Dev Journals: So You Want to be an MMO Developer?

By Guest Writer on December 11, 2006

So You Want to be an MMO Dev: Part One (Page 3 of 3)

What is one thing people might be surprised to learn about working at Sigil?

Jeremy Jiao, Artist:
The ruthless cutthroat nature of the company might be news to some. Oh, I'd trust these guys with my life...but put a rubber band in their hand and ALL bets are off and I'm running for cover. Is it your birthday? Better wear a sweater cause the entire art department is going grab the nearest rubber band and light you up like a firing squad. Oh sure, you'll get cake and ice cream later...but inside, your rubber band induced welts will be crying the tears of a thousand homeless puppies.

Another surprising tidbit is that a larger than average number of the employees of Sigil have had a one point in their lives sported a mullet.'s sad, but I've got pictures of some of the people here to prove it.

Dave Baldwin, Artist:
We are not as violent as we seem in all our pictures. I mean smash this smash that... it's all a show. We here at Sigil . . . one sec, I need to kill this person asking me to change that shader. ::SPLAT:: OK, like I was saying, we are a happy loving place where we always agree that the color should be brown.

Devin Lafontaine, Senior Artist:
Almost all of us have iTunes installed, so we can peek at everyone's music all day. It's great. Headphones and tunes get me through the day, so it's pretty cool to be able to browse everyone's music selection, and hear their favorite stuff. The breadth of selection is startling. Death Metal? Check. Sinatra? Check. The Conan soundtrack? Check. Wham!? ...check. I dare you to find someplace where I can listen to Careless Whisper and cats singing Jingle Bells at the same time. It can't be done!
