Welcome to chronicle live first of all what is -- my beloved leader. Dallas Steve is basically when we looked at by developing on the -- that I found. -- we see all these games that ever simple and very fun and we're all big sports fan and so and and you know that big -- the Ron Amadon that. We basically tried Q combine all the fun and simple game play mechanics that you see on the iPhone and make the I found such a great -- platform. Combine that with our loved sports and so. You know that's that's basically the premise for what you -- -- work. Didier sports before and helped create. Madden football's -- what seemed a sideline a little bit this is the anti. Madden game words so complicated the play met you almost have to let them call the plays like John picked the formation of the Sony bought this is football. It's in the simplest form it's almost gone back to the days of the electronic. Football league table would shake a little bit and just -- -- football in this study hall kind of kind of a field that's exactly -- -- -- that the basic premise of that of that game was it was paper football as a game that you get from playing in the end in middle school. And I think. You know gaming has a ball to a point where there are these games that are so difficult that really do you take years and years to master like man. And I think with the I thought has gone and got pentagon has. It brought us back cute those things that we love you know of the game that we love in the eighties and in when gaming per start which was just. Pure simple fun. And our until we basically taken that. Slick football mechanic and combine that with you know with other things were Steve we're basically the premise of the game as he throws Stephen the end zone course he's trying to score touchdowns. To -- -- the quarterback for most it is -- is the is the everything he's got better and you know we we. Puts even -- kind of precarious situations that's you know -- as your your audience for now. Ron Amadon was known for being this dynamic running quarterback before Michael Vick before Vince Young there was there was Steve young and we tried to bring that out and throw things and Steve where he had to avoid tornadoes it's important these wild -- you know that are kind of on the -- that revenge of their ancestors being used as pigskin all those years and we have -- -- we have -- You know bombs in mind then and I -- -- beat the did -- great -- you know he's a very entrepreneurial guy and -- -- he gave us them. Creative leeway on this and and really contributed to panicking that the final product I always dusty would be the governor Vuitton purse of the president of the United States has trying to -- -- wild borders but. How involved -- -- in the actual making and a development of the game has stayed kind of guy to get to the subsidies company with -- he he's heavily involved I mean something about Steve that he. He really any -- just playing career ended you know he's been involved and had -- he's been involved in product he's got a project that he's working -- so. He he's just he just tried a lot of different things and and Steve in terms of this game in a -- do we now look at me that. What what the deal but I'm gonna donate everything I make. My charity that forever young foundation. And this is that this is something he's promoted and and you know found that fifteen years ago it helps children across the world.
