CareerEdit

Daedalus Games began when Robin Laws approached Jose Garcia in 1993 with an idea for a Hong Kong Action Cinema RPG; Garcia liked the idea, but he made his own RPG Nexus: The Infinite City his first priority; Daedalus published it in 1994 with Garcia as the main designer and developer, with Laws, Bruce Baugh, and Rob Heinsoo as additional authors.[1]:256 However, Garcia was also interested in promoting the setting that Laws was working on, which was first used as a basis of a collectible card game Daedalus published as Shadowfist (1995),[1]:256 and subsequently in Laws' Feng Shui RPG.[citation needed] When the CCG market crashed in 1997, the staff of Daedalus were laid off or quit, leaving Jose Garcia and his sister Maria as the only people working for the company.[1]:256 A few years later the company entered bankruptcy protection and sold off its intellectual properties,[citation needed] after which Garcia moved to Europe and left the gaming industry.[1]:256
