Wraith Games “started when I was in high school,” Kidd said.
“We were just a group of friends who decided to make some video games. We had absolutely no clue what we were doing,” he previously told the Journal-News.
Kidd started at Fairfield High School and graduated in 2008 from the Butler Tech School for the Arts in Hamilton. By graduation, Wraith had about 30 “small-game prototypes that we’d worked on, that we ended up releasing online for free,” he previously said. “… It was a learning process.”
