Edward Del Castillo is the Founder, President, and Chief Creative Officer or Liquid Entertainment.  A position which he has held for 16 years.

Prior to founding Liquid, he served as Senior Producer for Lord British Studios and Firaxis within Origin Systems. There he created, developed, and produced the first three-dimensional Ultima game, advised on Ultima Online, and produced Sid Meier's Gettysburg!. Within Lord British Studios, he pioneered and managed the transition from two dimensional gaming to three dimensions, including creating the design, art and code pipelines necessary to transition the entire department from two- to three- dimensional gaming.

Prior to his work at Origin, Mr. Del Castillo worked at Westwood Studios, where he served as the Producer on the original Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn, and Red Alert, along with several expansions, ports, and other projects. On Command & Conquer and Red Alert, he was the primary creative and managerial force responsible for the creation, design, and production of all aspects of these titles. Under his supervision, these genre creating titles went on to become some of the most well awarded titles in gaming history. Mr. Del Castillo’s deep understanding of game design has led him to be well published throughout the industry.

As Founder, President and Chief Creative Officer of Liquid Entertainment, Del Castillo's first game was Battle Realms, published by Crave Entertainment and Ubisoft in November 2001 to critical acclaim. Battle Realms is a real-time strategy, PC game for Windows that features an unconventional approach to resource management and unit development. It was well received by reviewers, many of whom praised its at-the-time state of the art 3D engine and East Asian-inspired setting and aesthetics. It was nominated Best PC Strategy game of 2002 by The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, and was chosen for Computer Gaming World's Top 10 Games of E3 2001. Liquid Entertainment has since released multiple next-gen console titles and also mobile, social and casual games to critical success in its 16 years in business. These titles include the intellectual properties of The Lord of the Rings, ABC's Desperate Housewives, Marvel Comics' Thor and the Dungeons and Dragons series.
