Richard Garriott de Cayeux

Creator, Ultima franchise

"Dungeons & Dreamers tells the epic story of the rise of the games industry from its geeky roots to its mass market dominance."

Warren Spector

Creator, Deus Ex

"Most people think social gaming started with MySpace and Facebook. Dungeons & Dreamers puts the lie to that myth. I lived through the history the authors recount - in fact I was lucky enough to have played a small part in that history. Yet I learned something new on every page of Dungeons & Dreamers."

Anthony Savini

director, Dungeons & Dragons: A Documentary

"You wouldn’t expect the first chapter of a computer game history book to be about a pen and paper game, but once Dungeons & Dreamers points out the connection between D&D and it’s hard not to see everywhere."
