Developer Interview with Noel Walling

Developer Interview with Noel Walling - EverQuest II - MMORPG.com

The EverQuest II official site has been updated with an internal interview with game designer Noel Walling.

  • Can you share a bit about your gaming background and how did you start in the gaming industry?

The first time I thought about being in "the industry" was at eleven or twelve when I found out that people got paid to "play" games – I mean, that's what those guys at Nintendo Power did, right? Play games all day, then charge kids three bucks a minute for help when they couldn't finish a level? Then there was a nice long stretch where I didn't think much about it at all – right up until shortly after EQ shipped. EQ really bordered on an obsession to me, so I realized I'd better do something productive with my gaming habit. So I hopped on a train and came down to interview with Brenlo for a GM position on EQ. He didn't hire me. In fact, it took another year before I was hired. I only stayed on as a GM in customer service for a little under a year before I was pulled over to help out on EQII.

  • When did you join the EQII team?

About a year before launch. November 18th, I believe. Just in time for everyone to be on vacation for Thanksgiving and Christmas!
