“I want to be able to help drive the vision and direction of a game, but at the same time be hands on and physically implement and iterate on the low level of making games in a more substantial way than time affords me when working as a lead on multi-hundred person titles."Sounds excited. Good luck to him.
“So, with Rock Band 3 now design complete and on the final path to 0 bugs, GM and distribution, I decided to do that. Today’s my last day in the office at Harmonix. Tomorrow, I hop on a plane and fly down to Austin, TX, where I’ll get ready to start work at Twisted Pixel on a ridiculously cool new project."
“It’s the holy grail of game design positions – I’ll get to contribute and help drive the direction of a well funded and supported new title with a close knit superteam, while at the same time being hands on and able to directly impact all aspects of the game.”
