I'm going to be working at Hidden Path Entertainment starting tomorrow as a game designer. I'm going to be paid more than I was at SOE, so that's nice, and its a smaller company which could mean any number of things depending on how you look at it. I look at it as an opportunity to get my ideas out to the game world in a less filtered manner, because I'll be one of two designers working under the design director ( I said its a small outfit!).
I'm excited to see what this new adventure will bring, and I hope I'm coherent because I took a sleeping pill an hour ago to try and get me into bed before the 3am average I've been doing the past 2 months.
When I know more about my employers, I'm sure i'll be able to tell you more about them. Right now, I know that they have released a relatively popular tower defense game called Defense Grid on a few platforms, they have done some contract work for other development companies and publishers, and they do a lot of cutting edge experimental stuff for big companies.
Anyways, we are excited, and I hope you are too lol. It was a bumpy 7 weeks for me, but I'm glad to be on my feet so soon.
Now I can spend some of my free time on pursuits other than job searching... like say, video games and music! That would be nice, wouldn't it?
