Luckily Gamer Leaf sits down with Michael Wright who is the Unfiltered Gamer. We had to interrupt his filming of Millennium Blades by Level 99 games and Eaggle-Gryphon Games’ Lisboa which would’ve never happened had Jen Igartua of pillbox games not stood up and told him we were looking for him. SO HUGE THANKS AND SHOUTOUT TO YOU JEN!
He started off with Fireball Island. He used to work in LA on stuff like Sharknado, a show on Netflix called Little Dead Rotting Hood (going out on a limb to say this movie isn’t family friendly) used to be a fan of monopoly and Risk. Unfortunately he wouldn’t reveal his Risk strategy to us, stating he’d rather play games like Small world and Cthulhu Wars by Petersen Games) Or, just roll the dice really well to win at Risk.
A lot of the work he does is with those running Kickstarter campaigns.
He has got the pleasure to work with Minion Games (miniongames) , Roxley (roxleygames), Wiz kids (wizkids), Petersen Games (PetersenGames)
