Start on Star Wars GalaxiesEdit
In the summer of 2002, Tyson finally gave in to the lure of the game industry and got a job at Origin where he worked on Ultima X Odyssey. Having grown up playing the old Ultima games, it was an amazing opportunity for him. When the summer of 2004 rolled around, the studio closed before his team could finish the game, but it was a great learning experience. He "had the opportunity to create worlds." After that, Tyson landed a job with SOE. He started as a programmer working on game engine tools. He wrote an NPC editor and a quest editor. Eventually, Tyson moved on to Star Wars Galaxies full time.
When Star Wars Galaxies was shut down on December 15 2011, the site's content was taken down the next day and replaced with a thank-you letter to the players from Tony "Teesquared" Tyson.
