Chris Tang is an accomplished game designer, cosplayer, and eSports personality. He's known as the voice of the Classic Tetris World Championship and the "BOOM! Tetris for Jeff!" meme. Chris' commentary helped propel the CTWC to tens of millions of views online, with a historic broadcast debut on ESPN in 2019. As a competitive gamer, Chris is best known for winning the "Rock the Rock" $25,000 Sonic & Knuckles Sega World Championship on MTV, but it was becoming a Nintendo World Championships City Champion that kicked off his career in the game industry. "Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike", "Marvel Vs. Capcom", "Transformers", "Gauntlet IV", "Tetris", "Primal Rage", and the infamously canceled "Primal Rage II" are among the games and franchises Chris has contributed game design, writing, voice acting, and production work for. Chris is currently the co-creator and Senior Game Designer on "Strike Blazinger", a successor to the high-speed rail shooters of the arcade era with a strong anime influence - that was first revealed here at Saboten Con.
