Matt Firor Information

Matt Firor is a 15+ year veteran of the online gaming industry. His first foray into online gaming was a failed attempt in 1987 to license the Scepter of Goth BBS multi-user roleplaying game. The second, more successful project was the co-founding of Interesting Systems with Rob Denton and two others, in 1990. At ISI, he was co-designer and lead content developer for ISI's multi-user BBS game Tempest (later renamed Darkness Falls).

ISI eventually merged with Adventures Unlimited Software to form Mythic Entertainment in 1995. Firor stayed at Mythic from 1995-2006, where he was the producer of most of Mythic's titles, including the worldwide MMORPG bestseller Dark Age of Camelot and its first two expansions. More recently, he was VP of Product Development at Mythic, where he was - along with COO Rob Denton- responsible for the management of all of Mythic's development projects. In 2005/06, he led up Mythic's internal Console technology team which assessed the future of MMORPGs on next-generation console platforms.

In June 2006, Firor left Mythic Entertainment to found Ultra Mega Games, a consulting company specializing in online gaming services.

He has lectured at the University of Virgina as well as Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and is a frequent speaker at industry conferences. He has written articles for Game Developer Magazine, and was a regular columnist, writing about online game development, for the Korean gaming magzine "Onplayer".
