Will Wright

Will Wright is the founder of the Maxis world computer programming giant. Wright started designing computer games with the Raid on Bungeling Bay helicopter simulator in 1984. However, being more attracted by the construction of scenarios than by the development of play action, he became involved in an ambitious project of the simulation of urban surroundings known as Sim City, which came onto the market in 1989 to huge success. Subsequently he also worked on The Sims, which became the best-selling computer game of all time.
