Background

Matt Miller started out in the gaming industry in 1993 at Domark Software (which later became Eidos Interactive) as a game tester and phone support. He worked on many titles at Eidos and left in 1999 when he moved to Southern California to work at Prolific Publishing as a producer.

Trivia

  • In a topic suggesting Clowns as a new Mastermind power set, Positron immediately rejected the idea. Many players assumed this meant he had a fear of them (coulrophobia).
    • In a forum post[1] about this, he corrected this assumption and revealed that he has a fear of spiders (arachnophobia).
