    In 1980, computers were instruments of science and mathematics, military secrets and academia. Stern administrators lorded over sterile university laboratories and stressed one point to the wide-eyed students privileged enough to set foot within them: Computers were not toys. Defying authority, hackers seized control of monolithic mainframes to create a new breed of computer game: the roguelike, cryptic, and tough-as-nails adventures drawn from text-based symbols instead of state-of-the-art 3-D graphics.

After four years working together on smaller videogames, the two brothers had pooled their resources to create Rogue Legacy, a game exponentially larger in scope than any they had created before. Seven days and 100,000 sales later, they were back in the black. Their recipe for success: 18 months, countless arguments, a surprisingly popular game about holding one's bowels, and unwavering trust.
