Eric Wile

Location: AA80

ERIC WILE is a credited video game designer. He has done level design, storyboarding, concept design, game engine design etc.

His passion for gaming started when he was very young. He started playing the Atari and was so good that he collected a wide scale of badges and letters from the game companies. He was even mentioned as one of the top 25 players in the nation when he was only 8 years old. During this time he started to develop a reputation at the arcades in Colorado as the player to beat. He broke many long-held records for the Atari as well.

In 2002 Eric moved to San Diego for the chance of a lifetime. He accepted an offer from Verant Interactive. Verant was later bought by Sony and the name was changed to Sony Online Entertainment. They started producing and developing MMOs and ironically at the time this was Sony’s most profitable division.

During his time at Sony Online Entertainment, Eric had a major hand in the development of several extremely popular titles such as "EverQuest", "EverQuest II", "EverQuest Online Adventures", "PlanetSide", "Star Wars: Galaxies" and "Vanguard Saga of Heroes". His crowning achievement was his involvement with the popular EverQuest franchise, even going so far as to develop "EverQuest: Macintosh Edition", which earned him the prestigious Sony Achievement award.

He is currently in production of his own indie tabletop game.
