In 1985 USA Games president and founder, Thomas Ward, discovered he had an eye disease called Optic Atrophy. Over the following years the disease damaged his optic nerves leaving Thomas blinded for life. However, prier to losing his vision he had time to enjoy many classic video games including such titles as: Packman, Space Invaders, Double Dragon, Star Wars, Tomb Raider, and more. He dreamed one day to make his own games he himself could play even though he was blind.
In the fall of 1997 Thomas Ward entered college at Wright State University located in Dayton Ohio. While at Wright State Thomas began taking courses in computer science. Two of his favorite fields were software design and computer network administration. He knew almost from the beginning he wanted to design software made for people with blindness and other physical disabilities.
In the spring of 2004 Thomas ward founded USA Games Entertainment. A privately owned online game company dedicated to making audio games for the blind and low vision driven by sound rather than graphics. His first accessible audio game for Microsoft Windows was Final Conflict, and soon many more were in production as well
