I've been a professional game designer since 1980, with the release of Beyond the Stellar Empire. This is an SF PBM (computer-assisted, human-moderate) that was the first MMCRPG. This game is still running (now called Phoenix) - 34 years later. Other games include Warboid World, Capitol, Crasimoff's World, It's a Crime!, Quest for the Isles II, and Monster Island. Post PBM games worked on include Dragon Ball Z CCG, Fortune Teller, Bakugan Battle Brawlers and Monsuno. I also wrote the news column for SCYRE magazine, created the first US book on the Pokemon card game, began the first mail order company selling Magic: The Gathering cards, and was president and buyer for Adventures Distributing (we were WotC's #1 distributor for the quarter before I left).

I have a couple of iOS apps in the works - Mercator Games. @MercatorGames

EA has failed to patent the name of its upcoming 2D platformer, - perhaps the author shouldn 't write about patents, trademarks or copyright if he doesn 't know what each of these terms mean

Personally, I think Elvenar is Inno 's worst game. Tribal Wars and Grepolis, on the other hand, are excellent...but require incredibly amounts of time to play.
