Paul Bettner


Paul Bettner joined Ensemble Studios in 1997 at the age of 20 and somehow still holds the dubious honor of being the youngest team member. In 1994, Bettner developed an IPX network emulation system (SerIPX) that enabled thousands of users to play the first four-player-over-modem games of Duke3D, Warcraft 2, and Descent on Game Connection BBSs and ISPs worldwide. He's been hooked on multiplayer development ever since. At Ensemble Studios, Bettner has worked on the Age of Empires series and is currently developing the communications infrastructure for Ensemble's next-generation titles
