Thank You Adrienne & Andrew

Thank you

I have so much to be thankful for that I rarely publicly single-out individuals or events here on my professional website, preferring instead to thank people personally for the contributions of love and energy they extend my way.

But this deserves a very public recognition from me.

THANK YOU Professor Adrienne Shaw of Temple University and Andrew Borman, Digital Games Curator at the Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, New York.

For your inspiration, ingenuity, diligence, perseverance, tenacity, and concerted efforts to revive what had been previously thought to be lost to history – the world’s first LBGT computer game, originally published by me in 1989 – Caper in the Castro.

It was a Christmas gift beyond anything I could have imagined.
