15 years ago we delivered a downloadable product that went viral, the beginning of our Gaming Evolution.
I was interviewed recently regarding that successful undertaking. A link to the interview follows..
It was dream for a long time to launch a digital marketing agency.
As early as 1993, before ‘Chris Jones Media’ existed, I was building websites for real estate agents, and had a side business with on-site computer consulting, taking care of software issues for customers in their own home.
This continued while I was involved in PC Gaming, modifying existing games, in the science fiction genre, with improved graphics, sound effects, and gameplay.
This evolved into leading a team of about 20 people on a mission to completely transform a particular PC Game into something much better than it was.
I was interviewed in March 2023 about this game modification by some fans of our ‘mod’. In this interview I talk about organizing teams, accomplishing goals and becoming sought after.

Our modification of a #startrek pc game garnered many thousands of downloads and is still downloaded to this day.
I mention my gaming days because of the challenges involved in coordinating people from around the world in different time zones and with conflicting personalities.
Along the way I developed a deep understanding of what consumers need and want, and how to communicate with them effectively.
This, coupled with being in Radio Broadcasting and Face to Face sales in various industries, led to a deep understanding of consumer pain points, and the methods to take care of them.
This is my Gaming Evolution.
Because of that, I formed Chris Jones Media. Initially I was building Websites – and later added Voice and Video Creation services, along with business advice.
Over the past year, with a few collaborations and work hiccups I came to understand true teamwork and it became apparent that my long held dream can be done: I have built a digital agency at chrisjonesmedia.com. That is my ‘Gaming Evolution’.
My experiences in the gaming industry set me up for what is happening today. As Sir Patrick Stewart said more than once, “Make It So”!
