Did you now that Shigeru Miyamoto was born today in 1952? He is a Japanese video game designer and has been called “the father of modern video games” and “the most influential game creator in history”. Some of the games he helped to create include: Donkey Kong, Super Mario Brothers, the Legend of Zelda, and Wii Sports. Donkey Kong was the first game where the designers planned the story told by a game before programming how a game would work.

We hope that you have an influential day at school. Remember to think kind thoughts, use kind words, and do kind things. We Love You.

Bonus Fact: Before starting his career in video game design, Miyamoto earned a degree in industrial design and hoped to work as a professional comic book artist.
