Artist, developer and entrepreneur in film, video games and communications, Steve Hutchison co-founds Shade.ca Art and Code in 1999, then Terror.ca and its French translation Terreur.ca, in 2000. Steve worked on such games as Capcom's Street Fighter, PopCap's Bejeweled, Tetris, Bandai/Namco's Pac-Man and Mattel's Skip-Bo & Phase 10 as a localization manager, 2-D artist and usability expert.
Helped by software engineer Jason Kealey, Steve Hutchison imagined a horror movie review system that was filterable, searchable and sortable by ambiance, genre and content; something that could only be constructed by true fans and for fans.
In March 2013, Steve Hutchison started developing Tales of Terror, this site, with the same goals in mind but with a much finer technology and complex engine, something that wasn’t possible then.

Sylvain was game tester and editor for Tales of Terror’s gamified book “31 Days of Terror” in 2017. His experience and love of games made him the perfect candidate to rein in a peculiar concept.
He enjoyed books from a very young age. As an 11-year-old kid, Dungeons & Dragons especially intrigued him. He envisioned their books as a mean to turn the imaginary into reality. Soon, he began collecting all means of Tabletop Dungeons & Dragons items: books, figurines, maps and dice. He spent all of his teen years playing it as Dungeon Master.
Among his friends, he is the anti-conformist and the natural born leader. He loves directing games and establishing new grounds for his fellow team players. He has a knack for the surreal and the imaginary, tempered by an indomitable taste for perfection. He is known as the chaotic one for having the capacity of critical thinking and letting loose the impossible all at once. His mother is a perfectionist and a French teacher. His father is the adventurous type. This combination probably molded him into the ultimate Dungeon Master. Editing and correcting come naturally and may be attributed to an Obsessive-Compulsive disorder. An inseparable and insufferable part of him.
