A game I worked on hits retail and digital shelves this Thursday. Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War III is a game I worked on very briefly many years ago. I detailed my experience working on the game in this post. I don’t have much more to add to that, at least publicly.
The one lingering question I’ve had all these years since that time was, would I make it into the credits? On the surface, that might seem like an egoistical and self-centered question to ask but hey, I did work on the game and even though none of my code probably made it into the final build, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that I would be acknowledged.
Given the short length of time I was on the project and how little of my code remained in the game, I was guessing there would be a 50/50 chance I’d make into the credits in some form. There was a beta release of the game earlier this month and while many people were searching YouTube for gameplay videos, I was hoping someone uploaded a video of credits. Sure enough, some did just that. My name did wind up in the “special thanks” section, along with a ton of other people. See for yourself in the video above.
A big thanks to Relic Entertainment for not forgetting about me and my tiny contribution to the game.
