Nick is one of the most brilliant game designers of our day. Most people will go through their entire career without having a commercial suc ... cess on the level of Diner Dash, a game that has touched over half a billion people. And that's not my favorite of his games (which would be Plantasia). Nick has incredible range, designing games and interactive experiences to promote healthy causes as well as for purely artistic endeavors. I look forward to the day when I can work with Nick again.
