The XR Creators speaker series is a regular event held by the XR Creators Unite community, where community members and others interested in VR and AR gather to share information. This week's featured speaker is David Fox.

David Fox co-founded Marin Computer Center, the world’s first public-access microcomputer center in 1977. He co-authored the books Computer Animation Primer, Armchair BASIC, and Pascal Primer, and then in 1982 became a founding member of Lucasfilm Games/LucasArts. During his 10 years at Lucasfilm, he was a game designer, project leader, and/or programmer for Rescue on Fractalus!, Labyrinth, Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure. He was also the primary SCUMM scriptor on Maniac Mansion, and experience designer for the location-based entertainment (LBE) project, Mirage.

David most recently completed work on Thimbleweed Park, a Kickstarter-funded graphics adventure with ex-LucasArts members Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, where he was a game scriptor/programmer, game designer, sound designer, and writer. He currently heads up Electric Eggplant, creating mobile and AR/VR/MR games with a strong interest in LBVR. His current project is taking his 2013 Rube Works: The Official Rube Goldberg Invention Game and adapting it to work in VR.
