Today, we continue our series of Developer Profile Q&As where we take a more in-depth look at one of the people working on Funcom's Age of Conan. This week, we're talking to Orjan "Mathis" Tvedt, the Service & Quality Assurance Senior Manager for AoC.
Tell us a little about your childhood. How did school and where you live influence your choice to join the video game community?
Orjan "Mathis" Tvedt:
School had probably very little to do with me choosing to become a part of the video game community. I come from a small city on the west coast of Norway called Bergen. At least its small compared to cities you find in countries such as England, France or USA. It was a very good gaming community in this city and I got a job in one of the internet stores. We had some high profiled Quake and Star Craft players coming from this store and it was during the days of Everquest that I got my job in Funcom. While playing Everquest I decided to give the gaming industry a try.
