Chris Taylor

I’m Chris Taylor, lead designer of games like Total Annihilation, Dungeon Siege, Supreme Commander, founder of Gas Powered Games and former general manager of Wargaming Seattle.

Chris Taylor is a Canadian video game developer/designer/entrepreneur most famous for developing Total Annihilation and the Dungeon Siege series and for founding Gas Powered Games. Chris was born in British Columbia, Canada, and started out at a small video games company called Distinctive Software where he developed early PC games Hardball II, 4D boxing and worked on the Test Drive and Fifa Soccer franchises. Chris left in 1995 and moved to Seattle where he designed and developed Total Annihilation and later founded Gas Powered Games. At GPG Chris and his team developed the Dungeon Siege and Supreme Commander franchises before selling the company to Wargaming.net, makers of World of Tanks. Chris left Wargaming in 2016 to start a new company, this time as an indie developer to once again return to the world of RTS gaming.

Chris on the documentary Moleman 4 – Longplay:

“I think the first thing that I realized when I was introduced to the project and the film was that this was going to be pretty educational as well as interesting. I actually pride myself on studying video game history and knowing a lot about what’s happened in the development of video
games around the world, so this is filling in a really important piece of the picture, of what happened in the 80s and 90s.”
