Nov 3rd, 2009

Jordan has been the creative force behind a number of entertainment companies, including his newest venture, Smith & Tinker (connected toys), FASA Corporation (roleplaying games), Virtual World Entertainment (networked virtual reality entertainment) acquired by the Disney Family, FASA Interactive (PC games, including the MechWarrior franchise) acquired by Microsoft, WizKids (collectible games) acquired by Topps Inc., and 42 Entertainment (alternate reality gaming).

During his career, Jordan has created some of the largest and longest-lasting franchises in the gaming industry, including BattleTech/MechWarrior, Shadowrun and Crimson Skies.

With Smith & Tinker, Jordan is reinventing play for today’s children by creating toys and games that combine the endless expandability of online content and the power of neighborhood social dynamics to create a truly connected play experience that moves seamlessly between kids’ online and offline worlds.
