My new employer is in the news today, so I figure I might as well spill the beans. I’m working as an entry-level associate junior producer-like guy at Redmond’s own Gas Powered Games, makers of fine family entertainment like Dungeon Siege, Supreme Commander, and the just-announced today Space Siege.
I am not, however, working on any of those games or franchises or series’ or sequels. Or anything else rumored or announced. In fact, nothing I’m working on actually exists. And if it/they did, I couldn’t tell anyone. Yet. Assuming there was even something I could tell anyone. Which there isn’t.
So what am I doing? Chris Taylor basically throws things at me all day, and I say, “Yes sir, thank you sir.” And then I feed him dried fruit from Whole Foods.
(Actually, we had a meeting in his office one day, and he had ungodly amounts of dried fruit and nuts… it was quite the spread. By the end, we did reach one consensus: The non-organic mango was better than the organic variety. And people wonder why games are always delayed….)
