p.opus Posted September 14, 2015 Share Posted September 14, 2015 Super cool. The closest I came to the games industry was as a game tester for Microsoft. My one credit is as one of the core testers for Close Combat III the Russian Front. I worked on others as part of the test team(Pinball arcade, Baseball, Midtown Madness, AOE expansion) They were basically bug bashes but I was only "assigned" to that game. Soon thereafter, the projects started drying up and with them our positions as testers. I remember spending one afternoon playing with my test lead's Rokenbok just to see if we could get one car to replace another car's receiver. Ed Fries was an amazing guy, He was head of gaming (this was prior to his work with X-Box.). The dude was a genius. That job was so fun. probably the best year and a half I ever had. The entire Microsoft games division was eventually folded, but what good times we had. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
