Eric Wile

Eric Wile is a credited video game designer. He has done level design, story boarding, concept design, game engine
design etc. He currently resides in Colorful Colorado.
His passion for gaming started when he was young. He started playing the Atari when he was young and was so
good that he collected a wide scale of badges and letters from the game companies. He even got mentioned as
one of the top 25 players in the nation when he was only 8. 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 life time. He accepted an offer from Verant Interactive. Verant
later bought by Sony and the name was changed to Sony Online Entertainment. They started producing and
developing MMO’s 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.
However his crowning achievement was his involvement with the popular EverQuest franchise, even going so far
to develop EverQuest: Macintosh Edition, which earned him the prestigious Sony Achievement award.
He is currently in production of his own indie tabletop game.
