Brooks Brown is Starbreeze’s global director of virtual reality. He previously worked on the Avatar digital franchise and Lucasfilm web games like Lego Star Wars. He is a curious choice for a violent video game spokesman, especially one that involves shooting. “I suffer from massive PTSD,” he says. “VR is being used for PTSD therapy and helps anxiety sufferers and other significant mental issues. It interacts and messes with the neurons in your brain. It puts you in a dreamlike state.” Brown won’t divulge what prompted his post-traumatic stress disorder, but it may have something to do with surviving the 1999 Columbine school massacre. He co-authored a book called No Easy Answers: The Truth Behind Death at Columbine High School.

The last VR game that Starbreeze produced was much scarier: Overkill’s The Walking Dead. The zombie-TV-show–based game terrified players. At one point during the VR experience, someone in the unvirtual reality would grab the gamer like a zombie would in the virtual world. “People really freaked out,” says Brown. “Screaming the whole time.”

Glad to see that Brooks Brown is in the news for something not relating to the tragedy. From what I understand, he's done with discussing the event.

I heard a rumor online that Brooks and his second wife are currently expecting his first child.

If this is true, I wish his new family many happy years ahead.
