IamA game design veteran of 15 years (SOE, Insomniac, and Blizzard). I recently started my own company and our first game launches today. Ask Me Anything.
I've worked as a designer on the following games and am happy to answer any questions you have on them:
- EverQuest Online Adventures
- Champions of Norrath (1 & 2)
- Ratchet & Clank (Deadlocked, Tools of Destruction, Crack in Time, Quest for Booty)
- Resistance (1 & 2)
- Diablo 3
- EverQuest Next / Landmark
It'd be super cool if you were also curious about my new game, which was formed out of a bet with a friend that I couldn't take all of the most overused tropes on the AppStore and make a decent game out of them. That game is Zombie Match Defense, it won Pocket Gamer's Big Indie Pitch and is available on iOS in most territories now, and Android by the year's end.
If you've got questions about game development in general, places I've worked, or people I've worked with, I'll tell you practically anything you wanna know.
Okay, I'm gonna shut it down for the night. Thanks for all the questions! It's 12:35am here and I need to get some rest. Tomorrow morning I'm headed up to IndieCade in LA and will be showing off Zombie Match Defense. I'll try to answer some more before I head out and whenever I've got breaks.
