About Casey Scheld

Casey Scheld has been playing video-games since 1991, during the 16-bit days of Sonic the Hedgehog (still a fan to this day!). After renting a SEGA Genesis from Blockbuster, he quickly became a fan of video games and became a regular at the local Golfland arcade. Street Fighter II, Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo, Dance Dance Revolution Extreme, and the big red Neo-Geo MVS were regular staples, even to the point of him investing in a metal dancing pad and making a mini–Neo Geo arcade cabinet of his own!

Since then, he’s turned his love of video games into a passion project. He previously worked with Frozen Codebase on Jam City Rollergirls (working alongside professional roller derby girls) and Konami on BurgerTime: World Tour. He also served as a Community Manager at the gaming startup Raptr from 2011 to 2014, working with Blizzard, AMD, and Ubisoft.

While he does gravitate toward fighting games and is a true-blue Sonic fan, he is especially drawn to the indie gaming scene. From stock market-based anime visual novels to new-school old-school titles, he truly appreciates the creativity that comes with the space.
