Friday marks the last day my team will be working on Shadow-Born, the game we’ve been developing for Nokia and their N-Gage “gaming” system. I’ve been working on this game since June of 2005. The months have not been easy.
I’m acutely aware of blogging too much about work so I’ll have to choose my words wisely. I will say that our company is trying to learn a lot from how our project proceeded. A lot of the decisions will be analyzed. If any mistakes were found in how things were done, they will be duly noted. I really hope that the bad parts will be identified and avoided for future projects.
Having said that, I’m actually quite surprised at how the game turned out. I’ll be quite honest and say that during the fall, I had some serious doubts about the quality of the game. I thought it might turn out to be a disaster. Through some sheer determination and hard work though, the team came through turned out a pretty decent cell phone game. Unfortunately, I’m not sure how many of you will ever even see this game. As far as cell phone games go, they aren’t as sexy as PS3 or Xbox 360 games.
Um, I’m not sure if I should say this, but our game will get some exposure sometime soon. If you look at the calendar and kinda have some knowledge of the games industry, you’ll probably figure it out.
Anyways, I’m looking forward to moving on and doing something different. I don’t want to work on any more cell phone games, that’s it for me. Before that though, I’ll be taking next week off. I look forward to getting some rest and relaxing.
One day left!
