Christopher Howard Wolf (born September 21, 1979) is an independent game developer and writer. He is the founder of independent game company WRONG Games, for which he works as a game designer. He is known for work on the games DragonSpires, I'm O.K - A Murder Simulator, Hell Rising, and Scroll Wars. He also authored a graphic novel retelling the story of Nosferatu, and has appeared on Dawson's Creek and in the English dubbing of You're Under Arrest!.
In 1997, then 17 year old Wolf and Adam Maloy took over production on DragonSpires, a community-driven multiplayer game initiated by Dragon's Eye Productions. Wolf served as creative administrator of the game, in charge of producing a storyline and pixel art, among other duties, until 2002. In a much smaller capacity, Wolf also assisted independent game maker Derek Yu with games such as Mean Cuisine and I'm O.K - A Murder Simulator, which was an ultra-violent game based on Jack Thompson's "A Modest Proposal".
DragonSpires later served as the inspiration for Wolf's browser-based multiplayer game, Scroll Wars, which was opened to the public in 2006. One year later in 2007, Wolf also opened Hell Rising, a zombie vs. vampire vs. survivor browser-based game inspired by and building upon its predecessor, Urban Dead.
In 2008, Wolf authored a well-received installment in Josh Howard presents: Sasquatch published by Viper Comics. He also authored a graphic novel retelling the 1922 film Nosferatu for a modern audience and a creator-owned series titled Love Monster.
Additionally, he wrote, illustrated, and created the webcomic Escapeman for ten years and wrote reviews for Pop Thought. His fan page for The Atomics by Mike Allred also appeared in Wizard Magazine.
Wolf was a voice actor for the English dub of the Anime series You're Under Arrest! and appeared on episodes of Dawson's Creek, most notably as a sideburned student in an episode spoofing The Blair Witch Project.
