Craig Chapman (@Iron_Cowboy) - Editor in Chief, Founder
Craig’s only experience in writing to date is writing papers and essays. He loves video games of all sorts, but has a deep, burning passion for grand-scale RTS and TBS games in particular. He has an even deeper, burning-er passion for ludicrously difficult games because he only enjoys games that would make lesser men weep. Some of his favourites include X-COM: UFO Defense, Rome: Total War, and Hearts of Iron II. He enjoys wit, sarcasm, and long walks on the holodeck he pretends he has.
Mark Woo (@Makukiko)- Managing Editor, Founder
Mark is an entrepreneur with a passion for video games. He’s written for various blogs on Tech, Gadgets, Video Games, Video Game Reviews and even Relationships. Founder of the Social Media Network, the first and only social media inter-university student organization, Mark is excited to make Rare Candies the best Vancouver based Video Game blog. Mark loves all video game genres, but is a particular fan of RPGs, TBS, and NBA2K12. Some of his favourites include Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, Mass Effect 2, and Oblivion.
Paul Wang – Associate Editor
Paul is the artistic half of independent developer SpaceCat Studios. In addition to making games for Adobe Flash, he spends far too much free time writing and sketching out science fiction and fantasy settings. A PC gamer to his very bones, Paul has a particular love for sandbox RPGs, MMOs and strategy games of all scopes and complexities. Caustic, motor-mouthed, and prone to sarcasm, Paul is best approached with a riot shield and a cattle prod.
Corinne Dy (@Corinnedy) – Associate Editor
Corinne’s fascination with games all started when she was a toddler watching her brother play and script games on his PC. Since then she has been sucked into the wonderful world of Skyrim and Pallet Town. She is newcomer to the blogging realm but she hopes to put her passion for games into words. Corinne is excited to share and explore new ideas and games with likeminded gamers. Corinne enjoys sandbox RPGs, MMORPG, TBS and adventure games. She currently attends UBC and on her freetime the College of Winterhold.
