Damiano was born with a Commodore 64 by his side. It taught him how to program basic adventure games and introduced him to new genres. Then came a love affair with Sega, and with it, Sonic and Outrun. That love spawned The Genesis Temple, a website dedicated to gaming history and retro games, which Damiano has been operating since 1997. In addition to the Genesis, Damiano specialises in gaming history, indie games, and triple-A RPGs.
