Office Progress

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

The mailbag post I made a few days ago got a lot of attention. Lots of speculation about my game idea. I get why, but I fucking hate it. Nothing we ever make will live up to the success of GMod. I don't want to be a AAA studio making massive budget AAA games. I want us to make small indie games. I want to be like introversion – not gearbox. So when people hype themselves up it's only setting everyone up for a fall.

So anyway. We're still in the process of renovating the office and hiring a team. We've pretty much hired two really promising artists so far – hopefully to be starting in April.. and our new receptionist started today. I'm struggling to find programmers though. It seems good programmers are few and far between.

We advertised on monster for a UI/graphic artist and a programmer. There have been about 10 times more applicants for the artist position than the programmer position. A lot of people applying for the programmer job have very little actual experience. One guy applied with no computer experience at all.. his only work experience was running a pub. He listed one of his hobbies as reading the holy bible.

Maybe monster is the wrong place to be hiring programmers. Where should I be advertising? Do you know anyone that's looking?

We've been concentrating on getting our reception area and meeting room finished over the last couple of weeks. Here's some photos!
