Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ken Williams (born October 1954) is an American game programmer and co-founder with his wife Roberta Williams of On-Line Systems, which later became Sierra On-Line. Roberta and Ken married at the age of 19 and have two children. The couple have been leading figures in the development of graphical adventure games. Their contribution to gaming was partially chronicled in the book Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution. Ken was the president of Sierra until the company was sold to CUC in July 1996, but he remained with the company leading its strategic direction until November 1997. Vivendi (now Activision Blizzard after the Vivendi Games and Activision and merger) currently holds the Sierra name.show more
