"Anyone who reads DieHard GameFan is already aware of David Perry and our admiration for him. It's not that he's the only brilliant programmer out there — with your best interest in mind, there are few... How he has managed to surround himself with people that are all equally suited is a mystery, but he has. Shiny Entertainment is about to blow the roof off of the Action / Platform category. We are proud to be one of the first to show you Shiny's new character, Earth Worm Jim. You're about to get a taste of what Dave can do when Dave is in charge. During a recent visit to Shiny, I was in complete awe of what he has accomplished. I have never seen a team of guys so dedicated to a project, while having so much fun doing it. This is what our industry needs more of. This is how legendary characters are made."
