Company Info

SmartMonsters develops challenging online games for adults. Our games are blind-friendly, literate, and innovative. We've taken a gaming tradition with a retro pedigree — MUDs, MUSHs, MOOs, virtual worlds — and pushed it to levels of sophistication far beyond ordinary text adventures.

Gary Smith

Gary Smith

has been writing role-playing games longer than most of us have been... well anyway for a long time. He's the guy who ported Zork from MDL to C on the PDP, which is kind of poetic if you think about it. Gary has 30 years experience in the technology industry as an organization builder and senior manager.
