That's right everyone, put 2 and 2 2gether and it was pretty easy to figure out.

Midways games contacted shortly after I had released Haloid, and now I'm in Chicago Il getting pumped to work on a brand new project. It's official now, I start Monday, picking up more techniques as well as applying myself to a completely original up and coming title.

I had my doubts initially, but even my soon to be colleagues told me that their most passionate people don't ever stop creating. And that's who I intend to be.

Be prepared for the whole new entity that is montyoum, professional game designer, part time movie cranking machine.

YO




p.s.
BTW I'm still up for collaborating on a few things.
(Check previous journal entry)


BTW BTW I don't have internet yet (currently at starbucks paying an arm and a leg for tmobile wireless)

I'm hopefully be online monday.

Congratulation Monty Oum!
Midway. That's pretty huge.

Music is the area I am in currently
(I would concider sneaking some
colabitations on a future project
or 10 if it were possible. Original
music breakbeat/drum'n'bass/
hiphop...?)

Thanks for sharing your experiences
with us all. Please continue to
keep us up to date on how things
go at your new job.
I'm hoping to be a level designer
one day.

Take care.

And they're right, the most passionate people DO keep working. How else do you get better, right?

Good luck with your job and keep working on what you love.


And you're totally right, starbucks charges entirely too much for internet, especially considering how cheap bandwidth is. I mean, I already paid $45.20 for a double-mocha-non-fat-half-caf-soymilk-latte!

Congrats on entering the videogame world, but, ugh, Midway? Other than Stranglehold, they're not exactly producing much in terms of quality. They didn't develop LotR Online, nor the theoretically upcoming Unreal Tournament 3. Seem to be pretty much just a publisher. Check their release history/schedule- [link]

Tends to be crap these days. Unless you have a burning desire to work on The Wheelman, TNA iMPACT! or a port of MYST to the DS, I suggest you gain some work experience and then get the hell out of there. I know it's your life and you can't just pick whatever company (CAPCOM) you'd like to (CAPCOM JPN) work at (CAPCOM JAPAN!), but I hope they don't end up wasting your time. (Dead Rising 2? Don't mind if I do.) Chicago's nice, though.

When you last said you got a gig at a Chicago game CO, someone said, "Midway? That's gotta be midway." So I took that to be a strong posability. :) I could see you doing great work with them!

Good luck! And don't drive yourself into the dirt. :D
