Mark Rosewater- Lead Designer of Magic: The Gathering ( magicthegathering.com )
David Sirlin - Creator of the Fantasy Strike series of games ( sirlin.net )

I have read extensively on the design and development of these games and have incorporated many of the philosophies and lessons learned into Mage Tower, while making sure that Mage Tower is a unique experience unlike any other card game.
