I've been offered a position with Criterion Games, makers of the Burnout series and Black. I'll be moving to Guildford in January, starting work on the 22nd at the new Criterion offices (a big shiney building at the bottom of town).

I'll be doing mapping (AKA level design) for an unannounced title. Followers of the gaming industry might be able to guess what it is, but I wouldn't be able to confirm whether you're right yet! It's a low-level position, but it has a lot of potential for growth. The main bonus is that I'll be doing something that I'm interested in, working in an industry that I've always fancied getting into.

So, 'hurrah!' all around biggrin.gif

Congratulations, although there was never any doubt in my mind that you'd get it!

I do, of course, offer my services as removal man.

Cool! biggrin.gif

The Burnout games are some of the few games that the local rental place offers. Because of that, I've played them quite a few times before - fun stuff.

Game design has always been one of those jobs that I've thought would be cool to do. Hope you enjoy your time at your new job and continue to enjoy what you're doing! (Which I think you will)

Congrats Mata!


p.s. Make it a game where randomly shooting or swording (whats the word for the action of killing things with a sword?), needing ofcourse no gaming talent. I would adore you forever.

I'll see what I can do for you Oob smile.gif

Thanks everyone. My impressions of Guildford have been generally favourable, except there seems to be a distinct lack of pubs... Perhaps I've been spoilt by Winchester, where there are three pubs per occupant of the city* but Guildford seems quite barren of alcohol imbibing locations, which is rather distressing.

Thanks for the offer Matt, but we've got so much stuff that we will probably be getting some professional-ish people in to help us move. I negotiated a relocation payment smile.gif

*may be a slight exageration.

I've only just played a Burnout game, it is damn good fun. Before it was just another name I'd heard of but knew nothing else about.

Pubs in Guildford

All the names look a bit medieval. Are you sure this place isn't located some hundreds of years in the past? laugh.gif

I was a little bit tipsy after we got out the pub, and this was part of departing hug to you- as in for gongrats.
