I was literally one day from packing my shit and moving out Orange County CA and back to Arkansas. My first job in CA was Director of Internet Technologies for Carl's Jr (Hardees, Raleys, Green Burrito, and a few others). In 1999 I was fired because “the YK2 is going to kill us all” and I had to find a job. I spent a summer working in the mall frame store and went from making really good money to ...not. It was the '90s and most companies didn't have email, let alone knew what the internet was, how to get on it, or how to use it. So when I heard about Prolific, working in video games sounded pretty good.
Prolific Publishing was best known for Return Fire, Return Fire II, and Disney Animation System. I loved DAS and was thrilled to work at Prolific for this reason.
