If you met Stu Denman on a convention floor, you might mistake him for a fresh face to the video game business—but don’t let his approachable appearance and vibrant enthusiasm fool you. Denman co-founded his first video game development company in 1995 and has spent his career working with big name companies like Sony, Universal Studios, Activision, and Microsoft. Denman’s most recent escapade, a small indie team known as Pine Street Codeworks, launched in 2015, and its first project has already been snagging accolades left and right.

She’s inexplicably struck with a fatal case of fumble fingers every time she touches a controller—except when challenged to a match of her secret specialty: the 1995 hit SNES puzzle game Tetris Attack.
