Tim Schafer

Ok, many of you know Tim Schafer as the evil robot who destroyed Atlantis, but this post is about another Tim Schafer.  This Schafer is a game designer who has worked on some of the greatest games known to man or robot.  Known for his ability to tell funny stories that make people laugh like hyenas, Tim Shafer is an exellent game designer who has earned a spot in the dojo of fame.

Selected Gameography:

  • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade – Tester
  • Maniac Mansion – not sure what he did…but he did something
  • The Secret of Monkey Island – Co-Writer & Programmer
  • Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge – Co-Writer & Programmer
  • Day of The Tentacle – Co-Designer, Co-Writer, Co-Producer, Co-Director

At this point, he left Lucasarts and formed his own company Double Fine Productions

So if you have’nt played a Tim Shafer game, DO IT NOW!  (I am currently on Day of the Tentacle…it is hilarious)
