A musical prodigy from a young age, to many it always looked like Andrea Pessino was headed towards the music scene until the lure of the gaming industry pulled him away. How do you manage to juggle both passions and be a major part of some of the most prolific studios we’ve ever seen? Paul explores all of that along with stories from development behind the likes of Warcraft III, Starcraft II, Daxter, God of War, The Order 1886, Deformers and Lone Echo and the formation of Ready at Dawn with one of the studios co-founders in Andrea.
Born and bred on the Super Nintendo era, Paul relishes any opportunity to sink his teeth into an RPG, action or platformer. Despite being an owner of all major platforms, Paul does have a particular love of the Playstation family of consoles – take only a few minutes to skim through his Twitter and you’ll see him ranting about the next big thing on PS4. We swear he’s sane.
