Why Tetris Creator Secretly Plays World of Warcraft as Woman

Have you recently teamed up with a mysterious druid in World of Warcraft that happens to love math puzzles? You could have been on a raid with Tetris creator Alexey Pajitnov.

"I recently started playing World of Warcraft, and I'm still playing it and enjoying it a lot," Pajitnov said in a recent interview with Wired.com on the eve of his legendary puzzle game's 25th anniversary.

Pajitnov is currently playing a level-74 female druid in the popular massively multiplayer online game. And it's not his first character: He says he's also played a warlock up to level 70 and a hunter before that.

He never tells anyone that he created one of the most popular videogames of all time, though.

"Nobody even knows that I am male," he said. "I play just female characters."

The story is too old to be commented.
