CEO of Splash Damage Talks Shacknews, Quake & More

This lifelong Shacker has so many stories to tell!


Paul Wedgwood, Co-Founder and CEO of Splash Damage, was on hand to discuss Splash Damage and its upcoming products during Reboot Develop 2018, but there's something even cooler you may not know about him to discover: He's a Shacker!

Yes, Paul visits Shacknews, and back in the day, he was also a big Shugashack fan (going all the way back to sCary's Shugashack).

"You read Planet Quake, Blue's News, and Shacknews. It had a tone that was very distinct, and it was very brown and black," Wedgwood said in regard to what made Shacknews stand out from the rest of the pack back then. 

"I think there are some of those sites that were there when we started, part of the original community. You're talking about a time where id Software were barely making their games. Those early days of the industry, people have a nostalgia for."

"Now you have dads telling their kids to reach Shack," Wedgwood added.
