I am arrived! I'm a designer/programmer/producer and have spent most of the last 11 years making games (apart from the time spent making tea, which probably accounts for about 10 years of that).

I used to work at Free Radical Design and Crytek UK, I now run Eggbox Interactive and work mostly as a freelance designer/programmer/producer. I'd also like to develop a few games of my own, if I can ever find the time.

This site was recommended by a former colleague, looking forward to getting to know the community here!

Hi, I'm Belgian software engineer hoping to become a game programmer. My only industry experience was my internship at Larian Studios.

Hello all!

I was in QA for a year before leaving the industry to design apps and now I'm back as a Game Designer. I've been in the position for just under a year now.

Looks like a great community and I'll be floating around here picking up nuggets of wisdom to carry me through the start of my career. Hopefully.

You`ll learn here to be wary of producers. That`s about it

Talking Greetings Mortals!

Hi everyone - I probably know quite a few of you already!
To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 10 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.


I've been in the games industry since around '98, when I began working as a freelance reviewer for several websites. I then co-ran Absolute Playstation for a couple of years.

In 2003 I started working in games PR, and since then, I have worked in QA, in art/print co-ordination, as PA to the CEOs of TIGA and Beriah (and a brief stint as a producer at Beriah, where I helped to place two external teams with Ubi on Driver: San Fran).

I have designed and published three iPhone Apps under my own label, have designed two DS games based on CBeebies shows, and have spent the last few years proofreading and editing in-game text, p-mats, and marketing copy for several publishers, both in the UK and overseas.

I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to make a living from a hobby (been gaming since around '77-ish).... and not have it destroy my love of games!

Other stuff: big SciFi geek, lover of superheroes, culinary goddess, and digital nomad (working freelance enables me to live all over the world)!

Looking forward to reconnecting with old chums, and connecting with new ones!
