Billy Mitchell is a former competitive video game player. He initially rose to national prominence in the 1980s when Life magazine included him in a photo spread of video game champions during the height of the golden age of arcade video games. Mitchell was subsequently recognized by Twin Galaxies and Guinness World Records as the holder of several records on classic games.
Mitchell’s achieved the first perfect score of 3,333,360 points on the original Pac-Man arcade on July 3, 1999. David Ramsey, writing for the Oxford American in 2006, described Mitchell as “probably the greatest arcade video game player of all time”.
Throughout the early 2000s and 2010s, Mitchell was an interview subject in several documentaries on competitive gaming and retrogaming, including Chasing Ghosts: Beyond the Arcade (2007), The King of Arcades (2014), and Man vs Snake: The Long and Twisted Tale of Nibbler (2015). Mitchell was a subject of the 2007 documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters (2007), which followed his attempts to maintain his high score on Donkey Kong after it was threatened by newcomer Steve Wiebe.

“I love chess, the Rubik’s cube, and freestyle rap. To some, these interests may sound like cliché nerd stuff, but I see them as exercises for pre visualization. With pre-visualization, you can theoretically time travel and create what you want for the future of your idea. With proper execution, the thing you pre-visualized will become a reality. These sorts of things thrill me.”
Dan Jolley started writing professionally at age 19. Beginning in comic books, he worked for most of the major American publishers, such as DC (Firestorm), Marvel (Dr. Strange), Dark Horse (Aliens), and Image (G.I. Joe), soon branching out into licensed-property novels (Star Trek), film novelizations (Iron Man), and original novels, including the Middle Grade Urban Fantasy series Five Elements and the Urban Sci-Fi Gray Widow Trilogy.
Dan started writing for video games in 2007, and since then has contributed storylines, characters, and dialogue to titles such as Transformers: War for Cybertron, Prototype 2, and Dying Light. Recently, he sold a pilot for a live-action TV series to Nickelodeon with co-creator Shawn deLoache. (More details on that as things progress.)
