Nateight
Chief Talker

Nateight has been a true believer in the power of VR since reading Neuromancer as a teenager - to this day, he can't remember which one of them came up with the idea of the Matrix first. Now 35, Nate has been a citizen of the Internet for the majority of his life, and has never been more excited by a project, a team, a movement, a community, a technology, a vision, or a moment in history. He plays Spelunky not because he hates himself, but mostly just to forget about how much he misses Fantasy Earth: Zero.
