Starr Long

Starr Long has been in the business of making PC games for more than a dozen years. Alongside Richard Garriott, he was the original Project Director for the commercially successful Ultima Online. Starr worked his way up through the ranks of Origin Systems, Inc. starting in Quality Assurance working on Wing Commander, Ultima, and many other titles for Origin. In 2001 Starr teamed with Garriott to start the Destination Games studio in Austin, which was later acquired by Korean gaming giant, NCsoft. Starr’s latest collaboration with Garriott is Tabula Rasa, a sci-fi massively multiplayer online game that released in November last year. As it approaches the game’s one-year anniversary, NCsoft is launching Operation Immortality, www.operationimmortality.com, a program that enables Tabula Rasa players and space enthusiasts to participate in having their DNA and personal messages digitized and taken into space when Garriott travels to the International Space Station in October.
