Dev Profile: Paul McInnes -

As tight lipped as Micro Fote has been in recent months, we finally crack the surface as Paul McInnes joins our series of developer profile Q&As. Citizen Zero is a sci-fi MMORPG in development for the XBox and PC. The gaming industry draws from all quarters. Can you run us through how you came to your current job?

Paul McInnes: By a very indirect path. I have been making games of various kinds since I was eight, wrote my first computer game in the 1980s and have been making games as a hobby ever since.

If I wasn’t working in the games industry I would be studying online social interaction and dynamics as an academic.
