Do I want to start another company? That’s what Andrew Paradise pondered in 2012. At age 28, he’d already struck entrepreneurial gold sell- ing his mobile payment company AisleBuyer
to tax-prep software company Intuit, reportedly for more
than $80 million. “It would have to be something I really
wanted to work on for a big chunk of my life,” he says.
That “something” was gaming. In eighth grade, Para-
dise spent 40-plus hours a week creating online computer
games to play with friends. “I would wait until my parents
fell asleep and stay up all night to work on it,” he recalls.
