Red Knight can make a catchy announcements for sure!
Thank you everyone for all your congratulations, nice words and friendly fuzzy names you gave me! I love you all!
Well, back to the topic now.
As, you all now know I got the job in EA Tiburon Studio in Orlando, FL. I can definitely can consider myself lucky, cause I would laugh at anyone who would tell me such thing a few months ago. But, besides the luck, there were many positive factors that determined the outcome. I am very excited and nervous now, but I believe that all the things will work out.
I sure should have said something earlier, but I am now in the middle of the turmoil I had thrown myself into: all the move preparation and new housing searches sounds much easier than they really are. I will try to keep some sort of blog here, for all your info craving, but I can't promise to do that regularly.
One thing, I want to mention for all envious here. As nice as all that sounds, it cost me quite a lot to make a decision to accept this position. With all positives and negatives together, I myself think, that the man who made the decision got to be either really crazy or really crazy.
As far as my relation with the project goes, I am currently withdrawing myself from it and removing all the references to it from my accounts (btw, RK, Micah or Stewart, could you remove me from SourceForge Xenocide project roster?). I am doing that due to agreement I will be signing, that basically says that 'all your bases now belongs to EA'. There are a few loopholes, that would allow me to work on outside project, but I would rather exploit them later, then now.
I guess that is what I wanted to post at first. If you have some questions or something - please, go ask!
P.S. EA studio in Florida hires masses and masses of new employees. Anyone wants to try his or her luck?
