I just accepted an offer to be a full-time game designer at N-Space in Orlando.

I wish I could tell you guys what I am working on, but I am under NDA. I start on a smaller title (mid-development) of a franchise most of you know of. Then I move over to a console title for a AAA franchise that all of you have played at some point. And when this title is announced, it will probably make you go "WTF???".

I eagerly await that day. ><

I work across from their Austin office....

NAND if you end up working on Halo get me a ride in the RL warthog.
When I show up to raid nights I am there to have fun, not to have a tantrum-prone, know-it-all diva decide to show up on some nights and detract from my enjoyment of raiding.

Don't get your hopes up. N-Space has no involvement with that franchise...yet. From their portfolio, it looks like they primarily deal with Nintendo handheld consoles.

I was guessing it'd have *something* to do with the Skylanders franchise.

I've been interested in trying that stuff out since they came out with Spyro's Adventure, but even though it might be fun, it's definitely a money sink for those toys you have to keep buying to unlock areas and characters in the game.

The neat thing about the 3ds version is that it's a unique title (the console versions all are ports of each other). We have the freedom to make our own game. So, we will receive some purchases from players who already own the console versions.

For the record, I will be working on the characters, handling their behavior and helping bring them to life.
