MEET THE SIXERS: Anthony Leung

Anthony Leung - Executive Producer & Co-Founder

For Anthony, games have always been a way to build relationships. As a kid, he played Apple IIe games like Lode Runner and BurgerTime with his sister and twin brother.

Over the years, his tastes evolved from competitive online shooters, to RTSes, and finally to MMOs. In Ultimate Online, he found his most important gaming experiences. The virtual friendships forged here were just as deep and meaningful as his real-life ones.

Now, with experience as Development Director of League of Legends, Anthony has co-founded Singularity 6 with the goal of bringing the magic of virtual communities to a larger audience.

Aidan Karabaich - Game Director & Co-Founder

Aidan first developed his passion for gaming by playing Atari 2600 and NES games with his grandmother. Her exceptional skill at games like Pacman, and later Super Mario, drove Aidan to practice until he could match her skill.

MMORPGs like Everquest had a huge impact on Aidan, and as a professional game designer he spent many of his formative years working on games in the genre, including Wildstar and Copernicus. More recently, he worked as a design lead in the R&D department at Riot Games, stewing up prototypes for exciting new game concepts.

Today, Aidan is excited to forge a new path at Singularity 6.
