If one were to sculpt the Mt. Rushmore of PC gaming, Scott Miller’s rugged visage would deserve a prominent position besides the likenesses of other visionaries such as Sid Meier and Will Wright. Miller almost single-handedly laid the foundations for the video game industry’s arrival in Texas with the founding of Apogee Software, Ltd., which helped studios such as id Software get their start. Arguably even more famously, he pioneered the concept of shareware—splitting full games into episodic chunks and giving away the first chunk for free.
