Mount Vernon man creates video game

MOUNT VERNON, IL (KFVS) - A Mount Vernon man is getting closer to living his dream with the release of a video game on Tuesday.

Michael Hicks is the creator of the game "Pillar."

That game will be made available to the public Tuesday. You can play it if you have a Playstation 4 or an Xbox 360.

“My next plan is I am actually on a radio tour right now, I am doing another gig tomorrow and then once that's over the game will be out," Hicks said. "Then I will be going to San Francisco for the Game Developers Conference and Pillar will be one of the 15 independent games featured there. So once that's over, I am going to enjoy that. That's going to be like my vacation I think, and once that's over I'm going to come back and probably work on some stuff full force again.”

Hicks started programming early in life.

He made his first game in seventh grade.
