industry legend, Seamus Blackley.
